This is my attempt at a montage illustration (the type of thing that Robert McGinnis or Sergio Toppi do much, much better). Ideally it'd be the cover to some trashy Baroque/Gothic romance paperback with an embossed gold title along the bottom. Below it is the original page of sketches that it came from. Obviously, the sketch is far better than the finished inked piece. Ain't that always the way!

Here's some recent sketches drawn with a set of Faber Castell PITT artist brush pens. I've never really found a pen I like to sketch with as much as a pencil but that was before I'd tried these. 1 black pen and 3 shades of grey. They're a joy to draw with. I liked them so much... I bought the company! (Not really, I just bought another 3 pens).
