UNIBALL JETSTREAM- you're the ball point bomb

new ball point pen will probably be my constant companion as I begin journaling in odd moments

thanks Danny

been in touch with Danny Gregory via u tube and book - a artist who knows to bring it down to the day to day, relavent feet on the ground place.

So I'm really trying to do a 10 minute sketch in a journal everyday.

Finding small moments is kinda fun.

Here is a sketch I did of Knobbie, who would not roll over for a biscuit for the last 2 days.....she also has a bad skin allergy so she is scratching all the time.

I did this while the sesamee seeds were toasting in the over!
