Welcome! In addition to being deadline week (a.k.a. the end of the month), this also happens to be Spring Break week for our 17-year-old son. That means that Mama's got to get a bit creative to get her work done and still have time to do a few special things! Today we three took a road trip down to Green Bay to shop for school clothes. That's a two-hour drive, so of course I needed something to work on in the car! (I know that many of you really can't imagine living two hours from real malls, but it's not a bad thing, once you get used to it!)
In the car, I worked on a couple of rough pencil sketches for lettering projects (no inking done on those yet though), as well as a cacti piece for my landscapes portfolio. I took pictures of cacti near the Convention Center when I was in Phoenix in January for Creativation, so I took my iPad along to provide a reference picture. I finished a quick pencil sketch and got ready to ink my drawing when I realized that my go-to Copic Multiliner size, a 0.3 Multiliner, was probably going to be just a little too big for all of those cacti needles!
Thankfully, I had a Copic Fine Multiliner set on hand and found just what I needed in that pack--a Copic 0.03 Multiliner, with a tip about the width of a human hair. . .
Yes, that's tiny enough for even cactus needles! ;-} If you need a good fine point pen that's both Copic-proof and waterproof, I highly recommend the Copic Fine Multiliner set.
All in all, it was a productive day-especially for a road trip day. (And, yes, my son found some good deals on school clothes too!) Now I just need some TIME to finish my cacti. . .
Thank you for visiting!
P.S. I'll have cards to share again starting late Thursday night.
