Attempted a drawing of Penrose Stairs. Came out a little wonky. The trick is that the shape of each of the step tops should be the same. Mine were a bit off, which throws the perspective off a bit. A fun drawing to try though.

Drew my perspective from the plane ride home. Didn’t sketch out in pencil first, just drew with the pen. Not great.

Was in LA for Thanksgiving with family. They have a 2 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback. Beautiful dog. Not such a great drawing though. Didn’t spend a lot of time on it, and didn’t have a good reference (the dog didn’t like standing still).

Drew the Taj Mahal. Love the symmetry of it. Lots of great elements to pick out and draw.

Wanted to draw some crystals. Sort of bit off more than I could chew, the transparency and all the different textures proved difficult to draw in just ink. I think it looks ok, but it got a bit sloppy on the right.

Map of the continental United States. I’ve drawn Alaska before, so didn’t feel it was super important to include it. The right side was waaaay harder than the left side, though, both sides were pretty difficult. It’s recognizable, but I still see parts that I’m not happy with.

Wanted to do a detailed drawing of my hands. Had Jon take the reference photo, since my hands were occupied :). Like the way it turned out, though the thumbs are a bit off, and I wish I had placed it in the frame better.

A two-page noodle doodle. I’ve done a few of these before. I didn’t try too hard to make this look like something like I did last time. Kind of wanted it to represent my dog, there are two ears in the top left corner, but overall, just a fun pen control exercise really.

The Star Trek: TNG U.S.S. Enterprise. Lots of window details I probably could have spent more time on. Really fun to draw though!

Cross-cut of a redwood tree. Tried playing with texture and line with the marker. I think it turned out ok.
