I am just putting the finishing touches on a "Doodle Zine" for a swap over at swap-bot. I try to make at least one zine each year. I believe this is my 11th one.
I always print extras for additional trades ... so if you have a zine (or just some doodles) - give me a holler & we can trade.

I drew this skull as a blind contour drawing and then came back and went over it with a heavier pen and added the little shading marks on the cheeks.
I did this next blind contour drawing when I first woke up this morning. If you are a fan of Futurama, you should be able to recognize the character.

I'm so amazed by the color I am getting out of the water based markers. They are probably close to 20 years old & almost all of them are "juicy" ... funny thing - I have other sets that were more expensive and supposedly higher quality that dried out within a few months of use.

Then I used my Sharpie Gold Metallic pen to add some random leaf shapes, and my Sharpie white paint pen to add a little detail.
I covered the entire page with clear varnish to preserve the layer and keep the inks from smearing.
Next I used my black PITT Indian ink pens in different sized tips to detail the big flowers. And another go round with the white paint pen to make things pop. Finally, I used a little sparkly gel pen to add some shimmer.
I plan to cut this up to make pages for junk journals, ATC backgrounds, inchie backgrounds, etc...
I enjoyed the process & was happy to have some time for art on a Saturday afternoon.
