Doodle Book: Post 6

Blammo!

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


so, at your earliest convenience, please send me

Somehow I'm always near the top on these... Maybe I should wait longer.

SHOW OFF Dog is the best dog.

Paul Petty said...

I agree with Kevin. Your stuff is always fun to see Anthony.

Carrie Liao said...

Oh man! I love the last one with the robot blasting someone, the girl and window with blinds, and the happy girl with the windblown dress. And, of course, the one I got :)

You're too good!

sam said...

27th of July. Now that is some worthwhile multi-tasking!

Louise said...

I love the big and little robot one, so cute and yet terrifying :)

Jeff C said...

So many great sketches it's hard to choose my favs. I will say that the robot suit with the tractor shovel and the merman destroying the submarine are probably standouts in my mind.

Also, I just got another kuretake water brush as a gift and I'm totally going to fill it with india ink now...

rossichka said...

Hello! Lovely sketches - you are so productive! I like most 28th of July and 10th of August.

Aaron Ludwig said...

So darn lovely. The golfer is my favorite.
Please enter me in the raffle again. Thanks.

Lauren said...

I WANT ONE! P.S. My birthday is coming up soon.... :) Love you!

Cheryl Johnson said...

For some reason the bear on August 12th, or at least his pose, reminds me of Hedgehog in the Fog. And now that I've said/typed the words "Hedgehog in the Fog," I will away to the YouTubes to watch it again...and again.

Love your stuffs, Anthony!

Rob said...
