From the Moleskine

Caution: Some art geekery follows.

A spread from my pocket sketchbook. I've been drawing frames and coming up with ways to fill them, without any preliminary pencil lines. I've also attempted to make my pen and ink lines more sketchy. I simply take a trusty Pilot V5 and attack the paper. I realize using a V5 isn't exactly the most artsy way of doing things. I should use my sketching pens or my fountain pen. But I don't. My Pilot is cheaper, I like the way it feels, and I don't have to worry about losing it or having it explode in my pocket. (Yes, I've had fountain pens do that to me. Don't ask why I ever thought to put a fountain pen in my pocket.)

I really like the guy on the wave. I don't know why, but I really love sketches. Maybe it's the spontaneity of it. It's just raw ability (of which I have none). I like.

I love this! Maybe it's my thing for cross hatching (that is what it's called, right?) or maybe it's that you did the scan of your full little book (sooooo awesome!) Either way, it looks really cool!

Love these, Sam. Well done! :) Hope all is well in your corner of the country!

I love these. I imagine I could spend hours looking through your sketchbook and loving every minute of it.

I like how you can do all this with a pen... That is talent right there.
