Just a little piece of art I drew in my new Moleskin recently. I'm still getting used to the really thin paper this company uses for their books. I only bought a Moleskin because the sketchbooks I normally buy haven't been in stock in the art store for a year. This is sad because Moleskins are ridiculously overpriced. Plus, the fact that a simple drawing felt tip pen bleeds through to the other side really bothers me. None of my other sketchbooks do that. So.... I now have to rethink the drawing tool I have to use.
In this case above, I was annoyed with the bleed through, so I painted two pages and then drew over them with my felt tipped Chinese pen. I will start fresh on the other pages. :-D
I think my Moleskin drawing tool will have to be a regular pen like this, sad, I know.
I LOVE drawing with felt tip pens, but alas, not this book. Oh well.
I'd be surprised if by the last page of my Moleskin I never want to go back to the other book. We'll just wait and see. <wink>
