True artists don’t erase!

In recent years I have been trying to be more conscious about how exactly I make art, and one of the things that I managed to change significantly for the better in my creative process, is how I feel about fixing and redoing things. Until recently, I would often not only ignore things in my… Continue reading True artists don’t erase!

Retro Writing 09 – printing on the go.

Even though the NEC Mobilegear has some downsides, it's still my favorite go-to mobile writing device mainly because of its compatibility with file formats and just how dully usable the Windows CE system is. Thus, I was delighted to spot online a cute portable printer that can be used with Windows CE 3.0 and wirelessly… Continue reading Retro Writing 09 – printing on the go.

Retro Writing 08 – Psion 3mx

I have been interested in the Psion family of mobile computers for quite some time already.

Printing lines for watercolors

One of the problems of coloring a piece traditionally, and especially so with watercolors is making mistakes. If we make a big mistake when coloring a line art, not only we lose the time we spent putting the colors in but also the original line art done with ink or pencils. To be less stressed… Continue reading Printing lines for watercolors

About fountain pens

I have been using fountain pens for drawing since I can remember. We have been using them in Poland for writing in primary school (your letters were supposed to look better when written this way) so, naturally, I used them for drawing too. Sometimes I switch to other pens, multiliners or rapidograph pens for the… Continue reading About fountain pens
