thank you enrico for making me do this. had fab time.

waterbrushes are best invention for drawing with since computers.
for anyone wary/jaded with watercolour: this takes all the hassle out of it. selfrinsing! permanently perfect pointed soft brush! no jars!

with new sketchbook (NB should be watercolourpaper and flat-bound) and this pen, sketchcrawling is addictive.

here are 2 of least dreadful (local shop, nice new bldg by FutureSystems in town). have not mastered waterbrush at all but looking forward to sketching again in a week or so.

These drawings are delightful, Janbow.
The figures are all very appealing.
I particularly like the contrast on the biker.

Great sketch. Is that a photo of your sketch? I like how the hat is blurred, it gives a sense of motion.

ho, no it's a scan of sketch - wire binding didn't help. not supposed to be out of focus!

but thank you all for kind words :)

The out of focus head & legs kinda ends to e appeal...made it look even more like he was on a move :D
