Catalan pyrenees

The Aigüestortes y Estany St. Maurici National Park is in the catalonian part of the pyrenees (about 60 km west of Andorra).

I did these drawings in july, on a three day hiking trip from Boí to Espot. We spent the whole day walking,  with me getting blisters on my feet in the process and then resting those very tired feet on the rocky ground, sleeping under the open sky. A great trip, thanks mostly to my more adventurous, persistent and knowledgeable comrade from the alpes, Erica.
I decided i´d rather take food and a sleeping bag than art supplies-so it was just a black micron and a muji brush pen, and the smallest, thinnest sketchbook  i had.
I´m glad i had to go all minimalistic on these ones.

jens friebe

jens friebe´s gig in tiny walpodenakademie, mainz, three weeks ago. great lyrics and trashy pop. the audience seems kinda indifferents, but that´s just because i drew them before the concert started, so everyone was still chatting and drinking beer. couldn´t resist a little photoshop.

blue



everything is blue! since ctober i´ve been using a pentel colour brush with blue ink. The colour is awesome and you automatically draw faster, with a more fluid line.

the day after the sketchcrawl

Some sketchers met up again the day after the official sketchcrawl, walking around Montjuic and basically freezing to death. we took refuge in a café in poble sec and lapin and me started sketching over a mug of Chai. This pensive guy is daniel and you can see lapin´s drawings of that day here.




césar, roberta y and lapinette chatting and looking at sketchbooks. below, a pretty portuguese girl (i´m sorry, i forgot your name) and freekhand looking decidedly malicious.
