It's been a busy few months leading up to the new year. Lots of work commitments. No holidays [insert sad face]. But since Inktober 2017, I've been committing to more art study and daily sketches. Even if it's nonsense.
Building on visual memory, trying new styles, improving on weak areas ... and publishing them. Albeit, on Instagram. Making it public nonetheless. So, starting a piece, finishing it and moving on.
I have the tendency to get bogged down with details and fixing imperfections. So this has been good exercise. Happy with the results and will keep going.
In late December, I accepted an invitation to go hiking/rock climbing at Pages Pinnacle. Infamously known for its uncomfortable trek up to the crag. It's like climbing a broken escalator for an hour with 10kg on your back.
Rather than post pics of the hike, I decided to sketch the ordeal and stick a few speech bubbles for added value.
Trust india ink and micron pens on paper.
