belated sketchbook pages

Leuchtturm 2010 no. 2 sketches part 2
i meant to post these a couple weeks ago, but my hands were dirty with clay.
while waiting for my 3d pieces to dry,
i did some sketches, paintings, and drawings in the 2d world as well.

i've reached to about half of my leuchtturm sketchbook #2 now,
and here are some of the pages from 2/16-3/29 :

  1. Truly beautiful. I'd love to hear about your process and when/why you decide to overlay a new face in a different color. Is it for texture, to save space, to refine and perfect/right a mistake?

    Thank you for sharing! I adore seeing your sketches!

  5. ahhh thank you so much!!

    @kendralyris i don't really think much when i'm sketching, it's more of a stream of (sub)consciousness thing.
    if i actually stopped and thought about it, i guess multiple faces just show different thoughts/personalities/minds we have inside...
    or something in that line if that makes sense.

  6. @stella :: Perfect sense! It reads, at times, like that split-second change in emotion that can show on someone's face. Love it.

  9. The montage of faces are so wonderful... I"m with jaw agape. You've inspired me to start being better about using my moleskines more often... I need it to be attached to me. May I ask what inks you use? I am impressed by the lack of smearing particularly with the beautiful use of red over black!

  10. great work, thanks for posting your moleskin, love seeing artists raw thots.

  11. thanks so much for your kind thoughts.

    @sMacThoughts : the red/pink markers do make the black ink bleed a bit, just not too much. this is a leuchtturm sketchbook, not moleskine, so it absorbs the ink more which helps.
    the black part is either a pentel brush pen or just a ball point (that won't bleed).
    thank you so much!!
