Title: Red Chief
Size: cut from A6.
Equipment: Parker 51 EF, B. Noodler’s Black. Diamine Poppy Red (somehow more orangey than usual, probably because of pen contamination). Waterwashed with W&N Kolinsky brush.
Computer alteration: Scanned, slightly brightened and heightened contrast.
Paper: Clairefontaine 90g.
Inspiration: Lost socks and the birds responsible.
Notes: Red Chief is strong and brightly coloured. I like how his sock is sort of twisted.
Important notice: The Red Chief is not as goblinoid as the Green Leader. Instead, he is extra colourful and… …robust.
Upcoming: Next up, Baby Green!
In other news: I recently discovered I have an iron deficiency, which explains some of the tiredness and general uneasieness I have been feeling recently. Back on track with substitution therapy, but it will be a while until I feel up to par again, I guess.

Dedicated to my mother

Title: The Hoarder
Size: cut from A6.
Equipment: Several Parker 51. Noodler’s Black. Diamine Damson, R&K Alt Goldgrün, Diamine Poppy Red. Sloppily waterwashed.
Computer alteration: Scanned, slightly brightened and heightened contrast. Just to get rid of a bit of graininess (ehm…).
Paper: Clairefontaine 90g.
Inspiration: Lost socks and the birds responsible.
Notes: So, I got inspired by the first sockbird. Soon I had several sockbirds that I didn’t know what to do with. Alas, a drawer of sockbirds. Love that jamble of puns. More of them are on their way (puns as well as Sockbirds).
Important notice: I am very well aware that birds don’t have navels. This is not a bird. This is a sockbird.
In other news: I have 20 followers! Great, you are all very welcome.
Upcoming: More sockbirds. Sockbirds will become a recurring theme in the weeks and months to come. I am thinking maybe some sort of “Sockbirds for charity” in the future? I’d have to be prepared to give them new homes, though. Hm… The bird above is already adopted by my mother. Small steps, small steps.
