KoshimeArt - At Home
A few people have been asking how my basic art setup is, so here it is in a simple 1-2-3.
1/ Tools: Good ole pen and paper, using mainly a hi-tec 0.4 black pen varying with variouw grey marker types. I vary between Prismacolours and Copic markers (as their greys are alot cooler than pantone's letraset version)
1.2 Rennaisance PDA (Sketchbook): The right sketchbook is vital to each artist, and I arm myself with a swarth of Fabriano Artist's Journal sketchbooks - which afford uniformity, optimal A5 size, great paper quality 192 pages of beautiful Ingres paper ) which are either
1/ Multi-toned (left)
2/ My favourite: blue cover with white and cream pages.
I find them great for any media, be it marker, ink, pencil, pastel, watercolour. Ideal for sketching or writing, this journal is sure to spark inspiration wherever you wander. A ribbon bookmark permits quick reference.
2/ Digital setup: Dell24" x 2 + A4 wacom + 2g ram Intel system
3/ Reference: A good collection of artbooks and history/architecture books
