Blue Burst

I like these new Micron pens! The colors are terrific and the ink is very easy to use: intense colors with no bleeding or smudging. And they seem to last a long time. 

Drawing is so much more fun when the tools work well.

Quite the jumble! I thought about calling it highways or spaghetti or something, but thicket works as well.

This one is black ink on a cream-colored paper. The black spaces aren't meant to be colored in fully; they're meant to have little open spots. Keeps up the jumbled theme.

Spotted Leaves


Another purple doodle. I like purple! Very simple leaf shapes against a spotted background.
I thought about filling in the leaves with a pattern, but I like the simple shapes just as they are.

Stones Throw


A change from our alphabet letters. This one is done with a dark purple ink instead of black and looks like lots of pebbles.

Letter L

Full of swoops and swirls and fancy designs, this letter L is anything but melting into the background!

Letter K

Compared to the letter L yesterday that had so much depth, this letter K seems to blend into the background.

Letter J


A capital letter J, done with contour lines inside and out. I like the depth that the lines give it.

Letter i

A lowercase letter i. It looks something like a butterfly, though I wasn't thinking of butterflies while I was drawing it. I was thinking of flowers. Close enough, I guess. :)

Letter H

The straight lines in letters give me fits. I'm more comfortable with curved lines. However, I rather like this one -- especially the wiry looking designs on the sides.

Letter G

Back to our alphabet series! Black ink on white bristol stock. It's similar in feel to the letter e from earlier.
