If the fates will me to use pencil, I guess I’ll use pencil!
It took a year or so, and a lot frustration, but I’ve come to accept that I don’t know how to sketch with a pen anymore, at least not to my satisfaction. Pretty much anything decent I’ve done in recent memory has been with a pencil (and/or paint). I have no idea why this is so, but that’s just the way it is for now, and I’ll stop trying to make pens work for me. For now.
Here’s a few recent pencil sketches for you all:
I live in Brooklyn, NY, USA.
I’m a visual artist, illustrator, musician, composer, songwriter, web developer, web designer, writer, editor, organizer, instigator, and concerned neighbor. (Perhaps other things, too. Never hurts to ask.)
I still believe in e-mail and can be reached at email@example.com.
You can also Ask me anything (and get a public answer) via this site.
I serve as President of the wonderful global nonprofit Urban Sketchers.
The best way to see the largest quantity of my visual artwork is via Flickr, though pieces may show up here that don't show up there, and some pieces may show up elsewhere entirely.
Sometimes I act like I remember I have accounts on Twitter and Instagram.
If you like my artwork and you like Facebook, please be my fan there.
I shape sounds and interpret situations as a member of The Glass Bees.
In a past life, I co-founded and co-operated Vegan Drinks and SuperVegan. I’m still very much vegan, just not organzing anything on that front these days.
