Gel pen drawings

Gel pen drawings by Cathy Durso

I was a little bit too excited recently when I received a set of 100(!) gel pens as a gift. These pens brought me right back to my childhood impulses of first: making a small mark with every single pen to see the colors, second: arranging the pens in their holder into rainbow color order, and third: making instinctual, scribbly drawings with them. I was thrilled when I realized that about 1/3 of them had shimmery ink and another 1/3 of them had sparkly ink! After a lot of playing around I made a series of drawings, with the goal of using as many different colors as possible while still making beautiful, cohesive drawings. These drawings are currently available in my shop.
