I bought a new pen today!

Work is slow right now. I bought a pen today, a FABER-CASTELL 1.0mm. This is the first drawing with it. I like these lazy days of summer, next week I go sailing for a week!

Robert Crumb

I'm reading about R.Crumbs life at the moment, I really admire the guy as a person and as for his work, it's really entertaining and his cross hatching is brilliant! I guess you could say, I'm a fan. Here's a link to his official family website.

Food for thought with Mark Ryden

I really like Mark Ryden's work, I see his paintings as a modern interpretation of the old fairy tradition. Children that are taken away by the fairies or the young fairies carrying out acts against the evil people of this world. Otherwise, I just like the way Mark sees the world, it's a pretty strange place from his perspective.

Is it possible to love a hooligan?

I drew this skinhead while not focusing too hard at work. It got me a thinking, can you love a hooligan? No, probably not but what about their kids, are they cute and loveable?

I'm learning cross hatching techniques right now...

I did a search on google for "cross hatch" and found this site. I like the way his lines follow the soft forms of the females body. I am going to use the technique and see what result it gives when I start drawing nudes again after the summer break.
