Ask Andrea

I am currently beavering away, creating my fourth zine in the 'How To Draw' series. This one is, again, about drawing with the ballpoint pen and I'll be taking a closer look at the colour ballpoint. For the first time, I'll also be including a 'problem page'!

So, if you have any questions about drawing with ballpoint pens please ask away. I'll choose a few that I'll endeavour to answer in the new zine - available at the beginning of August.

I'd better get my socks on!

Previous zines available HERE.

Oooh, that's a very cool drawing! And I can't wait to hear the Q and A's regarding ballpoint pen art! You are so inspiring, Andrea!

If you are drawing with a ballpoint, how do you avoid the blobs of ink that form on the ball after a lot of use?

How come your pens never "blob"?

Ja przepraszam że piszę po Polsku ale nie jestem dobra z angielskiego.
Chciałabym tylko powiedzieć że rysunki są niesamowite. To co robisz ze zwykłą kartką i cienkopisem jest niezwykłe. Jestem uczennicą szkoły Plastycznej w Polsce a Ciebie biorę za wzór.
I'm sorry that I write in Polish but I'm not good at English.
I'd just like to say that the drawings are amazing. What you do with the ordinary paper and Roller is unusual. I am a student of art school in Poland, and you take as a model.

Yes my problem is with blobs too. My biros often blob right from the start. The blobs aren't even like the nice inky arty blobs you might make with a dip pen either... they are gloopy and sticky and have a habit of getting onto my hands and face and down my clothes too (funny, I have the same problem with chocolate!)

Looking forward to the zine!

Thanks guys. I'll be answering a number of questions - and number one on the list is the blobs and blotches!


Welcome, Magda.

Hi Dale,
I don't think so. As they were always intended to be a run of 1000, and in the spirit of zines, I think I should stick to that. I have an idea maybe in the future though for a compilation of all the 'How To...' series.
