Portrait of the Day

In my pursuit to create a new piece everyday, I’ve gotten a little sloppy with any sort of story telling I may have been going for. However, I am trying to find time to just create something.

Done in Procreate App for IPad.

I can’t stop.

I seriously can’t stop playing around with Procreate for IPad.

This is a 1 hr portrait I did of Michael Rose of mademistakes.com. He is a truly talented digital artist I have been following on Instagram for some time now.

Today’s Watercolors

In the last twenty four hours, I have decided to take a small break from focusing on line work in my illustrations. Carefully choosing the right line weight and stroke can be mentally exhausting. These are the two pieces I’ve worked on in the past day.

Both illustrations were created in a drawing app for iPad, using a watercolor technique. Also, both are expected to be available as high quality 8×10 archival prints in the shop by the end of next week.

This weeks work.

Days of drawing with pen and paper are over for me. I have become completely enamored with “finger painting” on my Android phone. This week that completely changed with my brand spankin’ new iPad. Here are a few things I’ve been doing.
