As this country seems to go completely crazy (and I’m not just talking Covid here) , I turn to home and to the kids in my sketches to find some sense of sanity. The everyday feels sane, and the kids losing themselves in their books, games and music is what I sketch.
The new year started with this simple line sketch in two colored inks and a bamboo pen. I love how the two colors mix for whole range of other colors.
This is a sketch of the kids waiting to start a board game. It’s strange to play a game called Pandemic right now.
This last sketch is Nishant at piano practice. When I settled down on the floor next to him to sketch, I asked how much longer he was going to practicing. “10 minutes” he said, so I knew how long I had for my sketch. Bamboo reed pen and iron oxide ink.
What are you sketching a lot of right now? Is it different from what you sketched pre-pandemic?
