black ink work

i ruined a really nice drawing of vic, one where she's eating cereal on the sofa in a dressing gown, by sketching a character getting some tattoos done. the Sharpie marker went through the page and fucked the image on the other side. i didn't realise i left my sketchbook open on the reverse of the nice drawing...
anyways, i liked the new drawing and enlarged it up to A2 mountboard. sharpies and markers were go. i decided to make it for a mate, carlos benjamin, who lives down the road yet i hardly make time for. so he became one of the chaps in the drawing, getting ink relating to his fixie fixation (har) and what not.
so, heres the pics, from sketchbook to completion.
he posted a real nice post on his blog about it, here.
