Markers - I like fatter ones.

Doug Chayka, who was one of the full-time instructors at the Academy, showed us his marker drawings he had done in Berlin, which inspired me to revisit using the tool. (The last time I had extensively use the Sharpie marker was for 2-point perspective exercises in Intro to Industrial class) I soon found it not quite right and moved on to a similar but different type of marker, the one that I've used for the images above and below.

It's lets me block out shapes in a more graphic way, which presents exciting challenges in my decision making.

I drew people, but sometimes (well, most of the times) they're gone before I'm done...

and this is what happens.
