Daily Drawing Adventures

Hi everyone.  Today I have a few views from my new 2018  drawing journal to share. I decided since I  got  some confidence last year keeping a drawing journal, I needed to do another one this year. BUT, I have a new tool to use this year. The tool isn't particularly exciting, but to me the results are.
It's my new fine line Uniball Vision Micro black pen which you can see in the first drawing.
A fine line pen is something I have never really chose to use.
Until now. 
Making thin lines rather than fat lines how changed the whole feel of my pages.
Or at least I think so. :)
So here's a few pages I've recently done.

Since my drawing journal is part of my art adventure for 2018, I am linking up to Art Journal Journey and this month's theme of New Year:New Adventure. 

A fine line pen doesn't always make my drawings any more than cartoons. :)

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekends. My daughter was home yesterday so I had a good day doing nothing productive except for hanging out with her. The hubby fixed some plumbing in our bathroom, so there is some picking up I need to do. And today the cold temperatures are back! Guess it will be a good day for some more arty adventures, once I clean up the repair work mess that is. :)
And with that I will close.
Thanks for visiting my blog. I always appreciate it.

Your drawing journal is fabulous, you are visibly having fun there. I could not exit without my uniball fine-liner, I have quite a variety in various colours, and I love them. Looking forward to seeing what you make in your fab journal. Have a great Sunday, hugs, Valerie

The Uniball pen looks nice. Looks like it would have a nice balance and feel. I love your illustrations. You elevated ordinary parts of your day to extraordinary. Enjoy your day today.

This looks like fun, and a great way to bring back memories of these days. I'm not familiar with any of these drawing tools, but I love seeing people try new things and take joy in their finds :)

What a wonderful new pen. I think it is beautiful the way you drew it, too. Your drawing skills are phenomenal.

Loved the Bomb Cyclone and the words and wishes school would close. Enjoyed seeing Maddie was through her surgery OK, too.

You are doing such a super job as our host at Art Journal Journey. We really appreciate all the wonderful posts you have created this month, and today, too.

Your drawing journal pages look fantastic, each one has so much to look at. I also like the liner pens, but really need to replace my near used up one.
Hope you had a good weekend.

I see what you mean about the fine line. It gives a certain emphasis and I love the look and these pages!
