Ink in moleskine notebook
Of all the pieces I’ve posted so far, this one is by far the most ‘stolen’. As I’ve mentioned before, I usually look on other peoples blogs or websites to get inspiration. I usually scroll through a few pages, study something I like, move on to the next, and so on until I form an image or idea in my head that I think would look better on paper. In this instance, I came across these photographs of serpents on but does it float and it was a post of some photos done by Guido Mocafico, an amazing photographer. I still love this photo compilation, it’s so unique.
I usually use Micron pens for most of my drawings, and I had also recently received a pack of colored ones from my sister as a gift. I had wanted to do something in color (even though I ended up leaving it black and white) and these photos seemed like the perfect opportunity. And since I had done the octopus in stippling and really liked how it turned out, I decided to do another stippled piece. This one has taken much longer, and is still a work in progress. But it’s probably one of my favorites, and I feel like you always need to have something to keep working on.
