I overworked this a bit and it’s such an insignificant scene that I don’t even know why I care. I will continue to do stuff in my sketchbook but the oils have been calling me and I really want to get stuff down on canvas that is a bit more polished and shows more of my potential. I call all of sketchbook stuff “trash art” and it’s not that I think it’s trash…it’s just…I don’t know. I spent a good part of the summer on my current sketchbook and feel that it’s time to work on things that take more than a few hours to knock out. Art leads me by the nose and not the other way around so I just have to follow…
Almost all of my art since late 2002 is at www.chrisfrancz,com

9/8/14. Scene near my laundromat in Stroudsburg, PA. Drew it there and added color at home.

I used a brush pen to draw this then colored it with Inktense pencils which are like watercolor pencils but lays down “ink” and when water is added it  turns permanent. I doubt I will use watercolor pencils again.

9/6/14. This took me about 2 hours. It’s the artificial waterfall at my apartment complex. It was good practice. I started around 7pm and the light was going away. I first drew it very roughly with a pencil then used a brush pen to put in all the shapes. I painted it when I went inside. Subjects don’t scare me as much when I do them in my sketchbook. There are some weak points to this but I’m sorta happy with it.

9/3/14. I’ve been thinking about doing another comic book since I made the last one in 2000. Over the last few weeks I have been thinking about doing a short story about buddy and cartoonist, Chester Brown inspired this loose brush style. These are just quick sketches in the back of my sketchbook. I wanted to keep the blacks to only Buddy and the hat I always wear when I go outside in the evening. I just don’t seem to have the patience to do anything more than quick sketchbook pages. I will try though…
