First page of a watercolor moleskine that I have dedicated to The Grand Canyon State. Some Utah scenes included from a recent vacation.
These are the Gunther styles of arrow points I collect. The top one is made of dacite. The bottom one is obsidian (volcanic glass). Both are from the the Pacific NW United States. I was happy with the way the dacite point had less sheen to it than the glass point. These points are typically less than an inch long, but what they lack in size they more than make up for in point and razor sharpness. These are estimated at 300 to 700 years old. Done mostly in Sharpie and Pilot pens with red marker.
It’s a FRUIT FLY (smile) get it eh? get it ? It was done on “banana skine” (ouch!) with sharp proboscis.
Micron 005 pens. I was goofing around to see how close I could space these lines with Pigma colored micron pens in ruled cross hatch lines. Later I just went free form, its more fun.
Initials in Chaos. I have plunged into a new sketchbook (and a maze) of ideas and images. Black and red nylon marker ink.
OK! (finally) My first download is, of course, the Grand Canyon. I did this from memory as I have been there many times. I was using a white ink pen for the first time but without much satisfaction. The dark gash is Bright Angel canyon, location of the well known Phantom Ranch lodge. Plateau Point sits directly beneath it and offers a breathtaking view of the Colorado River (seen as the green strip). I may have used some artistic license showing the river at the point from which this sketch was remembered, but I think it works anyway. It is done with black felt tip pen and color markers. I even wrote some notations which I normally do not.
