People always disappoint me.

Ya know, I’m constantly learning that despite how people seem on the outside it’s certainly not a clear reflection of how they truly are on the inside. Some people are merely a facade with a very shallow bottom.

After mowing, trimming, and mulching for six hours in ridiculous heat today I’m treating myself to a cold beverage, or three, with friends. Cheers! #woodfordreserve #bourbon #campfirestories #thismighthurtalittle

Although I’d rather be standing in a beautiful stream right now I’m still cool with casting + practicing into an empty hole in the ground just outside my office. #flyfishing #takingwhatevericanget #yeahimthatguy #therapy

Anonymous asked: Hi Brian, love your work. What make of pens do you use? Make, 0.3, 0.5, 0.7? Many thanks

Hey, anon… thanks so much! I like SKB and super cheap Bic ballpoint pens. They all sort of suck (and they all blob) but you have to get used to the way they work and react to different kinds of paper and etc. I prefer the 0.5’s or 0.7’s. The key isn’t the pen but rather getting used to what feels right for you and making it work for your taste. I’d suggest trying several types and working with them for a while to make the choice. Hope this helps.

Anonymous asked: It would be absolutely amazing if you could post a video of you drawing sometime. I'd love to see the way you create, like where you begin and how you work!

Many thanks! Yeah, I really need to get on that. I’ve had several requests for this so I need to make it happen soon. Just wish life would slow down and let me catch up. Just a little.
