Making and creating music is my number one source for feeding my creative addiction. It has been a while since I’ve posted any new music on my SoundCloud page, but I have been secretly working on a batch of new experiments. I’m not ready to share any of that music yet. Hopefully before too long I will have time to flesh out some stuff and update. In case you are interested, https://soundcloud.com/sean-patrick-kupisz is where you can hear some of my ideas from the last couple of years.
I started a new sketchbook the other day, and sketched my sketching supplies.
I also sketched a couple of my other tools.
The Audio-Technica ATH-M50 headphones have been my headphone of choice for listening to music. I’ve used them so much that I have replaced the ear-cups at least five times!
The Tascam VL-S3 desktop monitors aren’t the best, but they will do for now.
The Focurite Scarlett 2i2 is the tool I use when I want to plug an instrument into my computer when I use audio production software to record my musical ideas.
My Warby Parker glasses are my main glasses to see what I am doing. I was wearing a different pair of glasses on when I made this sketch (Foster-Grants from CVS).
I used different techniques for these two sketches. For the headphones, I used a Platinum Carbon Ink Pen with Platinum Carbon Black ink to first sketch the contours, which I lost concentration several times, hence the wonky left earpiece!
I sketched the glasses first using watercolor on a brush, trying to work on the overall mass first, and worked my way down to the interface. Once the watercolor was dry, I sketched over the watercolor to define the contours with the Carbon Ink Pen.
It was interesting how the different techniques contributed to the end result. I have a lot to learn, but it was fun splashing pen and ink with watercolor onto my sketchbook pages!
Thanks for visiting!
See you later!!
