More March Sketches and a Double Sketchbook

Page 06b detail.

These are from the same sketchbook as the last posting, but it is a twofold sketchbook: It is half made from very bright, almost blueish DorĂ©e 200 drawing paper, whose color I love, which is a good paper for dry media, and I have a 50 m roll lying around under my desk which will […]

Lots of People on Public Transport in January

A Lot of People on Public Transport

I’ve been looking for a way to make my public transport drawings ‘exhibitable’, take them out o sketchbooks somehow, mostly by using folded single sheets of different sizes, like here. This is another attempt, not just putting the people on a single sheet, but trying to convey the feeling of looking through a whole sketchbook, […]

The Pleasure of Making a Mess


I have been experimenting with ink washes (brushing over ink lines with water) for some weeks, but it was only on Wednesday that the potential that lies in making a mess on a page started to dawn on me. Looking back, I usually prefer the dirtier of my drawings to the clean ones, smudged pencil […]

More Commuter Sketches

Sketch detail

I’m falling in love with pencil more and more every time I come back to it from another sketching tool, but I’m also continuing to experiment with the layering of lines of differing width and value. And there’s still such a long list of things I’d like to try… Some details:
