New Work: Sunday Drive

It was so nice this afternoon, Bear and Rabbit (the very best of friends) decided to go out for a Sunday drive.

After watching him ink, and because I’ve been in a serious Calvin and Hobbes phase lately (Watterson’s brush work is gorgeous, especially in the later years), I decided I had to give the brush pen another try. So I borrowed a pen, cracked open the moleskin, and drew the first thing that came to mind. Here’s the inks sans color:
