Drawing with pen and ink is liberating (see post 1.29.11) but drawing with a stick is like flying.  By stick I mean something like a shish kabob stick.  The pen limits you to moving only down or sideways, and if you’re too wild, it will sputter and balk on you. But the humble stick knows no restrictions.  It will dance along with you any way you like to move—up, down, sideways, fast and slow.

These drawings were made with a stick dipped in non-waterproof sepia ink.   The poses were ten to fifteen minutes.
