mmm… coffee.

Moleskine Sketchbook, Ink, Pencil crayon

Finally, an update! HOORAY!

Sorry, I haven’t updated since… February 2009… wow, that’s almost a year ago.  But I have good reasons for my absence.   I finally learned to drive, I got a new job, new car, new laptop, new haircut… many things! 2009 was a pretty busy year for me.  Now I’m back, hopefully this time I will update a lot more often.

As for the drawing above, it’s one of the drawings that I did for the Moleskine exchange that my cousin and I are doing. I wanted this Tim Horton’s cup drawing to have that same style as the one I did for the Second Cup drawing.  I don’t know what’s with me with coffee cups lately, but it turned out pretty well, don’t ya think?

I’ll be posting up some more scans of my drawings from the Moleskine exchange on my next post.  It will just be my drawings for now though. But maybe in the future, when it is all done, we’ll have all the pages put up for everyone to see.

I love my Reese Peanut Buttercups!

Ru Journal. Pencil Crayon and Ink.

I’ve only liked two kinds of chocolate bars, Reese and Oh! Henry.  Those were the only chocolate bars I ever reached for when I have a chocolate craving or when I needed an energy boost.  Also, I think it’s the biggest reason why I gained an extra 10lbs this year. haha.

The drawing was done using ink and pencil crayon using the continuous line technique.  If you do not know how or what a continuous line technique is it’s basically drawing without taking your pencil/pen away from the paper.

It’s really fun to do because it’s a great drawing exercise and you don’t have to make the drawing so perfect . Plus it looks great at the end.

Back to sketching!

Second Cup Sketch, 4 1/8″ x 5 3/4″, Ru Journal.

Okay, so… today, I promised myself that I wouldn’t avoid my sketchbook any longer. I’ve been making WAY too many excuses not to sit down and draw something.

This sketchbook that I bought (well, it’s really meant as a journal) back in March, I’ve only filled up three pages over the past few months. Sad ain’t it? But starting today, I’ll be sketching out like crazy! Even if I can’t think of anything to draw, I will draw something!

The Ru Journal is by Xonex, it’s an A6 Blank Journal, 4 1/8″ x 5 3/4″, embossed Italian Paper, Latex infused for durability, 128 acid-free pages, elastic closure, and hidden storage pouch. I bought it at Chapters for around $10.00 CDN. It may not be a Moleskine, but I find it to be just as good for sketching. I also have another Ru Journal which I use for keeping notes. Highly Recommended! =)

UPDATE: I put a new image of the drawing. I finally have access to a scanner so now it looks a lot better! =)

Another Blizzard!!!

Wow, I can’t believe the amount of blizzards we’ve had in one month. This one started yesterday and hasn’t stopped. I heard that it will get even worse tomorrow with winds gusting up to 90 km/h. Insane! We closed the store today at 3:00 because the blizzard was getting worse. Right now the winds are going at 60km/h gusting to 80. I took a picture outside my window this morning.


You can barely see the buildings! Anyways, I just finished a new drawing a few days ago, for practice, mostly. The watercolor tubes are Winsor & Newton that I purchased on Ebay a few months ago (about 51 of em’!). I took several pictures of the drawing at different stages from the initial sketch to the the finished drawing. All done in PrismaColor pencils.
