Most of you know that I sketch my coffee nearly every morning as a bit of a ritual. I’m not concerned with how good my sketches are as the goal is simply to get my creative juices pumping. But I’m always a bit uncomfortable with how much the coffee sketches dominate my sketchbook. I’ve recently come to the conviction that grouping them together in a single spread is definitely the answer! Not only do I have fun composing the spread during the week, but I like the short comments about how I feel every morning.
At the moment my latest obsession is with white on black headings. I do the black block using my Sailor fude pen (yes using a lot of ink) and once that is totally dry I add text with a white gel pen. The one I’m using at moment is a Pentel Signo with pigmented ink. This pen a bit broad but it’s ok for these headings. I think I prefer using Gelly Rolls but I don’t have one handy at the moment.
