With coffee and a pen…

The Illustration Friday theme is “people,”  and I’ve been trying to sketch a few whenever I go to one of the local coffee places.  (Hopefully I’m not *too* obvious about it!) These are all Vision Exact black micro point in a Strathmore toned (gray) art journal.



Learning to focus


The Illustration Friday theme is “pointy,” and this is where my mind went.  Life has so many distractions these days!

The illustration — which was actually an exercise in focus; in seeing the details of everyday objects — is watercolor and colored pencil on mystery paper.  The type and border are courtesy of Photoshop.  (The original illustration has hand lettering that says, “What’s the point?” but I did that more to play with letter forms than to express any particular world view.)
