VSW: Ich Bin Ein Berliner, 3

Berlin is our city this month, with contributions from two photographers, Rich Matheson and Eli Weisz, though todays image comes from the famous “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech.

I played fast and loose with this sketch using a Sailor Fude pen, flipping the nib to get a fine tip then flipping it again for the fat side.  I did an under-coat of shadow in a waterproof grey ink, and then used darker grey in in a waterbrush for this VERY fast sketch – except for the billion peeps, which was done while I listened to an audio book and took FOREVER!
