Brooklyn Art Library Part III

Here's the last instalment of my story for the Brooklyn Art Library's Sketchbook Project.

Brooklyn Art Library Part II

Here's another instalment of my story for the Brooklyn Art Library's Sketchbook Project.

Coffee Shop Creeping - January 2018 Edition

Now I've that I've mostly switched back from using my sketchbook Moleskine to a plain notebook for coffee shop sketching, I'm being reminded pretty strongly of what a difference good paper makes. Ah, well - these are more about practice than developing finished work. 

Coffee Crowd Progress

Inking done, then a day of skin tones, a day of cleaning up pencil lines, and finally onto the colour.

Greenwater Lake

I took time while camping last weekend to draw around the campsite and at the lake. Anytime I draw anything at all botanical in nature, I find myself feeling like a Zachari Logan rip-off, but I enjoy it too much to stop.

Beaver Creek Finished

I'm so pleased with this little narrative of a recent family adventure. It's quite different from anything I've done before, both in subject matter, and watercolour style.

Birthday Flashback

Going back to my wonderful birthday: earlier this month I spent a lovely afternoon in the sun, drawing by the river in downtown Saskatoon. I'm so pleased to have come away with a drawing that is easily recognizable (though the sunburn wasn't as appreciated).

Tiny City

I drew this little city in a 4"x6" accordion sketchbook with ten panels - there are plans to colour it in the future, but I also love it just as it is. Can you spot Santa? Have a peek at my Tumblr for bigger images.

Paper Cranes

Paper cranes, drawn on paper, scanned into a computer, blown up, printed, cutout, re-arranged, and drawn out again (by hand, because carbon paper doesn't work on lacquered panel). Evan wasn't convinced that all this fuss was easier than just winging it, but IT REALLY WAS.
