Starting a new triptych of ink drawings.
Finished one whole panel. This is the beginning. It is very meditative. More as it progresses. Each line requires that I refill the pen.

Several of my drawings on the studio wall.
These are the first of my drawings that have been directly been influenced by my #drawingaday project. I began drawing this series using transparent inks and large pens including bamboo pens.

Yesterday in my studio I took my eye off the worktable when the sound of the rain on the roof interrupted my concentration.

Tomorrow my studio is going to meet two cleaning mad women.

Just organizing a set of ink tools for a day of work in the studio.
I had decided that I would put some ink to work this day. I didn't know what would happen but I knew my bamboo pen would be where I would start.

It has been ages since I could open the doors to my studio while I worked. If it wasn't the heat it was the humidity. Tuesday it was perfect so the doors are open and this was my view. Looking forward to many more.

In the studio today. I have been working on these drawings on and off for a while now. They always seem almost there. I took six that I had that feel closest to finished and worked on them. This is a little detail shot.

I've started on a second drawing in this series. I was surprised by the ease with which I was able to draw the marks this time. Maybe it had something to do with the humidity. Maybe it was me.
I did the drawing taped to a cardboard surface. Love the result of the drawing transparency on the cardboard surface. It made me think about the presentation of the drawing in a way that is different from any way than I had originally imagined. The thing about the Yupo Synthetic paper is that it can come into contact with a surface like cardboard and it wouldn't damage the drawing.

I was working on my new sign for the studio. I designed the blade format for Steve our landlord. It gives each artist a place to do some decorative arts for their space. The bottom part of the sign has my studio number and I get to do what ever I want to the top part on each side of the blade. I decided that many of my drawings don't read well from a distance but that this new one, a direct result of my drawing-a-day series would work well. I'm hoping that I can have another that will work well for the opposite side.
