I’ve had some time to sketch some more recently and have been filling up some pages in my little pen & ink moleskin sketchbook. I really enjoy playing in this little sketchbook!
Most all of my sketching has been with a micron 02 pen. Though I did use a few prisma markers on the upper left one and the 2 in the middle were done with my brush pen:
These really have been a lot of fun! Just loose sketches – no idea what I’m going to draw when I start (especially when it came to the rabbit-thing in the upper right). And I’m able to exercise different techniques here and there as I sketch:
Some turn out great, some turn out so-so, some turn out weird. But the whole point is to practice and get the “miles in” as it were:
And at times I do use my moleskines for a specific purpose. For instance, I have a contest coming up where I need to create a war zeppelin. This little sketch book is a perfect size to work on thumbnail sketches:
I’m sure I’ll be posting more and more moleskine sketches in between more finished illustrations here on my blog. Lot of fun and a pleasure to do!
