Brush and Ink Meanderings
Posted at 12:05 PM


Got to messing around with some ink and a brush over the weekend. Been a long time. I want to get back into drawing. Painting too. I miss that stuff.

“Gary, Aaron and a Capo.”

Nice line work on this one. What Photoshop filter is that, “Dry Brush” or “Ink Outlines?” I went junkin’ this weekend and got some old Mechanix and Outdoorsman-type magazines, lots of great drawings, 2-color work and hand-drawn type in there.

Gary’s little arm looks gimpy. Remember, Winsor Newton Series 7 brushes are said to be the best for ink work, although I do not personally endorse squirrel and fox tail for the use of drawing.

Does Gary have Mange or Rabies?

I’ll be considered a heathen for this, but I ditched my Winsor Newton Series 7 and my Pigma brush pens six months ago for my wacom. Everything on my site was done with it and I can tell no discernable difference between my traditional doodles and my digital.

Windsor and Blah blah blah.

A good artist can make magic with his hands, not his tools.

I’ll draw everything with a wire-spined aquarium brush.

Oh yeah? Well… I make everything with bundles of stem cells craftily arranged to form an organic uber brush.
