Italy travel comics

Share      

It’s been 3 years since the hubbahubba and I took a long vacation. To celebrate his official move to working full-time for Everyday Love Art (woohoo!) AND completing the thumbnails for Pashmina (it took a year!) we decided to tour Italy. He’s 3/4 Italian and Italy has always be high on both of our lists to visit! While we were traveling around I drew a few comics to capture some of our experiences.

sleeplessflight

We took 2 flights to get to Rome and immediately boarded a train to Florence. Neither of us can sleep well on planes.

buongiorno

The first morning was magical as we woke to the bells of the Duomo in Florence.

But Florence wasn’t kind to us. Jet lagged, we created mosquito gut masterpieces at 3am instead of sleeping or snuggling.

foccaciaandyou

Finally adjusted to the time, we toured Genoa. With a piece of foccacia, cobble stone streets and his hand in mine we both fell in love with Italy.

makepasta

We spent a good portion of our time in Cinque Terre. Every vista and meal was a delight. I decided that if hubbahubba REALLY loved me he would learn how to make pansotti (and all pastas) ^_^

trenitalia

I enjoyed taking the train from city to city, drawing and writing postcards.

Another 2 flights home, nursing a cold and jet lagged I was so tired. I needed to brush my teeth before sleeping but couldn’t find the energy… ^_^

Overall our trip was wonderful. Sometimes when we plan things into 2016 it feels very overwhelming – it was so nice to stop, take a break and enjoy the simple things in life.

I hope you’re having a happy Monday!

fluffy friend and brush pen tips

Share      

fluffyfriend This is one of my recent evening brush pen sketches. In art school I was incredibly uncomfortable with the brush pen – it was a challenge. After years of practice drawing WITHOUT it I have a much better feel for it. Why? Because I have put in hours and hours of drawing time to understand form, shape and my own limitations (which are many). I start with a loose drawing in color pencil (usually whichever pencil is closest and sharpened, in this case it’s orange) and after I have the sketch, I bring out the brush pen. I ink over the lines as confidently as possible. The most important piece of this, which I didn’t understand before, is to commit. Once I put the ink down I cannot go back. I must be sure. I try not to lift the pen, to make solid, fluid lines. Some artists remain sketchy and loose at the ink stage, which is achieves another lovely look. I like the clear, solid lines so I attempt that. My favorite part of the process are the accents that appear due to the brush and paper texture. When I push down to make a thicker line, or pull back for a thinner line, the organic cracking and grain is so visually pleasing! I have more brush pen sketches on my Facebook page ^_^ Have a happy Friday!

I’ve been very inspired by comic artists recently. I love both the comic artists who take their time to create amazing full-color works and those who do quick day-of thoughts! I’ve been focused on Pashmina, producing 10-12 thumb nailed pages a week, so I created this comic in a free 30 minutes. I hope you enjoy it and happy holi! ^_^
