Cautioner 2

A friend of mine recently started working at a office supply/art store. He has been meeting a lot of the local artist and has been gleefully exchanging creative tips and enthusiasm. Generously, he gave me a sample of this high end paper he was informed about called Stonehenge. The paper is very smooth with minimal pitting, but grabs pencil wonderfully! Thanks Grimmer.

I Love Trains!

Ever since childhood trains have always fascinated me. 
Still as an adult I will pull over to watch the trains go by.

 I was trying to use every means of applying ink to this drawing. 
You can see the use of a pen, brush and the use of a toothbrush to splatter. 
I used a razor blade to scrap out the train tracks.
