• Most likely the last WIP I post. A few more hours left, but getting close now. Focus has been the collar but now I need to bring out more white fur 🎨

  • More detail done on the mouth and was able to tackle the buckle. I also reworked his left side of the face. Going to do some live drawing tomorrow probably on YouTube. I will confirm a time once I get a sense of things. 🎨

  • A couple more hours on this graphite drawing today. Should be done by the end of the weekend. Loving graphite again. 🎨

  • I typically draw using mechanical pencils (when not on the iPad 😊 ) but I am trying these special lumograph pencils. They are designed to preserve the blacks while also allowing for layers. 🎨

  • I had about a half hour of free time today at lunch so I decided to try and see what I could do with a single brush type in Procreate. Not my typical kind of work. Good to explore 🎨

  • Another drawing update. Next, I need to insert an eye. It was covered by fur in the original. Should be fun. 🎨

  • Here’s a time lapse of my blue morpho butterfly drawing on the iPad youtu.be/1DcUzBNQO…

  • Got some more work done on this schnauzer. Finding my groove with graphite but can’t stop the digital work on the iPad. I think I may pull a creative muscle soon. 🎨

  • My iPad drawing of the blue morpho butterfly is complete. I took the reference photo a couple years ago at the Butterflies Go Free exhibit in Montreal. 🎨

  • I am back to graphite on paper for this commission. This is how it starts. 🎨

  • Had some time to kill before an evening meeting. Drawing butterflies. 🎨

  • I’ve been listening to Micro Mondays and now @macgenie has my seriously thinking of doing a Microcast. Got a couple of ideas. It’s been nearly 25 years since my radio show. We’ll see if I can keep it to 5-10 mins :-)

  • This shihpoo is now complete. Took way longer than plannned. I also worked off an Instagram pic which didn’t have the detail I needed. I learnt way more about fur, created a few brushes and purchased a couple along the way. Very good experience. Now onto my next piece.

  • ‪Installed Paperlike screen protector on my iPad Pro 12.9 2018. Resistance when drawing and does reduce fingerprints. But when drawing on a white canvas, the textured rainbow effect is annoying. I will give it a day or two. ‬

  • I am back in college after 30 years. This time it’s to sponsor 2 projects for the final term for 12 students (2 teams). Excited to have met them for the first time tonight. Also, so very happy to see 8 of 12 are women 👍 Ladies learning code!

  • This weeks throwback Thursday is from when I did the design, testing, manufacturing and marketing in the human safety industry. The modeling bit was a one trick pony :-) circa 1992 8F9BEDA5-5273-4F88-BDC4-41C774A76559.jpg

  • Added a new drone to the household. My daughters will appreciate the Scratch and Javascript integration of this model.

  • Work gets in the way of passion. My first week back to work after the holidays. Had a couple evenings to get more done on this Shihpoo 42BCF317-E0C5-42FC-9EC9-F199B4809B41.jpg

  • A bit more work done on this Shihpoo this evening at Starbucks. So many layers and still need to give him a chin.

  • Some more work done. Far more challenging than I expected and so much more work to do. Sharing more WIPs is one of my 2019 goals. I feel like people need to see the steps and the struggle. No magic here but truckloads of trail and error. Love every minute on this iPad. 4C887DA3-EF0B-4319-ACE8-9F9D6B96557E.jpg

  • I guess I am going through a dog phase. This guy has his own Instagram account. Very quick sketch on iPad. Adding a bit of colour tomorrow. 24CD42D9-C139-4DAE-B356-B2DF484273EA.jpg

  • Drawing everyday won’t produce something new but when it does, I will post it. Today I was able to put 90 mins into the piece using Procreate on iPad.

  • Building on last year year, here are my creative goals for 2019. Any goals you want to share? - Draw/sketch at least 15 mins/day - Inktober - Try watercolours - NaNoWriMo - Finish my first novel - Publish a short story - Read 16 books

  • I enjoyed Bandersnatch. It was a flashback to a game I built simulating the trench run from Star Wars. It was on a Vic-20. I was so happy for sprites on the C-64. Also, built a decent adventure game. I really wanted a ZX-81 but never had the chance.

  • I was able to get out for a little drone footage today. Not very creative with the shots as the freezing rain was coming. youtu.be/cYa5-GBVY…
