Almost a year ago, I decided that I was going to draw more. I wanted to learn how to love my drawings even when they’re not “perfect”. Keri Smith helped with that a great deal. I love her style of drawing and tried to emulate it in my journaling, note taking and other random writings that don’t require much seriousness. It’s taught me how to relax when I draw.
So, just a few months ago I started drawing with black pens. No pencils, just pens. I have a couple favorites including my Pitt pens, a Parallel pen and my Triplus liners. I use them a lot. It helps me to improvise and work with mistakes as well as not depend on an eraser to remove mistakes.
These are the ATCs I’ve done so far. They’re in no particular order, but the gnomes are the last one’s I did. Two are missing because I forgot to photograph them.
I have been making ATCs lately. A lot of them (as you can see above). So, I’ve needed an info sheet for the back to display my name, email, date, number and whatever info I want to add. I usually add an “ingredient” list which includes all the different things I used to color and draw the ATC. Anyhow, I made myself a PDF to print out these little info sheets and made them available for you to download as well. Just click the link below and follow the prompts.
