A New Day In My Sketchbook

I had some errands to do today that required some subway rides. First, I got onto the downtown 1 train to get a haircut. The following sketch is of a couple of passengers, Sailor 1911S zoom nib, Platinum Carbon Black ink, watercolor:

I was early, so I had a coffee at The City Bakery and sketched for a few minutes with the Sailor 1911S zoom nib, Platinum Carbon Black ink:

Here’s a “before” selfie taken at the mirror that took about five minutes, Sailor 1911S zoom nib, Platinum Carbon Black ink:

There was no time for an “after” selfie. Maybe another time. Remind me.

I was on my way to school to meet with my advisor after my haircut. This should have been a twenty minute ride, but there was a broken rail on the Brooklyn bound 2/3 line. Two hours later I got to school. I had to get out downtown, walk to another station, and continued my trek. No sketches, I was too stressed.

After the successful meeting with my advisor, I took the train home, Sailor 1911S zoom nib, Platinum Carbon Black ink in the foreground, which ran out of ink. The background was sketched with the Pelikan 205 clear transparent demonstrator wit an extra fine nib, Platinum Carbon Black ink:

I would normally add watercolor, but it’s a busy day. Maybe later.

Thanks for visiting!

See you later!!!
