A story about how other creatives shape you… push you… remind you!

I’ve fallen in love with TWSBI’s and draw them a lot.
They are architectural, like little buildings,
and you can see all the ways they work which is very cool.

I drew these in my last Nostaglie Sketchbook but resisted adding paint.
I wanted to, then loved the clean line (I’ve been doing more drawing lately)
and so let it go.  Close that book and put it on my shelf.

Then Tonya from @scratchjournal wrote about a piece that nagged at her and
I realized this was STILL nagging at me even after I closed the book.

Good grief.

I retrieved the sketchbook and added colors,
mostly inks that match the colors of the pens,
though I didn’t buy Monteverde Valentine Red to fill the red one.

Turn out MGraham’s Cobalt Turquoise matches my turquoise pen…
the only watercolor… I wanted something that conveyed
a loss of light through the pens for the turquoise TWSBI as it is solid plastic.
the others are demonstrators and jeweled translucent colors.
