where'er you go

Still not quite sure where the pen is taking me but that's alright. It's really alright.

How you build up the layers in your drawings is fascinating. Perhaps you should consider doing a tutorial for those of us who only dream of being able to draw like. Maybe that would get you out of your funk?
BTW, where/how did you learn your calligraphy skills? I'm always as blown away with the different styles of writing you use in your drawings as I am by your actual drawing skills.

Hurrah! I am LOVING this work in progress thing. I've been wanting to see how you work for so long. Do you sketch it out in pencil first? This is really wonderful.

There is yet a ghost-like quality to this piece which is really seducing.

I love seeing your progress picks...a very, very smart way to update the blog during the aforementioned dry-spell (of which I am noticing none of, by the way)!

You're so good my friend. So good.

I am fascinated with how you can get such detail from a ball point pen! Do you use any special techniques for making sure it doesn't get all goopey? This is really fantastic... keep going with this idea -- I love it!

Cheers, peeps.


Rhomany, this is the closest I'll get to a tutorial. I don't think I'd ever be able to put into words how I do this stuff. I just draw. Everything i do is self taught, so as far as the calligraphy is concerned it's just years of practice. I've always enjoyed it. Even when I wasn't drawing I was always doing the calligraphy stuff.

Pip, nope, I don't sketch this stuff in pencil first. Just light outlines of where things go. Then if I want to change it I can always draw over them.

Lynne, I do usually keep a pice of tissue to wipt the pens in case they get 'goopey'. Although if I do get pens that are like that I just stop using them for drawing. It's too annoying.

Thank you all, guys.
