I had the chance to sketch quite a bit while I was in Zurich. These are some ink drawings I did while visiting Museum Reitberg, a 15-minute walk from my hotel. I started with my trusty pencil, but quickly got bored, so I switched to a Pentel brush pen I picked up recently. (The label says it's gray ink, but even when watered down, it still looks fairly black).

Masks are one of my favorite things to draw in museums; they provide the rendering challenge of any 3D object while adding an exaggerated personality to every mark. They're also a great source of inspiration when designing your own characters. I plan on stealing as much as I can from these.
