Happy Friday all. Continuing onward here we have a gentleman - or madam actually, could go either way - who apparently said "aaaah" with too much enthusiasm during a doctor's visit and ended up needing some stitches.
The sketches I've been posting this week have been drawn with one of my favorite new (or somewhat new) art-making toys, a Pentel brush pen, or "Color Brush" as they call it.
It's a great tool if you're a lover of ink as I am and if you'd like to merge the two-part process of drawing with ink - that being the bottle of ink and the brush. It feels and looks like a brush, keeps it's tip surprisingly well, and offers a wide variety of mark-making. The downside is that you can go through the ink cartridges in a day (or an hour). Being the jerry rigger that I am I found a way to inject ink into the pen. You just need to puncture a tiny hole in the top and use a thin needle to inject your ink, my preference being Speedball Super Black. Give the it a try sometime. Tons of fun.
