Noodles

And I bought a fedora hat at vivo that night.

after enchancing in photoshop



After scanning, the drawings, I usually use photoshop to crop and use "levels" (under image/adjustments) to darken the darks and/or brighten the whites. It makes the drawings more crisp.

this morning


Went to the post office this morning to collect my new 2.4mm nib parallel pen I ordered from ebay. Now I have the 1.5mm, 2.4mm and 3.8mm ones. I had noodles with tomato ketchup and tea (drawn with the new pen) I had my gouche pill box with me too.

traveller

I drew these two comics on my bed late at night because I didn't want to go to sleep yet. I still wanted to draw.
these don't have a full story. Just a quick capture of a moment. that's all I could draw before I got too sleepy.

uni-ball + painter.

pencil + painter.

inks

inks on my table. Acrylic, calligraphy and ecoline inks. I like ecoline ink best for the hero pen. The other two are good for nib pens.
