pen ink on paper

New paper for the journals

The next few books will be holding something new and special inside. It is of great importance for the writer to not be distracted by minor nuisances, to immerse himself in the story, idea or memory.

The next journals will be of elegant volume and medium format, again bound in fine natural colored goatskin and tooled with precious materials. To go with that elegance, I’ll be using this smooth textured, cream color Clairefontaine paper. A true pleasure to write on, especially for the pen and ink connoisseurs.

An excerpt from a book I annotated for my Writing Studies course. It was pretty interesting, and brought up a really enlightening discussion about education styles in my class.
Also, I’ve been really into my studygram lately (it’s also @/smallhandwriting). You should check it out, I follow back most other studygrams.

This is a continuation of my Mushishi-like artist box project. Inspired by the “Mushishi” TV animation series I’m making a backpack-box for outdoor painting sessions. 

 First, I made some concept sketches to visualise how the box will be used and what functions it should have: foldable legs and top so it can serve as a table, multiple drawers for small painting equipment, back space for larger things (sketchbooks and my portable easel), side straps for my tripods and of course backpack-like straps on the back. 

I will be posting videos including drawing these sketches and the progress on making the actual box on YouTube. I want to finish it fast and use it outside as soon as it becomes a little bit warmer!

Technical stuff:

  • Medium: Botanical FABRIANO Hot Press 210g B5
  • Sketch: Mitsu-Bishi Grade HI-UNI pencil
  • Ink: TACHIKAWA Linemarker A.T. 0.3 mm
  • Colours: 38 color Schmincke set + 2 custom greens.

「蟲師のアーティストボックス」プロジェクトの続きです。テレビアニメ「蟲師」に影響されて、屋外での絵描きセッションで便利なバックパック箱を作っています。

箱を作る前に、自分のアイコンキャラクターを使ってコンセプトスケッチを描いてみました。箱に欲しい機能を想像しながら。 折りたためる足と、天井部分がテーブルになること、いろんな細かい道具を入れられる引き出し、大きなスケッチブックが入る裏のスペース、三脚を運べるサイドのストラップ、箱自体を背負えるストラップ。

このスケッチを描くプロセスと箱作りを録画したので、編集したらメイキング動画をアップします。
