Sharp as a Shark

Back on track
This is actually the first page of a new sketchbook I'll be using on my saturday morning sessions. I've not ever worked on any of the Stillman & Birn sketchbooks, but the paper feels nice and stiff. It seems thick enough for watercolor and the ink of the pi...

Sunny Side Up
I bought some blue W&N ink. Lovely little glass container, nice light blue chroma. It takes a little getting used to though. What I like about this is that you are forced to think about how much ink you take on your pen more than you would using black ink, ...

I was 2 minutes in my lunchbreak today at work when my boss came in. The lunch break was over. I bought these Pilot parallel pens and I'm practicing with them during my lunch breaks. It's great fun and I hope to be able to show some stuff soon. In the mean ...

Today is a perfect day to create
In fact, every day is a perfect day, but what I wanted to emphasize is the fact that today, we have. Tomorrow, we don't know. So it's better not to delay until tomorrow. Especially if you are struck by inspiration. I've learned to always write down ideas wh...
