Cafe Rhyblick Basel

Further sketches from nice Basel locations: details of the Cafe Rhyblick, where I drank my first Ovomaltine ever, two cash terminals of the Basler Kantonalbank (my first and only sketch I did inside a bank! An authentic Swiss Bank!) and an original swiss balcony that I saw from the window of my girlfriend's apartment.

I love your drawing.
Are you a freelance?
Which brand and size of pens do you usually use? I like those with thin lines...
I read your post of" More crazy tin toys "in 12-Mar-2007.
How do you strive a balance between drawing joyfully and meticulously?

I often try hard to draw as same as the object but it turns out a lack of style...

Thanks for the comment! Yes, I'm a freelance (illustrator and comicartist).
At that time in Basel I'd usually used the FABER-CASTELL Finepen 1511 Document (a kind of fineliner). Because after a certain time the black of the lines isn't really black anymore (perhaps only on my sketchbook paper (?) it's rather a very very dark purple), I now prefer STAEDTLER Pigment Liner, a waterproof, lightfast and document proof fineliner for drawing & writing (with different line widths).
The balance between drawing joyfully and meticulously is difficult to achieve. Don't think about it too much, just draw! Good luck! :-)
