Livestreaming Soccer

This fall I took a self-paced class in page design from the wonderful teacher Roz Stendahl.  You should all take classes from her.  Seriously.

Anyhow, as part of my sketchbook keeping, I'm going to try to be more intentional about the composition of my pages.

So here is a quick sketch I did one evening when I watched a livestream of my nephew's soccer game on the computer.  It shows my screen porch, the woods behind, and the libation I enjoyed while watching.

I used a new pen I've just gotten.  A Hero bent nib calligraphy pen, with DeAtramentis document brown ink.  I'll do more work with both of them to get more familiar with how they work.

I enjoyed capturing the late summer moment.  I enjoyed intentionally playing a bit more with the spacing of the image and the text on the page.

On thing that Rox taught us is that simply paying attention to margins, especially gutter margins, can help a page look more attractive and intentionally designed.  So that's where I've started.  Margins.

One baby step at a time!
