ink and water sketches




I felt unproductive while watching TV, so every so often I would pause what I was watching (The Wire, season 2 !) and do a quick sketch of who was onscreen. These are very quick messy sketches done with a rotring fountain pen. I noticed this pen smudged a lot when in contact with water so I experimented with using a wet brush over the drawings. I think some of them turned out quite interesting.
