• I did it! New podcast about the joy of drawing. Thanks to @macgenie and @manton for producing the final push I needed. drawinginspiration.fm

  • Now something different. This iPad drawing is of Rock Harbour Newfoundland. Spent a week there last summer. Hope to finish it tomorrow. 🎨

  • iPad Pro drawing. Yes, butterflies again :-) 🎨

  • Great Micro Monday episode today @macgenie I think this Microcast idea would be great @crossingthethreshold

  • Interesting that Instagram has now removed the “like” total for other people’s posts in my feed. Are they worried about Micro.blog 😉?

  • So @joshnicholas here is a video of the last piece using a single layer. Playing around. 🎨 🎥

  • It’s been a long winter for our neighourhood dragons. The young ones tend to not bother with us but they can create some mayhem when they play around on our hydro poles.

  • About 30 mins playing with dry brush in Procreate app on iPad with Apple Pencil. No reason for the subject choice. Except I wanted white on black with a piece from memory. 🎨

  • Spent more time on this drawing. Been so busy with work. Also, been working through the final touches of my first podcast “Drawing Inspiration” where I talk about all aspects of drawing. 🎨

  • Our mergansers, wood ducks and mallards are back in the pond. One of the female mergansers is checking out a duck house I built. I have five up around the pond. Not a great pic because I had to go full zoom then digital crop.

  • I’m taking an online natural history illustration course. Beginning week 2. Finding it a little frustrating because I feel like I need to deconstruct my style. Maybe it is more because I have so much other creative stuff I’m not getting done. This course was a last minute thing.

  • Started playing around with the idea of drawing the osprey from the nest cam you shared @Ron . Not sure I will finish this iPad drawing but we will see. 🎨

  • Spending Sunday teaching my 16 year old daughter how to change out the winter tires for summers was a joy. Snow day today due to freezing rain is nature just being cruel.

  • Spent some time with a local printer this morning working with different archival paper/ink. Sorting out the details for my first limited edition print run. This was a look at three different digital drawings.

  • Here is a blog post about the butterflies series of iPad Drawings I accidentally created which includes all the drawings and time-lapse videos.

  • Love the video support @manton ! Seems to work well out to Wordpress but I guess Mastodon is a challenge. Also, how to view videos within the micro.blog app?

  • Here is another video time lapse from a previous iPad drawing of a butterfly. These are automatically created in the Procreate app. Should I post these in future? Do you find it informative/entertaining?

  • Excited about video support in Micro.blog via the latest iOS update. Of course, my first test will be an iPad drawing time lapse :-)

  • The final in my iPad butterfly drawing series. Spent more time on this one but still not the level of detail I would normally do. I have a bunch of graphite to get done over the next 6 weeks as part of a course I am taking. 🎨

  • Busy but was able to get this lazy panda done today. Drawn on iPad using Procreate. 🎨 🐼

  • I am quite interested in the new Logitech Slim Folio Keyboard for the 2018 iPad Pro. Backlit, shortcut keys and a functional sketch mode make this very appealing. As an artist and writer, this may be the best solution for me but I will see what reviewers will say.

  • Drawing on a train 🎨

  • Latest addition to my iPad drawing series. This one was harder because I was on a train at the time. Had a chance now to finish it in the Union Station lounge. I haven’t spent my normal amount of time with regard to detail because that attention is for the chickadee. 🎨

  • Always so happy to see the Trinity church when I visit Toronto. Brings back great memories of listening to the Cowboy Junkies album recorded here.

  • Finally had a chance to try a Microsoft Studio today at the Microsoft store. Pen didn’t feel great. Screen was big but the drawing apps were awful. Flipping the pen over to undo/erase felt like 5 steps backwards vs two finger undo on many iOS apps. Probably not a fair review.
