Just a sketch. I sent it to a friend to mess with. I'll post the result.

This is just a sketch I did with my new brush pen. It's funny how it seems like it fixes all the problems with brush and ink, yet I've noticed it still acts like a sharpie in some ways. I really do like it.

Also, this is an update to the first thing I posted to this thread. I worked on it with my buddy Tyson. We hope to screen print it and use it for an Of Montreal show sometime, but we have to wait until they come around our way again.

I dig it too. What kind of pen is it? I have a pen with japanese markings on it and a nice wood grain pattern. But someone gave it to me and I don't know where to get more.

It's called a Pigma Brush. The company that makes it is called Sakura. It says that it's made in Japan. I just got it at the local craft shop. I want to see if I can buy one with a refillable ink cartridge.

I just did this ink drawing for IllustrationFriday.com. The theme is "quiet".
I am trying to do better with the blacks to move the eye around and create a little clarity. Hope you like it.
