You won't often see pics of men in this space, but here is a beauty. I've been watching Art Nation on the ABC lately and Laith McGregor was recent featured. you can watch the interview here.
What caught my attention was Laiths chosen medium...a biro.
Pens and biros are a great readily available tool to draw with and you can capture so much detail with this medium. I use a fine black biro to draw my greyscale illustrations, like the one in my banner at the moment and I'm always amazed by the detail and shading in the end result. I'm sure you would have done some phone side doodles, why not try it in your journal?
