Just an impression of summer drawn one evening last week.
I don’t have enough patience to do detailed drawing. I used Falcon with Sepia ink and colored pencils, and touch of Sepia ink wash for value of trees. Every day Manhattan looks different, depending on the weather, time of the day and my mood.
Little sketches in squares. When no time to sit and draw I can pretend that I am invisible and scribble Everyday-ki on my way.
This was one of my first submissions for Lettercult. I’m interested in typography which could be applied to a children’s fantasy, although sometimes this means the letter forms can be a little obscure.
I used a Stabilo pointVisco.
Dunkin Donuts in the City. I got really interesting calligraphy fountain pen, Hero M86 Chinese pen with bended nib, standing like a ballerina on her toes (very cheap, $12). Here I used it both ways and difference in thickness is amazing. I saw it by Tia from Singapore on Flickr and loved her line work. Here added some touches of markers. Never thought I’ll end up using markers in my sketches.
Eddie’s Pizza Truck in Manhattan. Falcon fountain pen and Faber-Castell colored pencils in Moleskine sketch. It is 14 today, elki-palki.
I have interesting ability to see things, I saw before in a new light, every time is a first time. I forget how it looked before. This why I am never bored. (May be everybody is like me?) So this how I saw the place, where we usually go for cat food, this time, with dramatic shadows and bits of red. Watercolor (Japanese) and ink in Arches book.
