Hong Kong Sketch Book Diaries. The Black Ink Series.

Written by . Filed under Drawings, Blogging. Tagged , , . Comments Off on Hong Kong Sketch Book Diaries. The Black Ink Series..







Here’s a quick and small black ink series of Hong Kong. We’ve been here for almost 2 months now but it really feels like we just arrived last week. There’s just so much to do here! Hong Kong is seriously an incredible city. So vibrant and rich with culture, arts tech and more. You can be in central surrounded by the hippest cafes and restaurants and then you can be literally in another world within 15-20 min. by boat to a quiet fishing village (more on that in another post). We feel like we’ve only seen 1% of HK during this entire time here.

We’re here until the 27th and then we’ll be back in Vancouver to jump back into the thick of it. If you need immediate assistance with any current projects with us, please contact our incredible Studio Manager, Aiken. She’ll sort you out. Thanks for reading our blog.

Illustrators do warm-ups by sketching like athletes doing warm-ups by stretching.

Much like athletes, illustrators need to do warm-ups that act like training exercises by doing quick illustrations for fun. It helps loosen fingers, the wrist and more importantly, the mind.

Did this quick sketch before tackling a commercial project in Hong Kong. This piece is based on a photo I took with my Google Pixel while in Causeway Bay. I ABSOLUTELY love drawing with this pental brush pen. Nothing beats the feeling of an old school brush pen hitting on Moleskine paper.

Follow our adventures in Hong Kong through our IG channel. We’re here until the end of Feb.

Kick-starting the week off with this fun little illustration called ‘Dawg Gone It’.
Been trying to build up a bigger body of personal work while juggling a million commercial projects has been hard but rewarding. Dug up this older sketch in my sketchbook and decided to give it a go. If you’re interested in a print, drop us a line. We might make a few prints for the holidays and you can always visit us at the studio store in the West End. We’re usually here Mon – Fri from 10am – 6pm.

Here’s a closer crop version. Can’t really make up my mind on which version is better. Full illustration or closer crop?

Wanna see the illustration process? well looky here. Hit that play button below.

The rough concept sketch. Nothing beats the feeling of drawing on paper with a good old-fashioned pencil.
