Today after buying chinese sweets for lunch (no food at home), I sketched this sunny street (64str), italian and jewish neighborhood. Amazing aromas of cooking food, I can only imagine what herbs and spices where used for that meat, flew in my car windows. People passed, children played outside, sun, love in the air. Than I saw a bold guy in a shirt with the sign : “I don’t discriminate, I hate everybody.” That was pretty weird. What planet he fell from?
latest updates: sepia
Usually, I sketch with graphite pencil, ink and then color. On these sketches I tried inking as the last stage of my painting. Both are painted with watercolor
Right one was done first (I’m a leftie :p) and inked with a sepia brush pen.
Left one (which I’m much fond of) was outilined with a black colored pencil. I’m trying to get that same effect with ink. No luck as of yet, but I’m hopeful.
Few minutes lunch in rich house (nasty owner). I always liked this heavy kitchen lamp racks. The rest of the decoration – you can die laughing: nursery colors, topsy-turvy, lime green trim work, suffocating strips of wallpaper, insane eclectic. Decorator is 75 years old. Only proves that money isn’t everything, it only adds to what you have. I used Kuretake 13 brush pen and sepia ink.
My contribution to Miguel’s Moley for the MoleyX12 project. This is the most amazing group of artists to be involved with, however, as sometimes happens with these projects things have slowed right down. In fact, we are almost at a standstill. And, I’m one of the worst offenders. I hope one day our Moleys will all find their way home.

This is another from my Moleskine diary. I started it on the train. I didn’t have a sketchbook with me but wanted to draw, so I used the last page and pocket at the back of the diary. That was the only bit of paper, in the diary, that could stand all the cross hatching I’d threw at it.
This one appears in my ‘Mole zine’. Blogged here; http://andreajoseph24.blogspot.com/
Sketching at lunch. I miss scribbling in my Moleskine. This is not food, paints, glazes mixtures. Ink, sepia, pocket Moley.
