freelance illustrator: have pen, will travel

pens

The career was unavoidable, lead to me by an addiction to good pens.

Or pencils. And paper.

The “hand”, finish, edge, feel, hue, weight, texture. Uncapping a fountain pen and pressing the nib across the fresh free field of a sketch pad. Leaning my hand into the table as my fingers move a fine point pen into a fast soldiered-pattern of shading and details.

Scattered about my house, on each of my work spots, whether they be my hearty kitchen island, my glass-topped iron wrapped studio desk, my farmers table turned drafting and painting platform, are precious cups, mugs, glasses and crocks filled with even more precious & ready drawing instruments, eager to be chosen to skate along, trailed by an ink fable.
