Woah, my latest piece is more time consuming than others. It will require a couple of shots of coffee. I apologize for the delay.
While we wait for the coffee to be brewed, allow me to introduce my team. They make what I do, and I am ever grateful for their effort.
The main contributors of my work. Fabriano Aquarello watercolor block, hot pressed, 5×7. Mont Blanc fountain pen with Mystery Black ink.
Driving forces in studio. Faber Castell Fine-tip pen. Glass-mate grease pencil.
White cotton gloves to keep me and my work safe. I’ve had to deal with enough smudges to last me a lifetime.
Part-time workers. 6-yr old eraser (old enough to enter kindergarten), mint, pen nib box, and Japanese brush pen. They’re good company, but won’t miss them otherwise.
Stay tuned as my team members work hard to create another caffeinated drawing!
CaffeinatedKaren has reached 100 posts! Whoohoo!
It’s atypical for me to look back on my work after 100 drawings — I’ve gathered to show you, but more importantly, me, how far I’ve come. It started in a small coffee shop in Rhode Island, has traveled to Italy, back to the States, and to South Korea. I didn’t realize how much I grew as an artist when I was drawing, but it is all worthwhile. I’ll continue to draw, where ever I am. Thanks for following and please, keep yourself caffeinated.
The locals hates this place. It’s full of tourists. Oops.
And chocolate. Balanced nutrition on my caffeinated body.
It means sugar. If you don’t like sugar, well you are just too bitter.
Or don’t, because they make it better.
I understand, lady. I’m judging them too.
You know, I never called them by their names.
We’ve seen each other every day but never talked. Then one day he gave me a bottle of beer and gave me the nod. I think we are best friends now.
