Tech Pens + Bobby Pins

I've had this class on my to-do list for 47 years, so I'm glad to have finally watched it and taken on the project! I made a big list of my supplies and narrowed it down to:

  • Drawing Tools (#2 pencil, blackwing pencil, pilot precise v5)
  • Eraser
  • Paintbrush
  • Paint tubes
  • My trusty hair tie and bobby pins
  • All nestled on top of a taped down piece of paper (my setup as of late)


After a few thumbnail sketches I did bigger, looser sketches with a pen and tracing paper to nail down the composition. I then redrew some of the elements a little neater, and started making my library of textures (so fun making a FUNCTIONAL mess). My favorite is the texture I made for the tape, and the little pencil shavings (I kept trying to sweep them off my page).

I also decided that my colors would be yellow, black, and white, with tints of yellow where necessary



So happy with the result. Thanks for the great class, Tom!
