 Music is one of my favorite 'prompts' for drawing. The following were all drawn while listening to my Brainsick inspiration playlist on random; songs and / or artists are listed below each image. I usually try to make a drawing per song, but some I create over the course of a few or several songs.

Sketchbook_Brain Drain 16 Pages 1 - 12!

Brain Drain 16 is my first square (9x9) sketchbook. It's a Bee Paper Super Deluxe, the same type I used for my three Creatura sketchbooks. Super Deluxe sketchbooks are fantastic: great for all media, and they handle multiple washes well. Their slogan of "The Only Sketchbook You Will Ever Need" holds up.

The left edge is blurry on each scan; my scanner accommodates letter size scans and smaller. I cropped the left edge on some.

I don't know why Blogger grays some of my images...

Playing with Lily's design. I need to draw from life again!
