Illustration: ‘Meeting’

Sketched one four men’s meeting, I wanted to create a 3D effect and same time to reach out a situation where showed each attendee talking and listening. Huh!… don’t know how came this idea- the imagination and the art are infinite 🙂 .

Also, I want to participate to the #artistsupportpledge, “Support artists during lockdown!” So that if indeed works as intended, my work will be identified on Twitter with the hashtag #artistsupportpledge .

Illustration: Light-Dark study

Keeping on with the same line of sketching projects, just finnished another study of light and dark, contrast, shading, textures. Used white ink pen only for the keyhole, wanted to enhance the light intensity. In rest, sketched with a single white pencil, varying the textures and strokes directions.

Illustration: Still life

Just feeling inspired today and taken the morning time to crop this ‘still life’. Idea and topic to be resumed, I think I need some complementary media to better perform in light-shade realm.

Instead of worrying about you cannot control, shift your energy to what you can create.

Illustration: Jellyfish

Tried this out. White pen, white and silver inkpen’s. I’m not 100% at peace with the result. At the end it is an experience, understanding how pens interact with textured paper, for a such topic and desired visual effect.

Illustration: Night Sky

Last nights were chilly and starry. Yet, capricious season. And me, longing for the seas, summer night sky.

Got this, a fantesy- Orion running after Virgo. Endlessly running, as long as the sky lasts.
