If you want to know what a person’s like – revisited

Angela Porter 16 July 2019

I thought I’d revisit the previous quote, alter the words a bit and this is the result.

I used an oldy looking type-writer font for the quote and printed it out, I used a Sakura Pigma Micron PN pen to draw the design around it. I then scanned it in and altered the colours in Autodesk Sketchbook.

I learned a new ‘trick’ when using sketchbook, completely by accident, and it’s one I want to explore a little more in the future, especially for adding gradient colours to black and white work.

This would look lovely printed out and added to my BuJo, or even framed and hung on my wall.

Kindness is the light that…

Lazy, arty, Sunday afternoon

I dug out one of my Lamy fountain pens, which had a black ink cartridge in it. I swapped the black for green, and drew this on some bristol board.

From time to time I dipped the nib in the black ink so I had some gradients and variation in the drawing.

It was fun to do. Also, it’s been a while since I drew with pen on paper; most of my work of late has been digital drawing, with the occasional pencil/pen sketch on paper.

Remembrance

Poppies by Angela Porter small

It took me a couple of days to draw and colour these poppies rising through and floating on the green swirls.

It was a very intuitive drawing, and as I completed it I realised that the poppies are like memories, remembrances that rise with and float upon the currents of thoughts that flow through our conscious minds.  Sometimes they stay below the surface, not forgotten but resting, at other times they rise up singly or, as in this case, in a plethora.  Sad, painful even, in some cases, in others joyful.

Quite fitting as we leave Hallowe’en behind and move towards Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday.

I’ve added this design to products available in both my Vida Collection and my Zippi Portfolio.
