Posca Markers Gas Station

I’ve filled my car up at this gas station for 13 years: it’s a crazy visual overload of signs and bright colors and I’ve thought to sketch it often but never have. Until last week, when I grabbed a handful of Posca markers and headed down.

Here is everything I ended up using: a waterbrush filled with black ink, a bunch of Posca markers and then some other markers for colors I didn’t have Poscas for. Also, not pictured here, a thinner white Posca marker for the whites on this piece.

I am really attracted to this sort of visual urban noise. More like a cacophony, perhaps. Letting you feel the chaos while still reading the scene is a challenge I enjoy tackling. And these markers seem like the right medium for it in their graffiti-like feel.
