During a family vacation, my nephew thoroughly expressed his amazement at my watercolor moleskine and waterbrush technique. For Christmas, I thought I’d surprise him with his very own moleskine (only smaller to match his size) and a set of watercolor pencils and waterbrush. As an added surprise, I added this sketch of his favorite character to the first spread.

Lettering is one of my favorite things to do and I sometimes find myself sketching words in various styles. Illustration master Gregory Manchess provides an interesting post on the correlation between one’s penmanship and drawing skills here.
