Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother's Day!

Here’s an old Artist Trading Card (ATC) that I drew using a Micron Black Ink Pen with a tip that was .005 (I think). I was into pointillism which is creating the shading of an image using clusters of strategically placed dots. It’s very meditative to do this technique. I highly recommend it. Of course, not all of it is pointillism or stippling. I improvise now and then.

Happy Mother’s Day!

    1. It’s from the Impressionist Movement. Check out artists, Georges Seurat or Paul Signac, if you want to see masters at it. I got started in this back in high school and it really helped me to just relax during my stressed out 20s.


    1. As far as I know, it’s not an official event. I traded with people I know. However, there are plenty of sketching events if you go through Yahoo groups. I know that there’s something called Dr. Sketchy events for a more mature audience that are packed with illustrators who sketch live models and there are contests for best and worst sketches. I imagine you might be able to get others in that crowd to trade ATCs with you. Really though, ask anyone you know to try it.
