Buc inked

Since I've got this spankin' new scanner that's totally awesome I dug through some old stuff I never got around digitising. Here's something I made in earlier this year- They're drawn from photos I took last summer of Bucharest. Particularly like the second one.

Potted Bulbous Plant

Inked this potted bulbous plant (never got to ask the name) yesterday on the beautiful garden terrace at the Lillemarks. I think I blinked half the spring away, it's really summer now!

Spotted yesterday on the way to the art store under the bridge- look ma, I drew that! (Will try and take a better picture next time- taking photos under a dodgy bridge wasn't something to be done at a leisurely pace)

Sartorial People in Ink

Straight from the my uber new scanner! Itching for ink again, and this time I went for a binge on the Sartorialist for references of uber cool looking people in their awesome clothes. This is also one of the few times I roughed in a pencil sketch for the forms before going in with ink- as I felt like working on a tight drawing. (Like how I explained it to my boyfriend- it's like discipline training with weight-lifting.)
You can see how from the first man on the top left I was still timid and made inefficient lines- but progressively (at least I hope so) it gets better. But the bottom number 2 and 3 are reverse in order my inking.
