Driving through Manhattan on New Year’s Eve, was lucky to escape ticket from NYPD officer. Used interesting Exam pencil from Fiber-Castell with flat lead 2B.
I drew here bag I took with me Upstate and on the top is my new pencil with level in it, old, with 1.18 mm lead, very cute, it says “Monroe” on the clip. I was thinking it could be useful while drawing architecture, but honestly I am used to trust my eye more than measuring. We got into the middle of snow blizzard coming back home from Upstate, it took us 10 hours of driving, 4 bags of pretzel sandwiches with cheddar and tones of music on Ipod.
This green marble combo fountain pen/pencil from 1930 is really good looking and would be fun to draw with if I only would be able to figure out how to refill pen side with ink. I have a wild guess that it should be this little fetus metal clip in the middle, if it pressed it will squeeze the sock. Didn’t try it yet. Underneath is Poly Prep, school, drawn with flat brush and ink. I love flat brushes. Should do something on different paper with it.
Adorable big Wigman advertising pencil from old times with 1.18 mm lead. I used thick Bohemia Works woodless pencil 6B( it broke, so I wrapped it with scotch tape), white pen, couple of colored pencils and Ebony for people in the doc office.
Art stuff. Here some of my vintage pencils, old marble pen/pencil combo (still don’t know how to fill it up with ink), my mom’s letter knife, white pen, little box with hinged lid for eraser, sharpener and extra leads for old pencils, Blackwing, Rosetta 5’6, water brush, Autopoint, Mordan with pretty hard lead, some of my Moleskines over photo book of my works on walls. On the left photo of this quick murals (more then 10 feet tall each, ceiling is 26 feet) used scaffold here.
Sketched with Ebony pencil when I had a minute, from all sides, in the office, in the car, waiting for kielbasa and eggs for late breakfast. I drew another advertising pencil, Kolberg with pencils and a bit of ink. My abnormal curiosity brought me to breaking old eraser in it and messing up insides, so gotta recheck how it works and fix it better.
Doodling in the car while waiting in Connecticut and 4 color Opel pencil, for which I can’t find leads. 1.8 mm Very interesting mechanism.
Emmons Ave near Canal. Further away bunch of restaurants, marina, some stores, boats on the right, behind the bridge. Teens like to hang out here. I used 3 inks and one green color pencil Watercolor Derwent for the car in Watercolor Moleskine A4.
