Finally completed this piece last night. I was surprised at how quick it really went. This new pen I bought is partly to blame. It’s a pentel brush pen that is absolutely ingenious. Typically when I do ink pieces like this, I’m using a brush and india ink. The pen lets me have the same effect but now I can work on any ink work anywhere. A good example of this is the fact that I worked on most of this at the beach. I had a few almost mix ups though when the wind gusted up and my paper wanted to attempt an escape. My pen rubbed against the paper thankfully in areas that were going to get filled in anyways but I can only imagine how I’d react if I accidentally left a huge smudge on her cheek or something. Agh. I wouldn’t be too pretty haha.

Playing around with pattern and ink and watercolor. This was done on canvas which isn’t my top choice. I bought some watercolor canvas because I didn’t believe it would work. Surprisingly enough it did. Don’t mind the symbol on his forehead, he doesn’t have the greatest of intentions.
On a side note, my book 100 Cats Who Changed History came in the mail yesterday. I’ve noticed that there’s a very large pattern of male artists and writers with cats. Hah!
