During week one Roz recommended just getting used the the brush and the type of marks it was capable of on the page. I chose to doodle a bit to get used to the pen and remind myself of the types of marks it made. The book is an accordion structure made with Rives BFK that when closed is about 6 inches square. Creating an open page spread that is 6 x12 inches.
Playing with some lettering styles here along with sketching my breakfast sandwich. Lettering and words in general seems to be when the PPB pen gives me the most trouble.
I am having fun playing around with this pen again as it is not one I had been carrying with me recently. It has been hard to avoid adding color but on the other hand the pages all have a certain simplicity to them. Just the black line used to describe enough of the object and nothing extra to get in the way.
