The Eclipsocalpse and surviving Adobe

The Eclipsocalpse and surviving Adobe

The apocalypse of May 20th 2020 - the mandatory emergence of Eclipse - won’t be a surprise to anyone now, but it represented a wrench in the gears to me.

He whipped up wondrous sketches with watercolour, pen and pencil in what appeared to be a few minutes, at least in YouTube time. It moved me toward emulation in the hopes of developing a rigourous daily sketch routine. Filling a tiny sketchbook has to be easier than filling a large one, right? I tried to track down the tiny sketchbook he used, even though I was a little wary of the maker. Mr. Rocafort used a small 365-day daily planner from Moleskine. The paper in Moleskine books is very good for ink
