Really pretty place, some kind of a park with boats and trees along the Belt, I looked at many times. On the way to White Planes, struggling in traffic, it was a moment of happiness. Sepia ink and Faber-Castell colored pencils in my red Moleskine.
latest updates: falcon
Trying sepia J.Herbin in new book, Hemp Sketch(6×6). I saw someone (on Flickr) in India doing watercolor in Hemp book with effect of a rice paper, so I had to get this book on my yesterday’s trip to Manhattan. But it made in different countries, his in Malasia, so paper is not the same. May be his was Hemp Watercolor? Anyway, tried my new Falcon here.
My dream came true. I got Falcon.
What a cool day. I showed couple of my drawings in Moleskine to a guy, I was buying my pen from, because inside, my soul was dancing and I wanted to hug everybody. He really liked it, showed it to the other man, and than gave me a present, really nice italian black ink, which usually comes with $2000 fountain pens, Italiane Vetrerie Foresta. I felt like a kid, who skipped class and discovered the Universe. I keep it a secret.
Here I sketched people on Subway in Pieni ball pen.
I sketched these Falcons in the Moleskine large sketch-book and, as the pages on the right got filled up, I started on the left. The Falcon on the right was done in April 2008 and the one on the left April 2009.
Some notes from Photoshop World ’08 in Vegas and another falcon (from the novel):
