Last Summer Ride

With fall coming at us at a crantastic speed, this piece is about that last summer bike ride. You know what I'm talking about!

I have been playing around with nibs lately and wanted to try to develop a piece with nib and brush. Gotta say, I really like the level of control I can get with these babies! Also trying a more direct approach to painting which I rather like.

I keep being like 'oh man I should scan some stuff in' but then I think 'or I could draw!' and guess which one wins out?

Some recent ink shenanigans - I forgot how much I love a good nib! (also: did you know you could spellcheck the word "shenanigans"?)

I have some new things to post but before I do, here is a small cache of experimental sketchbook drawings I found on my hardrive:




I love to draw like this in my sketchbook but find it really hard to blend this type of drawing with my portfolio style. Although I really like both styles the two seem to be at odds.

I'm working on another big drawing: Bikes! Houses! Flying! It's very exciting.


Big here!

While I was drawing this I was thinking "gee I think Mina will like this one".

And here are some gesture drawings from the very recent past.
