Drawing with my fountain pen at A4 scale isn't working for me; I've spent the last few weeks struggling and filling my book with half-finished rubbish. Changing to carbon pencil seems to have done the trick. I'm not close enough to see the details, so using a bolder tool makes sense.

A friend of mine played a concert in a local church. I took my pocket sketchbook and pens.

This is the only drawing I've been satisfied with recently, for various reasons. One of the main problems I repeatedly have is 'the curse of the music stand', which is a terrible affliction of vision where important details are obscured by an annoying inanimate object.

The mic stand can also become infected during acute phases of torment. You know; just because it bloody can.
