a minimal woman

More experiments in simplified drawing. I'm also using a Japanese brush. I really like them but find it curious that they kind of collapse/flop after I make a stroke. The usual ones I use spring back into position so drawing with them is like flicking the brush around. The Japanese brushes are so much more versatile though.

Also, I am so in love with thick, thick lines these days all I'm sketching with are huge chisel tip markers.
