The anatomy-of-a-sketch involves deciding on a subject, creating a thumbnail sketch, followed sometimes by multiple drawing attempts. (Rinse and repeat daily!)
I'm excited to introduce my new urban illustrations! Each of these illustrations was done on location in pen in my Moleskine sketchbook.
Thanks to a drawing course on Domestika, I've been taking a looser approach to the new art and illustrations I've created of late.
My rainy day illustrations are part fantasy, part autobiographical. While I might not be dancing in the rain, I did do some retail therapy!
N is for Nachos and New Illustrations - because who doesn't like nachos (or nectarines?) Needless to say, I had a lot of fun drawing these!
C is for Cat and Other Illustrations features freehand drawn ink and watercolor illustrations done in my Moleskine art sketchbook.
The latest illustration from my Moleskine sketchbook was a riff on a theme. Or, more precisely, I used my lines to play around with the A-Line!
This past week I did more viola playing than sketching (you can read some of the nice reviews of New York City Ballet‘s performances at the Kennedy Center here and here); but on the 3+ hour train ride home yesterday evening I did quite a bit of catching up. In fact, I filled up the rest of the pages in my little Moleskin sketch book!
If you look carefully, you’ll even see more of my various head studies showing through the pages…
And, when I ran out of pages in my sketch book, I grabbed the next thing handy – the envelopes from my paychecks – and did these sketches with ink and my French Grey Prismacolor marker.
Each to his own, I guess!
