|My first free play with the tombow markers, a fantasy face and some quick happy notes.|
I don't think there's anything so personal as the preference of pens and markers. People go all crazy over copic markers for instance and I found them just horrible (the smell alone, yuck), so don't go by me when investing in stuff, haha.

Anyway, I got a big selection of the tombows and because I had some double in various sets I actually now have an extra set of them to play with on the couch, now the heat is still too much in the studio (sigh, I miss you, dear studio).

So here's some simple and quicky sketches I did while simultaneously listening to the tv. I'm not good at multitasking and I don't really believe anybody is. I don't even think there is such a thing. I think multitasking is simply going back and forth between multiple things very fast, which may make it seem like you are doing two or more things at once, but that's really not the case. It's very tiring to the mind, because it doesn't get the chance to really focus.

I may have the tv on while sketching, and I may even get the gist of what's going on there, but that's not the same as really watching a programme. That's why I mostly only have reruns on or stuff I don't really care about anyway as a background noise. I have however decided to just turn the damn thing off in the future and focus on my sketching/doodling. It's much more peaceful that way.

The sketches of today are expressive to say the least. Not all equally good, but I do like the effect of working in different bright colors to do a drawing. It's a fast way of sketching without thinking too much. I do hope you enjoy them.
Wishing you all a wonderful and artsy Wednesday!
