Amazing ink work by Pierce Hargan. Looks like he still has some work to do on this one (if you can believe it). Follow him to catch the final version.

Gab Collab is back for 2013! I hope you’ll make something with me.
And we’re back on schedule! Here’s this week’s collaboration. Add to (or subtract from!) it, then submit it here. Tell your friends; the more the merrier!
This isn’t finished yet. I guess it needs a background, plus I need to scan it better!
Sometimes I ink first, and sometimes I watercolor first. It just depends! You can find links to videos of me drawing and painting in my about page.
A work in progress. Lots of green.
Little plant doodles. Watercolor, white ink on hot pressed paper.
The Smiling Spider (1891) by Odilon Redon is the most delightful lithograph I’ve come across in a while. What do you think?
➜ Fund Bill Plympton's CHEATIN' on Kickstarter!
I did! I was lucky enough to see Plympton give a talk at the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco last year. He showed uncolored pencil animation from Cheatin’. It was beautifully done, and I for one want to see it completed. Click above if you do, too!
Tiny lineys. Ink and watercolor. (You can see these better at this post’s permalink.)
Just added several new postcards to my shop! Also, the big old print sale is still happening. Right now all prints are marked down 20-40% off!
P.S. You no longer need to go through PayPal to buy things from me. Now you can check out directly with your credit or debit card. Super easy!
Big print sale still happening in my shop! The print you see above is 30% off. All prints are 20-40% off through Jan. 18. Yay!

(Sorry for the double post! This looks better as a photoset, I think.)
A while back some of you asked about the difference between cold and hot pressed watercolor paper, so I doodled on a sheet of each.
The main difference between the two is that cold pressed paper is textured whereas hot pressed is satiny smooth, as you can see from the images above.
I’ve also noticed that paint dries more quickly on hot pressed paper, which you can see in blobs 6 and 7, especially.
I’m still getting used to the hot pressed stuff and try to save it for pieces that will have a lot of line work in them, which comes out more smoothly (like this piece or this one). I’m definitely more accustomed to working with the texture of cold pressed paper!
Do you have a preference?
