1. Because every month is Inktober for me, I decided to do a little ink process post. I went to an awesome burlesque show last week at R Bar in Soho and have been dreaming in burlesque routines since!

    1. These are my materials! Dr. P.H. Martin’s Bombay India Ink, Rekab Kolinsky brush, and a shallow ceramic dish (this one needs to be cleaned)!

    2. Next comes a pencil sketch which I bring over to the light box for inking. I will do different layers for different stuff (her body, accessories, and feathers are all different layers). I will also switch brushes often, using a scraggly and scratchy one for things like the feathers.

    3. Off to Photoshop for color!

  2. Cleaning out the studio! A bunch of new stuff on the good ol’ Etsy shop. www.etsy.com/shop/KangarooCourt
