All in Art Supplies

ArtSnacks: November 2018

Each “menu” in an ArtSnacks box has a call to action, which is called the ArtSnacks Challenge. It asks subscribers to create a piece of art with the supplies that are included in the box. For this month, I created a drawing of a pomegranate. I sketched with the MegaGraphite pencil, painted with the acrylic gouache—using my Galeria paintbrush, of course—and used the Microperm pen to add texture and shading to the art.

Vlog: New Moleskine & Kuretake Brush Pens and Markers!

Have you ever discovered a new clothing store, walked in, and said, "Now this is my style?" Everything in the place just screams your name, and you'd turn the store into your closet if you just had the cash to buy it all out? Well, that's how I feel about art supply stores. I don't really care to shop for clothes, but paintbrushes, acrylics, pencils—now that's my style!

Art From May '17 Vacation

finally got around to photographing all of the art that I created during the wonderful vacation that I took in  May! This first image is of many different spreads that were (mostly) created while en route during my trip. For occupying myself during the car ride, I took my Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers (click HERE for my review), some black pens, and a small set Copic markers to pair with a Moleskine sketchbook.

Bottled Ink & Freebies

The supply that I'm discussing today has been an obsession of mine for about a year, starting from when I discovered it though an online impulse buy. I had been looking into new ways of getting color onto paper, other than the convention routine of paint or pen. That's when I came across Dr. Ph. Martin's Bombay India ink. Since that purchase, I've added Daler-Rowney neon inks, the Liquitex INK! muted color edition, and others to my growing collection.

ArtSnacks Unboxing: August 2016

My monthly ArtSnacks always sparks something creative in me, especially when the box feels like it was made just for me! Everything in this box was one hundred percent something that I would purchase myself, including acrylic paint in one of my go-to colors, and an expanding bag that I didn't realize I needed until I was filling it up with  my favorite pens.
