Can you feel the heat? We're dancing at the party on Concrete Street! We got Artie on the left with a beer in his hand with a monster as his guest and to the right is Stan! With something disconcerting on the front of his shirt, too exerted to flirt with the girl by the curb - with her fresh pink dress and others dressed to impress, I like the one that's sitting shirtless with his belly well fed! We never said that this party'd ever come to an end - the sun is setting but no fretting we can do it again!
When I feel creative block I shut off technology, grab my Osprey Scholar and Sharp Kerry and just draw. There's something accessible about this pen and pencil combo that feels like freedom to me.
"Finding Love on Sunshine Street." I colored this pen & ink drawing using a Wacom pen & tablet with Rebelle by Escape Motions. This software simulates water on paper and reacts just like real paint!
he interesting textures, drips, and bleeds all happen naturally in Rebelle. Wet color washes into neighboring paint, plus it has "undo," layers, as well as .PSD support - critical features for illustration work since clients often request changes. Rebelle is amazing. Highly recommended.
Rebelle is available at http://www.escapemotions.com and v2.0 will be available later this month with all the new features!
Abhi at Osprey Pens suggested I credit Mark Bacas for the awesome flex stub grind on my Osprey Scholar. This narrow stub nib offers a lively bit of natural line variation to a sketch plus flex when I want it.
My friend, the responsible thing to do...
When buying a new pen is to sell another two.
So then my friend named "Harry M." bought one pen,
And he asked me to paint a Ghost-Terrarium for him.
That's when I took the new pen to a Moleskine page...
And drew a family of ten trapped in a ghost-shaped happy cage!
