Biro getting hot

Been a lot of demand lately for the hand drawn side of my work, and as I dont use pencils there’s been some friction spinning off these roller-balls. There’s definately something very controllable about the Bic biro, its sensitivity and delicate way it lays the ink down, so different to mineral sticks.

I heard they were licensed by the British RAF for working in high altitude, something to do with the viscocity of the ink working in different air pressures. Either way, it replaced my pencils mainly because (much like car paint) its easier to get hold of around the country/city.

Latest sketch is a work in progress, its going to become stereoscopic, something I haven’t done in a while, so these are just preliminary lines.
