Tools of the trade - drawing and illustration
Since so much of my work involves drawing on site, or with a client, my pencils travel with me in a wonderful leather roll-up case.
The tools range from wonderful drawing pens for ink work, to simple mechanic pencils for drafting. Art pencils in a variety of softness, to graphitone pencils that create watercolour washes. Top up with a rubber and sharpener and illustrations, storyboards, mock-ups and plein air sketches are possible anytime, anywhere!
