Colouring in Hexagons

A beautiful new book, bought in the bookshop attached to the wonderful MACBA – Barcelona’s Museum of Contemporary Art. It’s a notebook with HEXAGON PAPER. That’s right, tiny little hexagons just waiting to be coloured in or for a story to be written, a word in each hexagon. It’s made by ‘Paperways’. I’m excited about the book, and I hear that my delightful friend and fellow creative Angela Chick is using hers now too. We had a little hiatus because the books are so beautiful – you know when you put off using them because they’re so nice.

The notebooks can be bought on Amazon here or here on the InkThistle website – you can see the other lovely Paperways products here too.

Here’s what I have done so far. I seriosly need to get better at colouring within the lines. But those hexagons are very small you see. Drawing with my trusty Pilot 0.4, a very sharp pencil and my ‘Zig Kurecolor’ graphic pens which was given to me as the best Christmas present ever. More about those pens right here.

Working out which pens I can use and which I can’t. Some of them bleed too much into the paper you see. I wanted to use light and subtle colours only.

Don’t forget Blind Drawing

It’s great to remember Blind Drawing. I do quite a lot of this at work, but not much personally. I dragged out a roll of paper, got a selection of pens out and went for it. Here are my favourite parts. May this remind me to stop forgetting about Blind Drawing!
