Recent Sketches

I've been getting encouragement from a variety of people to focus more on ink sketches rather than pencil, it helps me to work quickly and to not get too obsessed with shading or details at the beginning. Ink also helps squash perfectionism... just like in life, when you make a mistake, you can't erase it. The master artist can take those mistakes and incorporate them into something awesome.

Speaking of awesome ink drawings... check out these travel sketches by Dice Tsutsumi.

I think I would have that expression too if I was a chubby elephant poolside.
