Retro Sketch

These are from a sketchbook back in 1999. In order to enable a bit of creative risk taking, I splattered colored ink all over the inside cover, setting an anti-perfectionist tone to the sketchbook. Everything on the first page of the sketchbook (the second page shown below), was done with a fountain pen loaded with sepia ink. I was working at art supply stores at the time, and I specialized in fountain pens, so naturally, they became my drawing tools. The sepia ink was inspired by original sketches done by Salvador Dali rendered in the very same ink, which I had seen at a gallery down in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
