pmaynez | BBQ berbers shopping list

No miscellaneous drawings for me this 4 day Holiday weekend (Labor Day).  
This is a sketch/shopping list I made in preparation for a BBQ a few weeks back.  I really enjoy drawing and I also love the culinary arts, it’s an art form I can eat. 
Roughed it into place with light pencil, then hit it hard with the copic pens, markers and opaque white paint last.  Use index cards


prismacolor black

Last year I drew on every page of a landscape sketchbook with prismacolor black pencils only.

This was done during tiny bits of downtime throughout the day
