I bought more art supplies on the way home today!

  A larger sketch pad for working with water and marker. A sepia (!!!!!) fine liner which I predict I will be seriously in love with. Two more copics, since I left my entire collection of markers at home (these two are "pale fruit pink" and "pale blue grey". For skin and metal respectively.) The five warm, peachy colours above that are brush markers I've never tried before that are apparently water soluble in the same way as my current watercolour crayons, so I'm going to give them a try. If they work out then I'll have five extra much-needed skin tone shades.

  And of course, I am now officially the coolest person ever with my Yatterman shitajiki. Okay, it was an impulse buy. I saw it and was like "YES I TOTALLY NEED YATTERMAN TO PROTECT THE PAGE BELOW THE ONE I AM WORKING ON FROM INK BLEEDTHROUGH." XD

I will post up some of the stuff I've been doing on Tegaki E in a little bit, but first have some fluff (otherwise known as not proper pictures of art, but pictures of me doing art) until I buy a scanner. If my plans for tomorrow fall through because it's raining, I'll see what I can do about getting one of those then.. Because I am in love with those watercolours I bought, and taking photos of them just doesn't convey the subtlety of the colour at all.

For now! This is May 4th's workspace:

So, I have my entertainment - otherwise known as season 2 of Bad Girls, disc 1. I have DW up on screen, as you can see! I have my art supplies to my left, though they're currently buried beneath the watercolour set and you can't see how many pens I've "borrowed" from work. There's a bottle of coke zero there, since I have yet today to make a cup of coffee. My phone is next to it - yeah, that blank black brick :D Thennn what's this we have here? Work in progress? Let's take a sneaky closer look....


Ooh! This is why I want a scanner.

It's been a long time since I worked much with natural media. Or if I'm honest, it's been a long time since I drew much of anything at all.. But that hasn't diminished my love for the materials themselves, and I still salivate when I get let loose in a stationary shop... As this ¥7,000 haul of pretty colours testifies to!


Let's hope I have lots of pretty things to show for it, soon. :)
