Short short hand

 Some quick graphic notes from my sketch book. Always trying to make it simple, and always falling short from the mark.  I would love to say everything with three brush strokes, simple clean and direct. To communicate like the old japanese brush masters.

Qualche rapido appunto grafico dal mio sketchbook. Cerco sempre di farla semplice e fallisco sempre l'obiettivo. Vorrei poter esprimere tutto con tre colpi di pennello, semplici puliti e diretti. Per comunicare come gli antichi maestri del pannello giapponesi.

  1. It's truly a relief you say that, Frank. Most modern comic artists waste so much time on tiny cat-like scratches and crosshatching to disguise their artistic weaknesses. You, on the other hand, are a rare breed much like the greta Alex Toth, striving for simplicity, saying volumes with the fewest of lines. Deceptively simple, I say, and most assuredly appreciated.
