Sketching from Rome to Singapore to Dili
I’d like to show some sketching made while going from Rome to Singapore to Dili. I stopped over all these wonderful places and… suddenly popped out from my pocket one of my handmade micro sketchbooks. Yes I keep always one or two even near my passport pocket, believe me or not. At least I can use them as notebooks.
This time I sketched in two micro sketchbooks that are around 6cm x 6cm so around 2 inches of side. They are made with scrap paper from my office, also the cover are made from old folders: and I like to save in this sketchbooks all the prints, marks, labels and so what so to made more visible that are recycled.
This sketching was done mainly in the time that I was not running between airports, and since I was leaving my wife alone for my new deployment, pregnant at the 8th month, 12000 km away so I awaited some good mood to sketch.
Here there is a sample image but please see later my gallery.
So I was sketching in this tiny books, first of all because I’m shy despite my size, and to be discrete and quiet. Although sometimes is beautiful to have a pinch of vanity while you are sketching and people asks to you and says “Oh you are so bravo. Cool!” or things like that, I like most of the time to be almost invisible.
Here the gallery of today, have fun and let me know what do you think about, sincerely!
All these sketches were made unbelievably, when I was in good mood first (you know with around 27 hours flight I had some chances…), with my faithful workhorse the Lamy Safari Fountain pen filled with Platinum Carbon Ink. And the colors are as always my ever shining Winsor& Newton Artists’ inside my handmade micro kit and the Kuretake BrusH2o waterbrushes.
