vacuum

A new Ollie comic. In this one, I use a kind of "jedi mind trick" that my brothers and I would use on each other when we were younger. Try it out and see if it works. It only works on Ollie, now and then - usually when she is just a little annoyed. For a complete collection of Ollie comics before Aug 2017, check out the book here: http://www.drewscape.net/theolliecomics.html

Spaceman + demo

Steadtler pigment liner 0.5 + chinese ink brush + photoshop. 

Watch the video demo on how this was created:


P.S. The Chinese brush pen in this video is this cheap one HERE. The cap looks different in the video because I made a new cap for it.

Black and white


These couple weeks, I've been carrying around a dip pen, black ink in a small squeeze bottle and a portable Chinese brush. So I'm liking just black and white for now. And I love the satisfying feel of drawing with a dip pen. Not as convenient as a fountain pen, but there is something really enjoyable about using a dip nib.




The weird caped person pic was done with a Twsbi fountain pen with blacks added in using the Chinese brush.

Syle test

I like experimenting and trying out new styles. This is one I saw in a picture book today and I was figuring it out here. (Not exactly. But close.) Pencil + cut outs + watercolour. The girl on the left is wearing a shirt with Ollie's (my daughter's) handwriting on it. They are gibberish letters.

Bag

I remember drawing this at a UCC coffee counter inside Isetan at Westgate mall. Drawn with a pencil and painted with poster colour that I brought around in small Muji airtight containers.

Adventure


I really just wanted to play with watercolours here. Sometimes, I just do pen and ink drawings too often and it's a nice change to do pencil and watercolours again. using wet on wet and wet on dry techniques. And just layering it on. My sketchbook paper isn't great watercolour paper. But it's just for practice.
