Evanston frm mrkt

Three blocks from my home, regional farmers bring the fruits of land and labor, and largely organic. I’m totally digging the wide selection of greens and heirloom tomatoes. Had to pull out the full spectrum for this drawing and to keep it clear and feature that color, I used a M nib Dark Sepia Pitt Pen do draw the outlines. More of a “brittle” conture approach than the dark and varied line work that brush nibs and B nib fountain pens give me.

Burning thru my reserves of ledger books but that is not all bad. I’ve been really leaning on Pitt Pens and fountain pens and it might prove interesting if not valuable to make a concerted return to graphite.

In between getting advice on my I-pod and computers at the Apple Store by the North & Clybourne stop and heading to a catering gig, I sat down in the Plaza by the Apple Store/N&C Red Line stop to cop a sketch of this smartly attired dude coolin’ his cowboy boot clad heels. Pitt Pens, Namiki Falcon, and grease pencil in a toned Strathmore sketchbook.

Good news at last. Upgraded the camera I use to take pics of my drawings which will mean higher res. For the last year and a half, perhaps more, since my scanner went ka-blooey, I’ve been photographing the drawings with a an i-Pod that while convenient was low res and so the drawings came out a touch fuzzy. Better definition will mean sharper, prettier images with more information so you can better evaluate the tools at work and the paper in use. It’s been too long in coming and I do apologize. I’ll replace the above image of Franz Spohn drawing soon as the new camera is all set up.

Came upon Florika on the way to a catering job in the Loop. About 45 minutes, Pitt Pens, including the Pitt White, and a touch of grease pencil on Strathmore toned paper.
