I carry a small pocket sized moleskine sketchbook when I'm out people watching in the world. These days I draw directly in ink with a Japanese brush marker which works well for these fast and loose sketches. Drawing in ink rather than penciling things out carefully keeps the drawings much more spontaneous and since people are constantly moving anyway I can get things down very quickly and move on to the next one!

I'm always on the prowl for cool photos that might be good subjects for my quickie paintings. This one is from a photo of illustrator Molly Crabapple that I found on her site. The photo had that modern/retro feel that I love and I thought she had a real Elvgren-ish expression on her face!
