In November, I was scribbling on large sheets of paper with Sharpies, and couldn't figure out what to do with them... until a few weeks ago. I plastered this one onto a canvas and painted over it and had fun, not worrying about wrinkles in the paper or anything else.
I've become more interested in just sketching people around me. Big, small, fat, thin, tall, short and everything in between. I guess I'm seeing a sort of beauty in paying attention to the details... Here's one from my sketchbook, done in Sketchbook Pro. i'm using my new Jot Classic stylus, and I love it. I don't love the clicking noise it makes as it bumps against the Gorilla Glass on the iPad, but, then again, I'm usually listening to a tWit podcast anyway, so it is more likely to annoy those around me.
This is for an article at the Big Hitter Club. I enjoyed doing this one, using a photo and doing my own type overlay. Not a traditional illustration, but it works for the purpose.
My mom has been attending a workshop with Bob Burridge this week, and she loves his work and his workshops. She's been sending me her "loose" acrylics and I've been enjoying seeing her work. This morning I thought...could I do that on my iPad? I'm posting one of hers and one of mine based on the look of what she sent to me, and you can be the judge. Does it work, or close, but just not the same...?
