    a hack with an axe to grind

    this is my new sketchbook. My goal is to have a distinct style and mood in this one and to experiment with different effects. I'm working with a limited color palette of 4 different kinds of ink. Your two pennies would be greatly appreciated.

    Cool sketch! I wasn't expecting to actually see an axe in the first post! The scratchiness really works with the subject I think. I look forward to seeing the style applied to more pieces!

    A little Watts Atelier but mostly Community College. I have to pull my own weight for the most part. I do have to say Watts taught me allot real fast. CC is a good example of getting what you pay for.

    You've got a shitload of style! Really dynamic stuff going on, something I'm trying to more of in my own work. I'd like to see how you handle ink. Keep it up, I'll definitely be on the look out for updates.

    Hey, neat stuff. I like the brown-paper sketches with the red ink, you get some great effects that way!

    I'm syked to see this sketchbook is still getting props. I regret to say this sketchbook was lost to a fire last spring. I do have to say it was the coolest sketchbook I've ever had. No other sketchbook would be the same.
