Illustration Friday : RUN

They plague us all....

What Kind of Pens Do I Use?

I am often asked what kind of pens I use -
I use TRIA LETRASET PENS in the PANTONE colours - they have 3 tips on each pen, and nothing compares to their intensity!

They are available at Dick Blick online - I have a link to them on my sidebar.
Someday, I will have one in every shade.....

Mail Art Postcard Side 2


Mail Art Postcard Side 2, originally uploaded by sapphire252.

This is for a mail art swap. Just micron pens and some markers. It took me 2 hours, but I think it was worthwhile!
Designs for this are in my MORE DELIGHTFUL DOODLES class.

Once this guy is fired and done, I am going to place him up on the brick wall in my backyard....

When you can't find the gargoyles you like for your yard, just make 'em!

I have made this out of clay, to hang in my garden. It still needs to be fired - just made today - I will try to remember to post a photo when it is done...

Okay, so the Illustration Friday subject was "CLEAN". I took a look around, and this is what came to mind. Don't judge me.
