Sketch 298

April 2, 2021
Girl with a fish peeks around a brick wall.

Why is she holding a fish? Why is there a giant X on the wall? What is she looking at? Excellent and fair questions, all of them. You can’t see me, but I’m shrugging very animatedly at your queries.

Woman looking surprised saying what?

You know what!


Sketch 296

March 15, 2021
Woman and man walk through gigantic mushrooms, while strange eyes stare at them from the darkness.

Strange things are a foot. Possibly several feet. Definitely several things. Yikes!

Angry chef pulling up her sleeve, prepping for a fight.

Cruisin’ fer a bruisin’!

Woman angry listening to man.

Please shut up. Please shut up. Please shut up.

Also – trying out a new brush tonight, a Raphael 8404 #1. I was looking for a Winsor & Newton Series 7 #2, but my local shop didn’t have any Series 7 at all. I heard good things about the Raphaels, and I took a chance that the #1 is similar in size to the W&N #2. It’s a nice brush – it hold lots of ink, and also creates nice dry brush lines, which I really like.
