Small Sketches

It’s been little sketches snatched between bigger projects for the last couple of weeks.

At a cafe, juxtaposing the art on the walls with the people in the cafe for a slightly surreal effect…

This kid reads Salt Fat Acid Heat¬†pretty regularly. Glazed Five Spice Chicken is a current favorite. Wendy MacNaughton‘s illustrations in the book are beautiful.

Thinking of changing out the ink in some of my pens to a non-black. I’m going with¬† DeAtrmamentis Document Ink Brown this time. I might put grey into another one but I might need to dilute it some, it’s much too close to black when you use a very wet nibbed pen.
