New York, London & Paris
Some new books. I recommend The Nao of Brown by Glyn Dillon its one of the best graphic novels I've read in a long time. The artwork of beautifully imagined watercolours combined with a story set in our present day somehow shows a real insight into well, life so by the end I put into done with a sigh and a deep breath.
Paris Sketchbook is the second book I've got by Fabrice Moireau. He draws and paints so accurately and with freedom I can never figure out how he does this, especially with drawing building is easy to get caught up in details so your picture can end up overworked, Fabrice's work has a freedom and a joy in each place he paints.
I've been aware that I've been using art pens (Faber Castell) for ages one down side is that the quality of line is too regular. So this is an attempt to try out dip pens for a change, these are Deleter pens which are manga supplies imported from Japan.
