Train girls

One of my favourite things to do is draw people (well, okay, girls) sitting next to me on the train. I’ve drawn quite a few of them:

Leonardt 111EF and inkwash on Fabriano Accademia paper.

 

an inkwash sketch I did to test out Fabriano paper. not as good as Schoellershammer, but good nonetheless. a bit more tooth, and way more feathery. but it’s still very useable, and it has a nice texture. my favourite sketchbook, Fabriano’s Venezia, also has this paper. It’s great for inkwashing on the go.

Rebirth! Yep, a switch from LJ. the community seems to be slowly dying (even Brandon Graham is switching over), and I’ve been wanting to go for something a bit more swanky for a while now. let’s see how this goes… the importing of my old pages was very easy to do anyway, so there’s that.

tiny drawing, but the scan turned out pretty big. the paper can handle it.

Dr. Sketchy’s Amsterdam 26-6-2010

I found out last week that Molly Crabapple, the inventor of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School was going to be in Amsterdam this saturday for a signing and mini Dr.Sketchy’s sesion. So I signed up, and yesterday I had a great time drawing from a live model. here’s a badly done collage of some of the sketches I did (click on it to go bigger, click on that to go huge!):

Initials BB

I’ve been on a huge Gainsbourg kick lately (both Serge and Charlotte, whose IRM record with Beck is tremendous) and when Initials BB came on the CD player in the car today, I knew I had to draw Bardot as a tribute.
