Yesterday’s day-in-the-life comic featured a #drawaTog challenge. That’s me in pigtails waving and my Ondu pinhole camera in the two middle panels. You can see what others have drawn at the #drawatog hashtag on Twitter. You can also follow @drawaTogparty for info on the challenge. Incidentally, for this the pen that I used was a Uniball Vision…

Sunday funday

I’m starting to kind of find my groove with this exercise. My little comic version of myself is still a little awkward but whatever. 


So I tried drawing each panel using my Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and it was a bit unruly for the small squares. I think today I will go back to using a regular pen. When I went to color in the panels I could’t even remember what some of the drawings were of! The thing…

A day in the life

Today’s assignment in my Sketchbook Skool class is to draw moments of my day, comic style. So in the morning I pre-drew the boxes and filled them in as the day progressed. I started out using my brush pen but then switched out different pens over the course of the day. I think today I…

Plastic Bunny

I am taking another Sketchbool Skool class, called Polishing. To my delight, the first week is all about comics. I have read and loved comics my entire life and this week I fulfilled my lifelong dream of drawing one! (Caution, Critic’s voice ahead): I realize it’s not the best but damn. I really had a…

Blue hair

A self portrait I sketched yesterday. 

Fun with a ballpoint pen

I had a really busy week and didn’t have much time in the evenings to sketch so I spent a little bit of time each night working on this ballpoint pen self portrait. My mom (who is an amazing artist) gave me me a quick tutorial on Facebook on how to draw faces so I…

A new pinhole camera

Yesterday was a great day because in the mail I received a new pinhole camera from my friend Todd, who 3D prints them. This is his newest design and I volunteered to run some film through it to test it out. I’m so excited to play with it! There will be some new adventures using…

Self & tea

Here are another couple of days worth of sketching in my Kraft paper notebook.  I love to draw eyes with the ballpoint pen, but tend to lose interest once I get to the rest of the face. Maybe I should spend a few days working on the same portrait. I couldn’t think of anything else…

Art supplies 

Still having fun with the kraft paper notebook! Here are a couple of days worth of quick sketches. 

A little color

More camera sketching fun in my kraft paper notebook. Really enjoying drawing in this! Still trying to wrap my head around shadow and highlights but enjoying the process. I also wanted to see how this paper would do with watercolor so I added some background – something new for me. 

My precious

Last night I decided I wanted to sketch my Yashica Mat. I also wanted to use my white pen and toned paper – something I’ve never tried before. Looking at shading and highlights is a new concept for me. I had fun!
