Pam Carriker here and excited to be part of the 2012 Sketchbook Challenge Team!
I love to use my Pitt Artist Pens for doodling. They come in a variety of nib types and sizes so mark making with them is fun and interesting! Here I used a coaster for inspiration, layering images on top of each other to create dimension.
Pitt Brush Tipped Pens in the Shades of Grey have long been a favorite doodling tool because you can create depth with the different shades.
And because they are waterproof india ink you can use water soluble pencils or other wet media right over the top. I used Inktense pencils for this.
I loved the simple scroll in the coaster design so I continued to play with it and my pens.
Doodle inspiration can be found all around. Just look for interesting shapes and textures in everyday objects, doodle them with black pen and then use the graduated shades of grey to add dimension.
