catfishbatshark thing

It's an underwater creature I'm working on for a short sequential story. I'll probably do some color studies of it and think of a better name.

simple pleasures

It's nice having green tea and a chocolate crossiant in the morning.

push the button

People only need to push the button once, but everyone keeps pressing the button as if the signal will turn faster. Tried more dry brushing with the sumi pen for texture.

test heads

I like using the convenience of a brush pen, but I can't get consistent dry brush strokes. Maybe it's the synthetic hairs? Here are some test heads.

fiddling faun

I was watching the duo Caliban performing some lively Celtic music. I came up with this faun, but he's a lot calmer than the fiddler Michael. The hand sketches were the various positions on the fiddle. Caliban performed an old song from the 16th century. Lief contested that the song had three qualities (sex, violence, and holidays) that made it endure the centuries. The name of it escapes me.
