In the INKed group on FaceBook, people have been sharing about their favourite white ink pen -- the made in Japan Uni-ball Signo UM-153. Fans said, "opaque ink, affordable." Sold. Mine arrived today in an Amazon parcel, along with black art tiles. I sat down at a coffee shop and drew for an hour. The chameleon above was the one I liked best after doodling on about four or five tiles.
It has been nearly four decades since George Lucas introduced movie audiences to Star Wars. I was still in elementary school when the first Star Wars was released (IV if you go with the renumbered version). As a parent of kids roughly the same age I was then, there was a fair bit of anticipation for the new film. Our family watched I to VI in the weeks ahead. Then we all piled into the car and headed to the theatre.
Conclusion: The Force Awakens(VII) does not disappoint.
This is playing with an ink pad and having a lot of fun. Who knew our digits could be so useful? The inspiration came from a set of notebooks that I received for Christmas (thanks, Anita!) featuring thumb print drawings by Marion Deuchar.
Playing a bit of catch up here. Work on a picture book has kept me busy drawing, but not for the blog. This is from a drawing not being used, but I really like how the crow turned out. The indigo and burnt umber still show up in the inking.
