new sketchbook

Leuchtturm 2010 no. 2
i've been sketching in sporadic consistency (if that makes sense) in my 2nd leuchtturm sketchbook.
the leuchtturms consist of thinner pages than moleskines,
which, for me, is better for sketching/drawing sans any paint.
there's something i like about the tactility and translucency...

unfortunately the second one i bought has some kind of coating
on the paper, so it doesn't absorb the ink like the old one. :/

if these seem redundant, that's because my thoughts have been overlapping lately.
pages from around jan 26th through feb 13th :

  1. These are fabulous! I really like the page "Things that grow on your head". I'm drawn to the soft expressions within the intensity of the red ink for some reason. Thanks for continuing to share your sketches!

  2. Such lovely brush-pen textures. I think my favorites are the girls that seem to come out of the shadow. Something mysterious and a little melancholy about them. Oh, and I also kinda love the poopy pen doodle. :P

  9. Stella, I hope to one day be as good as you are!!!
    I will try... only 3 more years, then bye bye Mass Art.
    I tried finding an address for you once, to send you a (hand written) letter, but I failed... I'll try again... do you have a fan mail P.O. Box by chance, or a place where my letter could get to you safely?
    Best,
