Ink doodles

I started drawing again a few months ago, this time using ink and no pencil, which is mostly new and unusual for me. A significant motivating factor probably was my usual, futile desire to eventually become good enough to impress someone who likely would never care anyway.

Done with a Pilot G-2 0.5mm gel pen. (I hadn’t yet acquired the impressive Pilot Hi-Tec-C pen that I kept reading about from various Kickstarter projects.)

  1. Woah! Nice job, James! I really liked the gradient on the candle!

  2. I remember the cult of Pilot back in high school. With those beautiful pens that bled like crazy though. Still, I covet that pen, if I still used pens.

    “futile desire to eventually become good enough to impress someone”

    I remember when Tae made a comment along those lines when I invited him to something way back. Basically if the event had no chance to meet new single girls, he wouldn’t bother attending. Yea, I think most of what I used to learn to do (music, social dance, hockey, etc.) was to impress someone.
