Door into Summer


Ballpoint pen study, approx. 30 minutes? I don't know, I wasn't keeping track!

Man, if there's anybody who's got the right idea, it's this cat... This is what I want to do all summer: draw, catch up on my reading, draw, catch up on some games that are still unfinished, draw, do some illustration work for a competition, work on a comic, and some more drawing on top of it. Oh, yeah, and fix my damn sleep schedule; these last two semesters screwed me up major.

Anyway, just talking about the drawing for a bit: I love this ballpoint pen I've been using. What it lacks in variation of thick to thin lines, it makes up for with a great range of value that I can't get with the regular ink pens I use. Now I don't have to just cross-hatch! I'm definitely going to try to get a few packs of these before heading back to school... but that's months off and I really don't want to think about right now. It's freakin' SUMMER. No more classes, books or dirty looks for a few months. A more accurate version would be: No more classes, last minute projects and people staring at me for 10 minutes during critiques.

More drawings, sketchbook stuff, prints, whatever I have to come... when I feel like it. Give me a break, it's FREAKING SUMMER.
