mssion: mission

May 24, 2010

Back from a quick drawing mission to the Mission. Head down around 24th or so and there’s a great patch of old Victorians. The structures here haven’t been restored out of their original character. Signs of renovation are everywhere – but you can still find plenty of carved bay windows and romanesque doorways. I really enjoy sketching the old fashioned power lines strung everywhere. I’m sure there’s no reason to be nostalgic about power lines – but they do give your sketches a real urban feel :)

    Hey, what kind of materials are you using for these? They’re great!

      These are just ballpoint and brushpen (Pentel GFKP) on 60lb photocopy stock…so nothing special at all. Well, then when I scan them, I re-enforce the lines and increase the contrast – just to keep the image clear on the smalls screen…

        Ah! Thanks, I’ll give that a try. I’ve been working on some stuff lately and I’ve been trying to find some good technical tips.
