Just some shells. Drawn in my travel Moleskine. That's it. Snail shells. Oh, and a letter written on a sea shell. Just that.

I love your drawings! Are they done with ball point pen? I can't quite tell because some of the colors I've never seen in ball point the Claret cork.

Thanks, guys.

Laurel, this one is done with a fine liner and a black ballpoint pen. The cork, and other sepia drawings, are not done with a ballpoint. They were made with a fineliner. It's a Pilot G-tec.

You'd be surprised the colours you can get in ballpoint, though (well you can here in the UK). I've got loads of different colours, including a browny onwe.
