• I did a little sketching and painting on the paddle board this past weekend. It was my first time doing this on the board. It was quite fun and meditative. 🎨

  • I had Rob McCallum back on the podcast to talk about his work on Star Trek Discovery as well as zombies. We also talked iPads and the Procreate app. drawinginspiration.fm/33

  • Finished this birb. Prints of this piece and others will be part of an upcoming Patreon. 🎨

  • A recent sketch I did of a chipmunk. Playing with focal planes 🎨

  • Ok, last one. This was about an hour. Need to get back to graphite 😁 🎨

  • Pulled this off the shelf at lunch and decided to see what I could. Probably will do another one. Loved it when I was a kid. 🎨

  • Started a new chipmunk. In this case I am incorporating a background as well as focal planes with nose, eyes and lichen on tree (to come) in focus. Still a work in progress 🎨

  • I got out for my first urban sketch of the year. Too hot to finish. I will go back for the watercolor.

  • This commission is done. β€œJust one more maple seed” is 6” by 9” on Strathmore Bristol Smooth. Drawn with Pentel Graphgear 1000 .3 mm 2H and 2B. Prints to come in future.

  • Sometimes it’s fun just to start with a line then another and see what happens. Warm-up before working on a cute chipmunk. 🎨 ✍️

  • A little more work done on the chipmunk commission. 🎨 ✍️

  • Sometimes random sketching outside can get a little weird 🎨 ✍️

  • Finished this chipmunk pencil drawing. This was practice for a commission. The final will have him in a different pose :-) 🎨 ✏️

  • Did a couple of sketches with a Bic pen today. Kinda fun. Flashback to high school 🎨

  • I also started this chipmunk in graphite as part of a commission 🎨

  • A quick 15 minute sketch of a polar bear using Procreate on the iPad 🎨

  • Finished this graphite sketch of a nuthatch. Such a sweet little bird. 🎨

  • Back to human anatomy practice with this piece. Drawn using Procreate on the iPad. Used an online photo as reference. Going to be working on a few animal and insect pieces next.

  • Our first family of mergansers have emerged from their nest box.

  • Playing around with anatomy again. This sketch was about 50 minutes in Procreate 🎨

  • Playing with the MaxPack watercolor brush pack for Procreate. No idea what this is. Stream of consciousness doodling. 🎨

  • Finished this snow leopard pencil sketch today. So hard finding the time to draw during these last few weeks. 🎨

  • Started this snow leopard today. Graphite 3” by 5”.

  • A digital drawing I did from a 2.5 hours live draw as part of a β€œsciart” series I have been doing. I draw while speaking to a science expert about the animal or insect I am drawing. 🎨
