Thing in watercolour pencil, inktense, metallic watercolour, and pen & ink

And the kitchen sink, I suppose.

This week's Illustration Friday prompt is creature, and this is...


Well, to be honest, I just turned on the internet radio and freestyled it. Considering the period of music I'm listening to, it could be a transferred hallucination, I suppose.

As usual, my cheap scanner's lost the wash in the background. That totally makes no difference this time, though.

I bet that the scanner's disappointed.

The sad thing is, this is what's finished my current sketchbook. The great thing is, I've finished my current sketchbook. That hardly ever happens.

Moustache in pen & ink

This week's Illustration Friday prompt is moustache.

Professor Arboreous had just started to realise that his dendritic studies might be affecting other parts of his life...


Ok, this is silly, but it's been a while since I did any random branching so I figured what the heck. I'd like to say that branching -- which is something of a life-long obsession -- is meditative for me, but I have too much trouble focussing on anything for too long to ever hit meditative. I suppose it's just a way to let my hand do something while I'm thinking of other things. In other words, you generally find a lot of branching doodles in my notebook after a staff meeting.

This, by the way, is the longest period at one sitting that I've managed to use a pen since I screwed up my wrist months ago. Still very shaky and I'm sore now, but it's a start at least.
