Tiger hat girl!

It's been a while but here's a new girl. I've been working on a lot of very technical drawing stuff lately so the other night when I got home I was definitely in need of some "real art" therapy. Yeah, I needed that ;)

Cafe haunting and sketching

Whenever I don't have paintings to show, I like to fall back on the good ol' Moleskine sketchbook drawings. I do a lot of these while I'm grabbing a snack at cafes/airports etc. I used to go to a local figure drawing session but kind of fell out of the habit and so these 'people' drawings fill that need of drawing folks from life. Drawn directly in ink with a Japanese brush pen marker in the small Moleskine plain paper book (not the moleskine "sketchbook").

Watercolor pen

It's been a while since I've posted but I just haven't had the time to devote to my quickie paintings lately. Since I do art all day long and often do commission stuff after that, there are just so many hours in the day!
But I did do these little watercolors recently. I know that there is definitely no shortage of cool drawing and painting supplies out there, but I had the idea to rig up a foam tipped watercolor brush-thingie using a plastic tube and some foam rubber. I wanted something that you could just draw with like a fat watercolor marker and what do you actually works! These were done in a few minutes each...super fast, super fun!
