Dip pen with Diamine Terracotta and Noodlers black ink in 8 x 8 ” HAndbook w/c sketchbook
This is my first post using apps on my iPhone! I’m practicing the new “mobile me” in preparation for the trip to Italy in 1 1/2 weeks. You may have noticed that the appearance of the blog has changed recently. That is also so it will be smart phone mobile friendly (with “fluid layout”). I have a little gorilla pod to set the iPhone on and a fold-up wireless keyboard as new toys to make this possible. Here’s what it looks like.
Meanwhile, in an effort to keep sketching even while at home, I hunt down my son(s) who, bless their dear hearts, are willing to let me sit and stare at them. With Ben I always get the finger picking guitar music as an accompaniment, a sort of icing on the cake, both visually and auditorily.

Andrew, who is no longer home, likes to do crosswords at breakfast, like his mother. Here I’m practicing quick gesture drawing, which I like a whole lot better than my labored drawings, but only one out many turn out this good. Believe me, you don’t see the others!
