This is commissioned piece, a little different. It is about a dentist, view from the mouth, and on the back funny tools : hummer, nails, glue, contact cement. I had fun doing that. Used my usual stuff: ink and Kuretake with help of Lamy Safari.
latest updates: Kuretake
This happy little car I met in Brooklyn. It says “Twins” on the side, because of 2 guys, musicians, who perform on events and gatherings in the community, I was told. It was in the shade of the tree, but bathing in the sunlight, spilled between leaves. It made me smile, I felt hope.
I used ink and Kuretake pens on Arches board.
“Five Guys”, in Kingston, Upstate NY. Love their burgers and huge portion of fries. Ink and Kuretake.
Tangerine juice. Homey kitchen scene. It said “Tangerine juice” in Japanese. This cute juicer I bought few years ago on flea market at Coney Island, some vintage piece.
I used Pear ink and new sample of Noodler’s, color made with few Kuretake pens.
Bread. Ink and Kuretake. Bread from the corner store, we get it early in the morning freshly baked and hot.
Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, NY. It says online that in the mid-seventeenth century Dutch settlers called this part of Brooklyn Yellow Hook because of the color of the soil. ink and Kuretake brush pens.
Attractive house at Manhattan Beach in Brooklyn. I went for appointment and was surprised again by diversity of architecture and by new construction. May be it is my ability to see things in a new light, that makes me get charmed by the same objects, no wonder I love Proust so much, or may be houses do grow on Manhattan Beach like mushrooms after the rain.
I am running out of ink and using more and more not favorable leftovers and hesitate to throw art things out, so here I used old ink mixtures, Kuretake brush pens, Muji pen on Bockingford 90 lb paper.
