Yesterday afternoon brought an adventure to the Michigan State Fair. Azucena and myself had it in mind to sketch us some livestock. Sort of Dr. Sketchy without the costume changes, although the models tend to move around a bit more. But where Dr. Sketchy usually offers the opportunity to have a pint of beer with my drawing, nothing...and I mean nothing...beats the bottomless glass of chocolate milk at the cow pavilion.
Before reaching the fairgrounds we stopped at the art supply store. I wanted to get some kind of water colors to work with. I found a really cool little kit about the size of a deck of cards. It came with a neat little brush that had a water reservoir in it, so I didn't need to carry a little cup of water or anything. It's made by Koi Watercolors. I really like little compact things like that. I'll be using that at the next Dr. Sketchy.
The brush pen I use (thanks to Rob Ullman) is somewhat similar in that it has a reservoir for the ink and doesn't require that you dip it in a bottle every few strokes. Pentel makes it. The ink is almost kind of waterproof. Here are the results:
