#72 a mandala – a video






paper trial – aka sketchbook #1

I got new stuff the other day. One is Strathmore’s Toned Tan Sketch Paper. There’s 50 sheets, 80 lb, 8.5″ x 5.5″. It’s small and light. One thing I did like was the ink from the Micron pens dried faster on this paper so I smeared less. The sketchpad pages aren’t perforated so this will be my first sketchbook. This is my test drawing. the paper and pens work well together.








this was going to be pitched, I tried to fix things but figured I would keep going just to see what comes out of it. There’s metallic marker, black ink and colored pencils. The only part that was originally going to have a color are the bubbles. That obviously didn’t happen. This just looks dirty and unappealing but I’ll post the mistakes along with everything else.
