White lines, black shapes

First, I would like to say that my last blog post received more views than any other! I am proud and happy that so many people read it. I even received new followers! Thanks everyone.
I received a few emails asking for more sketchbook pages, and was a bit hesitant. I didn’t really want to post every, single page, but if it keeps you motivated and you start to give me some feedback, I will. I am a bit concerned about the lack of constructive criticism from the readers, that I know exist. I really want this blog to help fellow artist and non-artist folk alike. Of course, I can’t know what you are thinking unless you leave me a comment!
So, here are the next couple of pages in my new book. I used the same pen & ink technique in this post. It took me forever, obviously. I really like doing stuff like this because it really relieves my stress. It is time consuming, but eases the mind of worry. I usually start with a curvy line and build it up in layers. I try very hard to make the black and white as even as possible, all while keeping contrast. I know it seems like a crazy feat but art is all about risk taking, isn’t it?
I also wanted to give you guys the rest of my favorite vendors from the Renegade Craft Fair. I stopped at every tent, but only a few more deserved a link.
