Dear Ken,Have just discovered your amazing blog. What wonderful sketches!I've had a brief look through your Blog and see you use Tombow pens. Can I ask what size of notebook you use and type of paper?And the black marker..waterproof I guess.( I ask because I spend my life almost starting trying to sketch and never getting started...any hints about how to get over that hurdle would be gratefully received)
Hi James,I don't use Tombow pens all that much actually though I'd like to experiment more with them. I generally use a 12 color Windsor and Newton watercolor set with a Niji waterbrush. Almost all of my penwork is with a Uniball vision fine pen although I enjoyed experimenting with the Kuretake on the Japan drawings.I use the Handbook Journal (5x8 portrait)mostly and just started using a new Handbook 8x10 with watercolor paper. I also use the Moleskines but wish they would make a 5x8 portrait with watercolor paper.Good luck sketching! Stay in touch - I look forward to being inspired by your sketching blog someday!
Thanks Ken.Who knows...but somehow I doubt it!James
