This is a personal journal documenting my studies in art - mainly just a place to keep notes and to organize my thoughts better than I could in a handwritten journal (you can't do a search in a paper journal, or post live links). My ultimate goal is oil painting, but I want to start with developing my grasp of the basics in drawing.

Bridgman + Inkadoodledoo
Here you can see my solution to the 'transfer paper' problem I was having (did I mention that? Whenever I was drawing on a left page the drawings on both pages behind it would cross-transfer onto each other). I folded over a piece of copier paper, trimmed it to fit, and slip it under the left page. Afterwards I just erase both sides of it and re-use over and over. Plus I always Spectrafix each page - some great stuff yo!
I'm still just doodling around with ink really - I know eventually I'm going to have to start actually (gasp!) planning my ink drawings. It's not like pencil or charcoal where you can think as you draw. Maybe eventually it does get like that with ink, but I won't be there for some time yet.
