Cassette Tapes and ink rendering - studio notes

Throughout quarantine, I've been captived by portable cassette tape players mainly sony walkmans, and I've been sketching them in ink and watercolor. These are little sketches physically, done in moleskine journals loosely as a form of calming down at the end of the day.

I think they hold some promise for a future project, maybe even a run of media (stickers?) or a zine.







Before painting, these sketches are done in red pencil and waterproof ink out of a fountain pen.

these were originally posted on my instagram (opens new window) where I post drawings regularly. Sometime soon I hope to paint these!
