Sketchbooks - Sketch Nights

There was a time when, Thursday night, use to be sketch night for me and a small group of friends.
We’d meet in a restaurant and sketch people, waiters, food… and often, each other.
Here is a couple of cameo from my buddy Simon Otto.
And a little post-it portrait of me by Gabriele Pennacchioli.







On Simon’s own blog you can see the actual sketch that Simon was doing wile I drew this, Check it out here.

Your sketches are very "despiring." Your incredible ability with the loose brush sketch inspires, yet depresses me at the same time. Keep it up, this is a kind of depression that I enjoy.

Great drawings. Normally i use this type of sketchbook, and not a brush, but a ballpoint pen;in this case I love the effect and texture; detailed but loose. What do you use,besides astonishing talent: a brush ( do you carry an inkpot with you?), or is it a pen? Thanks for the inspiration!!!

Blogger edhead said...

Wow man these are amazing - I really love them! Wonderful stuff. What do you use precisely? If possible please let us know since I'm presuming you have to set yourself up with a bit of equipment to get this effect, as opposed to a quick sketch on the spur of the moment with a rotring stlye pen? How long does each person take? And that looks like a Moleskine...? Beautiful stuff!

1:51 PM  
Blogger Ale said...

Hi,
Thank you!
To answer your questions edhead and VAL,
There is no equipment, just a special pen.
It's a Japanese fountain pen that has a brush tip as nib.
It's fantastic, however it's a bitch!
I've been using "her" for years now and still I haven't really mastered it. And what makes it even harder is that the pen response is very volatile,
every time I go back to Europe, for example, I f#*k up a bunch of sketches just because the difference of humidity in the air makes the pen react completely different...
But I'll get there.
The Book is a Moleskine "plain note book" (not "sketch book"! the "sketch book" is -water resistant- and does not absorb ink!!!!! ... unforgivable)

Thanks for your comments!

Really great drawings. I love the quality of the strokes. Whatever lack of control you claim to have, it seems to be working. So what is this brush pen you are using, exactly? Can you share a brand name with us? Is it like the watercolor pens that Enrico Casarosa uses? Love his watercolor sketches, by the way.

Cheers

You are the best sketch artist I have ever seen, reminds me of the illustrations by evan hecox but in your case with no style restrictions, more authentic work here! What kind of pen do you use to do this? looks like a sakura brush!

Work by other researchers has shown that oxytocin-sensitive cells in the brain play a role in the neural control of erectile responses, suggesting that Viagra and other similar medicines may actually be working via multiple channels. http://www.viagrathunder.com

Generic Viagra is used in the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction (impotence), but it is not a cure. Impotence can be caused by a number of factors, either physical or psychological. Viagra can help maintain an erection but it will not stimulate arousal.
