Just an update about my iPad

Hey guess what will be coming back soon: DAILY SKETCHES!! There may be a new iPad, as well as as new stylus and new dodo case in my future. I’ll be upgrading my stylus to a Jot Touch – I hear great things about it with the iPad Air 2  and my favorite drawing app for iPad, Procreate.

Hear that, THIEF! I’VE MOVED ON! I WILL KEEP SKETCHING DIGITALLY, despite your wicked ways! <weeps silently>

I will post when my new buddy (case, iPad, stylus)  is all good and ready, hopefully with a review of my own. There weren’t many reviews for the Jot Touch, at least when it came to what I was interested in knowing.

Aurélien Chevaleyrias – Adonit Jot Touch with Pixelpoint quick review – This review was very informative about the history of how far adonit has come, the actual size of the tip, charging, and much more.

Ben Frank Art – Jot Touch Pixelpoint Review+Procreate : This review was great for showing me what I wanted to see – different brushstrokes, how bad the lag was, the visual distance between the “surface” I was drawing on and the tip of the pen.

Until later!

Daily Sketches 25 – MerBear and Fancy Ponytail

Sorry there were no posts last week. My dayjob in advertising can get demanding, and I had very little time for anything but designing, designing, designing.
I’ll be traveling to a friend’s wedding in a few days, OVERSEAS! I’ll will do my best to keep these sketches daily, but I might have to post them all when I get back – depends on the kind of internet I’ll be able to snag over there.
So, until then, this little guy finds living under the sea unBEARabel without his besties.

And a friend of mine with mystically gorgeous hair allowed me to photograph her majestic ponytail for reference for my DailyObservation.

Daily Sketch – Ruby Milk

It’s joy to be able to play with pressure sensitivity on the iPad with my new Intuos Creative Stylus! I really got to go to town on the hair. See those thicks and thins? Thats from REAL pressure sensitivity, not a speed ratio. Of course it’s nothing like the Wacom tablet because you can change how sensitive you like your surface, and I have mine set to rather high – also nothing beats pen and paper, but dang this is really enjoyable to undo, redo, and have layers and PRESSURE SENSORS!!!. Just awesome!

Tired but happy

Still chugging along. Work during the day for clients, flexing our advertising and design chops with a great group of people. Working at night with moving into the new place so I can get back to doing my art, and meet my personal deadlines for my art shows coming up.

So: tired because of all the work, crazy schedule, and lack of sleep, but happy because the kindness of family and friends is the best.

I will have photos of a finished studio…soon…SOON.

Sketchin on the choo choo – Skulls!

Playing with the “mirror” draw effect in sketchbook pro. For the symmetrically challenged like myself, this is faaaantastic! I draw only one side and the other reflects automatically – sweeet!

I have been working out the idea of a sugar skull coloring book with some educational blurbs about Dia De Los Muertos, so you might see a few more of these skully sketches 😉
