Just a quick entry to post a little experiment to see if the raw line + graphic style of the canned series would work with my figurative stuff. I think it works just fine. Now I'm thinking my girls should have some arms so they can hold cans, bottles, etc. Maybe they could even stock some shelves.
Also, the image above is a short demo of microns vs. prismacolor liners under the solvent based chartpak markers. As you can see the prismacolors hold up much better than the microns. I've done other tests as well with watercolor and acrylics and the prismas always come out on top.
