A commitment to daily drawing from life (six years so far…) often means relying on late night selfies. Here’s the latest collection of around fifty (!), with the usual apology for the severe/odd/blank expressions. The first batch were all done in my small Muji book, and almost all in grey Document ink using a Sailor fude pen, spot the one drawn ‘blind’. The second batch were done in a bigger book using all sorts.
And as a special festive bonus these are followed by 100 previous attempts from the past few years. There’s probably a very dull animation lurking in all these frames…
Daily sketches of our six months old/young Schnoodle puppy Mo; it took a while to be able to see the key contour lines of her body within the fluffy coat! Here she’s mostly dozing, with additional horses, camels, loyal servants, passers-by and a vulture for variety… All sketched in a small Muji book, using grey Document ink in a Sailor 40 degree fude pen.
