    John Bivens - CA Sketchbook

    Figured I would post a bunch of random sketch stuff that's been gathering. Mostly done with a Pentel Pocket Pen or my Kuretake brush pen, I occasionally add mid-tones with whatever is lying around.

    I have one of those pentel pocket pens on the way in the mail, and seeing what you've produced with the same tool has me really excited to use it! Awesome start to a sketchbook, I really dig your subject matter and stylization . Inspiring stuff for sure, can't wait to see more!

    I heart brushes. Not to mention endless kudos to people who rock freehand typography.

    Thanks for all the comments so far. I have a couple more I whipped out, since I found some free samples of the Strathmore wet media board lying around.

    Some more quick stuff. Some are convention cards I doodle when I go to a show. Usually $3 or free when someone buys one of my books. The rest is just playing around in my spare time.

    Here's some photos of me from a very small, recent convention. I tend to like the smaller ones, since it seems like it's easier to interact with your audience... and the other people in the alley.

    The wonderful lady in the very posed photo is cover artist Jenny Frison.

    One more, from tonight, done while watching TV with the fiancee.

    Really just felt like playing around with the brush.

    an older color sketch. I was sitting at a drink n' draw, and there was a sketch exchange where I told my friend Carolynn to take any page out of my sketchbook she wanted. Apparently she liked the colors.

    Hey folks.

    This sketchbook page has a bit of influence coming from my friends Lukas and Brandon, who just completed their first Witchdoctor mini-series through IMAGE.

    A couple of things from the comic then some of my usual random junk.

    enjoy

    Sitting around doing pencils today, so I thought it would be fun to have a retro-sketch-saturday & look back at something I was messing with a year and a half ago.
