A fountain at a hotel in Mexico. Ballpoint pen, dissolved in places with alcohol-based hand sanitizer (blue and pink haze at top and bottom caused by closing book on liquid ink/sanitizer mix).
Outlined in Sharpie pen, filled in with ballpoint.
Mama Roja Mexican Kitchen on Lake Hefner in Oklahoma City. The initial sketch was done with Sharpie pen, which is something I hadn’t really done before. There were a bunch of great boats in the foreground, but it dark before I could get to them.
Some people sort their shoes into neat rows, by color, brand, or by how formal or casual they are. I don’t.
Various colors of roller pen, with pencil shading.
Quartz Mountain Christian Camp, where I went to a church retreat this weekend. There is a bright blue metal bridge between two trees there, serving no apparent purpose. Ballpoint pen.
Canada’s $1 coin, affectionately known as the “loonie,” because of the loon on the tails side. Drawn in ballpoint pen.
This is a fire engine at the Western Development Museum in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.
I drew this at Halloween, but at the time I didn’t like it enough to post it. I salvaged it later by adding the red background.
The thing I loved about this pumpkin the most was all of the pumpkin “battle scars” (indented grayish rough areas). I don’t know where they come from, so I can only assume that garden vegetables wage elaborate battles when no one is looking.
