• Started a new piece over lunch today. A new mix of mechanical pencils still using a Moleskine sketchbook. Reference is a video I took of a grasshopper checking me out a couple years ago.

  • Sometimes a sketch becomes a drawing. About 2.5 hours on this dragonfly. Moleskine sketchbook and Pentel Graphgear 1000 pencils (2H, HB, 2B)

  • Yep, going to be making stickers!

  • Had to rollback to iOS 12 on all my devices except one. 13 broke writing and drawing for me on both iPad and iPhone. I do understand it is a beta but was hoping for more. I am keeping it on an iPad Air 2 for testing.

  • So excited to be doing my second live drawing session at an Apple Store! The first was cut short by a fire alarm on Black Friday. What are the odds it will happen again 🤞

  • Not sure how this got here. Started with a human hand holding a giant frog’s eye. Maybe it will make its way into a future story.

  • Baby painted turtles in our pond!

  • Playing with water and wood this morning. Back to work tomorrow.

  • Playing around with some more animal sketches

  • Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians.

  • Rabbit sketching

  • A little morning sketch. ✍️

  • Sometimes all I have is 15 minutes. Quick poppy sketch on iPad using Procreate 🎨

  • Playing around with coloured pencils and toned paper 🎨

  • Sitting across from an elm tree at lunch today. The bark pulled me so I had to quickly sketch it. 🎨

  • Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. I was fortunate to be up before dawn so I could sketch outside. Then a wonderful breakfast with my wife a girls. Enjoy the day!

  • I spent my lunch hour just sketching a pine cone. Now I can take on the rest of the day.

  • Red admiral outside this morning. They have excellent camouflage but in the second pic you can see it chose to land on my shorts for a close-up. No wonder I have the nickname Dr Dolittle. Btw, this is common behaviour with red admirals.

  • Blandings turtle in our pond. This turtle is considered threatened in Ontario which makes this sighting even more special.

  • 4 for 4. This eastern swallowtail just emerged. My daughter is so happy because she had quarantined these last fall when they were in chrysalis form because she was worried they were comprimised by a wasp. They love dill, parsley and carrot tops. We should start seeing the monarchs arriving any day now.

  • Dropping the next episode in my podcast later today where I talk about drawing on the iPad and I mention this piece I am currently working on.

  • This is what an Easter swallowtail butterfly looks like less than a minute after emerging. This one slept outside all winter until just now. Nature is awesome! We have possibly 3 more coming. Monarch butterflies won’t be up to our area for maybe another week.

  • Well this is fun, my podcast made it to “New and Noteworthy” for a little bit in iTunes. It didn’t last long but that’s ok 😃 Next episode is Monday about drawing with the iPad.

  • Chickadee is finally finished. Drawn with Pentel Graphgear 1000 (2B, HB and 2H) on Bristol Smooth 9” by 12”
