Some large drawings

I have been having some fun with the Masterpiece 60mm marker.  I quickly exhausted the speedflow black ink it came with.  This ink has the best effect through a new nib.  I was unable to get this quality of streaking with any of the other inks. All of the following drawings are 18″x24″ in size.

Seriously though, look at these streaks:

Then I experimented with the purple One4All ink.  Straight out of the bottle it is a little too thick to flow easily in this pen.  …

New Pens!

I just got a box of new pens!

I had been filling the Molotow pens with Liquitex acrylic ink but I wanted to try the Molotow One4All ink.  Let me just say that there is no comparison.  The Liquitex inks are transparent water based ink with good color. The One4All inks are smooth, fast drying, matte and very opaque.  They are UV resistant and very permanent as well.  Which is good, a lot of paint pens do not have archival quality ink.  …

Sketchbook Time Machine

I pulled a book out of a box in my closet and flipped it open to this page.  October 24th, 2009.  I pulled out a few that I found interesting.  Note the arrow pointing out the first drawing on the third row, this is the sketch I used for Number 368, which I completed a week later on Halloween.


Small Ink drawings

These are some more paint pen ink drawings.  I used Molotow empty markers 111EM and 211EM filled with the Liquitex acrylic ink.  These are smaller than the other ink drawings I made with these pens.  These are 2.5″ x 3.5″ inches each.  I worked on this set on September 28th, 2012 around 5:50 am.  I was working fast and they are un-numbered so they are probably out of order.  These are 18 of my favorites from that morning.

This is a page from Tuesday, July 7th, 2009  at 12:24 pm.  It is the first page of the book.  I had just finished 354 and 355 and was working on 356 and 357.  This was a small sketchbook, 5.5″ x 8.5″ it was a secondary sketchbook, one that got stuck in my bag and brought all over the place.  Surprisingly, there is only one coffee stain on this page.  It was was in circulation from 7/7/09 until 5/26/12.

Here are few I found interesting:


Some more ink drawings with purple.  I am use the On The Run Soultip .3″ with Liquitex “acrylic ink” which comes in my favorite paint colors.  This is Dioxazine Purple and Sap Green.

I was looking through some old sketchbooks this morning and decided to post a page from the past.  This page is from April 12th, 2008. I had finished #278 the week before and was working on #279.

Here is a close up on one that caught my eye:

Here is a another set of sequenced drawings.  This time 204 black and white drawings in 1:42.
