glossy plotter paper

I enjoy discovering different papers and textures to draw on. Sometimes I’ll pick up a piece of junk mail, chipboard packaging or in this case, a scrap piece of glossy paper from the plotter from my past employment. When they would print out packaging mock-ups they would have lots of scraps that would get thrown away. I’d keep the good pieces and use them for doodling and such. It’s interesting to see how different pens, pencils and markers react to different materials. I found this 36″ wide by 15″ tall scrap and took a black Prismacolor marker to it and drew these guys. The marker put down a solid, jet black stroke. The contrast of the black marker on the bright white paper was nice! I noticed that the strokes would have to be pretty quick to avoid the squeaky, sticky action you get with glossy paper. I have also noticed since I drew these (about 2 months ago), that the marker has begun to fade, especially at the ends of the strokes. It kind of turns brown as it fades.

This is a photo I took tonight about 1 hour ago. The moon was HUGE coming up over Mt. Timpanogos!

Robot

My wife was watching some of the neighbor kids while their mom ran to the store. He brought over one of his new toys he just got for his birthday and proudly showed me how it works. I snapped a few photos of it, because I liked the complexity of this robot.
