Pen and paper

Art Supplies

While I’ve been laid up with a sprained ankle, I’ve been playing with lettering.  My artist friend Joanne sent me this quote, and it seemed the perfect subject — not to mention a good use of art supplies!  Unfortunately, I don’t know who said it, so I can’t give credit where credit’s due.

The main illustration is Slicci pen and Uni-Ball Vision Exact, with Prismacolor markers (and some old kids’ markers I found lying around.)  The background color splotches are via Photoshop; I would have done them in watercolor, but I remembered just in time that the Slicci pen isn’t waterproof.

I got some lettering inspiration from Jenny Doh’s fun and colorful “Creative Lettering,” and a push from the Illustration Friday theme, “Paper.”
