Such a pretty tart, but then you think about it as food and wonder—who wants to be having delicate refreshments at The Plaza, sipping tea in Wedgwood…and then pick up a cherry and spit the pit out? Blair Waldorf would never approve!

Anyone else taking Yuko Shimizu‘s Skillshare inking class? She just does a really rough pencil sketch and then jumps right in with her inks! She stresses using real brushes instead of brush pens, but I already had my Pentel on hand and was feeling impatient. I can already see one of the drawbacks that she mentioned, though—pretty much every stroke comes out 100% black, while with her brushes you can get a great dry brush line as well.

I picked up this Pocket Brush Pen by Pentel the other day, as it came highly recommended by the fellows at Accent Arts. It threw me off in the beginning, because the brush tip is much squishier than the brush-tip pens I’d been used to by Tombow, since it’s actually got bristles like a brush (imagine that!). It’s a little scary at first, because it goes from thin to thick with the slightest touch, but it also makes much more room for happy accidents.
Here’s to more accidents.
