Illustration Friday: "Bicycle"

I sketched this in Photoshop to experiment with the idea for this week's Illustration Friday and then I ran out of time!  I decided to post it anyway in its very rough form because I really wanted to post this week and, honestly, I kind of like it rough and unfinished.  I hope you do, too!

Illustration Friday: "Bottled"

Another ballpoint sketch, scanned right out of the sketchbook and quickly colored.  It's all I have time for this week.  But I ended up liking it!

New ballpoint sketches

With these sketches I joined two things I've been really interested in lately:  trees and drawing with ballpoint pen.  I really like the fact that the pen can't be erased as I work, and it has the look of both pencil and crow quill pen.  And I'm getting a real kick out of making tree personalities!  I think I'm going to develop the one on the left into a submission for Illustration Friday.
