    Your hatching technique in the first two is fantastic, very moody/atmospheric. The digital barber is also looking quite good, mind you I'm a sucker for cyborgs/robots.

    Lookin' forward to seeing more.

    You've always got a life model in front of you. 100% of the time.
    Get a small sketchbook, say A6 or so, and just carry it with you along with a mechanical pencil or a pen. Draw your hands whenever you have as much as 2 minutes of spare time. Whenever you're waiting, draw. I'd just use a pen or mechanical pencil and forget about using an eraser. It's hard drawing without erasing, but worth it. Erasing is just a waste of time and knowing you can just puts you into a state of mind that's less careful.

    I'd just use a pen with a small sketchbook and draw your hands whenever. Now you've got no excuse!

    youre right. but id really like to study a human body in a course. and i will do it somewhen.
    btw, i've never used an eraser when i do a sketch and i had right now my 7th sketchbook nearly finished... so, i know what you mean.

    Now you've got no excuse!
    shit no! im lazy!

    heres some stuff. hope this still fits into "sketchbook"...

    both things are intaractive installations in my home/atelier.
    the first one is a working television-recipient for a spy cam. this is hanging in my bathroom, so i could watch myself when im sh***ing made of metal, wood and a lot other stuff.
    (this is why this threads called "Orwells Diary of Ink, Pencil and Metal" )
    the second one is a "active-display" and combined with a motion-detector in my working room. if I move the light goes on and everybody outside knows that im working (or not). made of wood and electricity-stuff.

    made some new stuff.

    a very heavy necklace, made out of leather and a lot of stuff from my life. very private things; every one of the tiny bits are a part of my life, like a tattoo.

    the watch doesnt work; the counter does, the puppet-eye does blink and the small gear on top of the larger gear can rotate. fun if youre bored.

    i can only take it off with a pincer.
