Style experiments

Holland Village Food Centre. Been reading a bit of Sempe and I thought I'd use his don't-join-the-lines style. It's amazing how much details I could avoid with this style. Noodler's Ahab/Noodler's Spirit of Bamboo ink.

This is my kitchen. Always wanted to try collage more. Managed to finally settle down and get around to cutting some pieces of scrap paper I'd been saving for this.

last few drawings from december

The POSB ATM machine at Bedok. Ballpoint + watercolour + photoshop.

The new Bedok interchange. Homemade cane pen + waterolour.

My dad likes going to The Line at Shangri-la for special occasions. My uncle on the left and my dad on the right. I try not to eat too much since it is a buffet. Or I will have to sit up in bed to sleep. Hero pen + watercolour.

Had some dubious unlabeled bottle of ink and I thought I should just use it to get rid of it so I can put some new good ink into the bottle. So I drew this. Rather fun to just draw in the noir style I must say!
Brush and ink.

Using the new Spirit of Bamboo waterproof ink Aunty Amy gave me. I put it in my hero pen since I can wash it easily after using. Hero pen + watercolours.

Drawing with James at Holland V. Noodler's Ahab pen with Sentosa Tranquility ink + watercolour.

Noodler's Ahab pen with Sentosa Tranquility ink + watercolour.

Pilot Falcon pen with Ebony blue ink. Nice ink. It's not waterproof and it bleeds well.

Added gum arabic to coffee to make ink. Don't know if that's the proper way to make ink. But so far it's working. Ballpoint + coffee ink.

My brother-in-law, Dao Zhe, is back from Vienna! He, Von and Xiwen sat on the living room floor and sorted out the presents as is tradition to do in their house when one comes back from overseas. Parker 51 + photoshop.
