Testing, testing

One of the coolest things about where I work is being within a stone's throw of so much tremendous talent. Seriously, I can't walk five paces without running into someone who's generating fantastic and inspiring work.

After a couple of recent chats with both Bob Logan and Dan Krall, I decided to dust off the old scratch quills and colored acrylic inks. I love trying new stuff out (and re-trying out old stuff). Thanks, guys, for inspiring me!

In other news, the raffle for drawings continues; so if you like getting free stuff in the mail consider leaving a comment HERE. Until next time, be good!

Doodle Book: Post 6


Hiya, bloggers and blogettes! How's things?

I've gotten a few questions about my doodling process. It's pretty simple: I'm drawing in a Handbook Journal sketchbook with a Uniball Roller pen (micro 0.5mm) and Kuretake Water Brush, which I have instead filled with Rapidograph Universal Black India ink.

Since the doodles are just for fun, I'm not fussing over much. The tools are simple and I don't do an under drawing in pencil (who's got time for that?). It leads to a lot of mistakes and accidents, but it also forces me to commit to the lines and shapes I make.

Before we get to the doodles, here are this time's RAFFLE WINNERS!

Each of you will be getting a doodle in the mail
