Up With the Sunshine

I think I'm overdue for a comic. Unfortunately I don't have one to post. All I have is this ballpoint pen sketch of sleeping Angelica:

Hey Thanks, Eric! Noting like flimsy copy paper and an old ballpoint pen to bring it back to basics.

ciao Ben, passare di qui mi rende lieta!
Questo disegno è belissimo, viva la vita
ciao!

p.s. (a me piace ancora usare il pennino e la china)

Ben Hatke said...

Grazie, Anna. Poi, Il carte della machina fotocopie che chiama "la china"?

Ben Hatke said...

Me dispiace per lo povero Italiano...

I just found your blog! Nice work, Ben! Beautiful! You just got a follower!

Ben Hatke said...

Thanks, Luciano! I should try to post more often...

ciao Ben! la china è l'inchiostro cinese, china ink.

sono stata in Belgio, nella città Antverpen dove c'è la casa di Pieter Paul Rubens. Ho visto i disegni che ha fatto dei suoi bambini e ho pensato ai tuoi sketch!

Ben Hatke said...

Ah! Ho Capito.

A wonderful charming work. In your art I always see good attention to drawing. I get the sense that you draw constantly and a sketchpad and pen is never far from your grips. These little 'drawn' moments are timeless.

Thanks J.R.Howley! I do draw constantly. It was a sometimes questionable activity when I did it during class, and I my drawing habit helped me get fired from the last job I had.

But IT WAS WORTH IT!!!

How funny. I get fired if I don't draw!
