Cache sketchbook with Sepia ink fountain pen

Yesterday I found myself waiting to meet with a friend. Where I was waiting had a magazine all about the 30 Days of Fashion. The first page was practice with contour drawing, which I love doing, I especially love David Hockney's contour portraits. And then the other page was a close up of the model's face practicing with different types of hatching.

I really admire the artist, France Belleville, of the wagonized blog and how she uses ink and hatches. So being inspired to improve my hatching, I have been experimenting with hatches in my sketchbook lately...
