Fifth and 32nd

A ballpoint pen sketch I did at Manhattan, new York. Popped it in the Photoshop and voila! Lots of fun doing it. I learned that a fairly finished sketch can really help speed up the painting process.

Found a cute little Rembrandt study on my sketchbook tday. A teacher once told me that Master copies heightens our sense of beauty, thus I always try to squeeze in one or two every week. This one was done in ballpointpen and no I did not use it to make the dense blacks, I exercised good judgment and switched to a brushpen for the blacks.
I have gotten better at switching tools in the middle of drawing or painting. Awareness of tools is a discipline in itself. While working, I have to constantly ask myself (for the sake of efficiency) "Am I using the best tool for this task?"

Here's a collaboration I did with my friend Shingo Hikiami, we took turns to paint, passing the wacom tablet to the other person when we run out of ideas. Thanks to our neighborhood starbucks for providing power for the laptop. Words cant describe the satisfaction when the piece starts to emerge from random scribbles that we threw in.
