Black and white

These couple weeks, I've been carrying around a dip pen, black ink in a small squeeze bottle and a portable Chinese brush. So I'm liking just black and white for now. And I love the satisfying feel of drawing with a dip pen. Not as convenient as a fountain pen, but there is something really enjoyable about using a dip nib.

The weird caped person pic was done with a Twsbi fountain pen with blacks added in using the Chinese brush. 

Daler-Rowney Synthetic flat brush with Chinese ink.

Syle test

I like experimenting and trying out new styles. This is one I saw in a picture book today and I was figuring it out here. (Not exactly. But close.) Pencil + cut outs + watercolour. The girl on the left is wearing a shirt with Ollie's (my daughter's) handwriting on it. They are gibberish letters.

greendot dinner

Marker + watercolours. The Mayo yoghurt soya burger there was delicious.


I remember drawing this at a UCC coffee counter inside Isetan at Westgate mall. Drawn with a pencil and painted with poster colour that I brought around in small Muji airtight containers.
