Cafe sketching is a very strange art. It allows you to eavesdrop and observe and make your up your own little stories about people. This woman was on (most likely) an internet date and for the first half of the date she was very cold and standoffish. The guy, however, who looked like a real life Luigi, must've said something that peaked her interest because she was all ears for the rest of the night.

Wonder what he said.

Not too much to add today. Happy Holidays everyone! I'll be back with a new post soon. In colour even!

Jane Bennet is a sweet girl

And this girl totally reminded me of her. Coloured cafe sketch!

I've had a few people ask me about the pencils I use to draw with so I'm making a post dedicated to that.

These are my primary weapon, red ticonderoga pencils. I used to use the carmine red Prismacolours but these are just softer and slide easier along the page. You can find them in almost any office supply store and even Wal-Mart in Canada carries them. I've actually had more trouble locating them in art stores than not.

Usually you can find them in a pack of 12 and they'll last you a good while. My roomate at the time had brought me home a pack once from the Sheridan Bookstore and I haven't looked back since.

Since I'm at it I'll also show you the sketchbook I exclusively draw in.

These guys, for me, are the holy grail of sketchbooks. I have a stock pile of them.

I wasn't joking :) I've been using them since 2007 and despite trying a plethora of other sketchbooks, I keep coming back to these. All mine are the 8x10 format. I suggest you give them a try, especially if you live in the states because as far as I can tell your best bet for getting them is ordering them online at Dick Blick

Cheers everyone! Thanks for the excellent comments so far!

Some cafe sketching!

Normally I'd post my cafe sketches here (if at all), but today I'll update to my main blog :)

Some sirens! We'll see if and when I get around to colouring them :)

Some are repeats because I was working on two different files. I really should clean some of these guys up, eh?

My friend Leah a la OH SO AWESOME Gravity Falls. More of these to come. No, unfortunately, I'm not working on the show. Wish I was though!

‘Hey umbrella, you remember when that used to be us?’
‘Yeah, those were good times.’

It was raining all day :)

Bramble shark! These guys are actually covered in a bit of a strange spikeyness not unlike a dragonfruit. Forgive me if this offends anyone, but this shark is apparently slow and fairly docile, so it just makes sense he'd be the cute chubby kid.

No colour tonight I'm afraid, maybe a little later down the line!

Alright guys! Kicking off the fantastic SHARK WEEK with the Ocean Whitetip!

Now, my fellow followers, shout out your favourite shark and I’ll draw him/her along with the six more that will celebrate this awesome week!
