Here's a phrenology head drawing I made for the magazine 'One and Other.'
I decided to give the editor a choice of images. I personally like the ones with
colour and hope she chooses one of those.
I tend to use mapping pens as you get a really satisfying fine line, and it's
easier not to make any smudges or blotches.
My Grandpop used mapping pens to make maps amongst other drawings, and it's nice to inherit these and keep them in use and part of the family. I feel like I'm part of a tradition, using these pens, the old fashioned and ornate brass and wood inkwell, and the victorian hinged cabinet, with variety of nib pens and papers.
