IPad Paintbrush

Posted Jan 2014

Well, spent a litl more time on this one. Still on the plane, but this time I included the Paintbrush tool. Takes longer to use that than the Pencil tool, so I hope I won't be tempted to use it at Parties if I'm working for a Client who wants as many products as possible.

Here's the magazine reference, the IPad outline, the IPad picture including Paintbrushing. Chagrinned because I wanted to focus on producing quickly, but, well, this is my time-off. In the last picture I even stuck an extra Layer of pink underneath it all. Not necessary, but, well, isn't Art for Fun? Not production. We're not like, handing out hotdogs at Parties. I like doing Artwork for real.

IPad PARTY Caricatures

Posted Jan 2014

I recently spent a week in CAlifornia. Quickly drew these Caricatures on my IPad from a magazine on the plane.

Last year, I only used my IPad for Studio work, because I didn't feel that I was drawing on the IPad quickly enough for Party work. But I feel determined to do PARTY Caricatures Digitally on the IPad this year. I like what I drew on the plane. It was quick enough, so the next step is to look into printing and projecting the pictures at a Party.

I decided that IPad Caricatures don't have to look like Paper Caricatures any more than Paper Caricatures have to look like Oil Portraits. This poster-like style feels just right.

Digital Artwork

Posted Aug 2013

I enjoy using the new Art Supplies. Any one Studio picture can flip between IPad's ArtStudio, Computer's PhotoShop, Paper with Markers and Colorsticks, The Lightbox..... And I still use Pencils with Erasers. Different Supplies are best for handling different aspects of the Artwork.

For instance, I prefer using PhotoShop for Warping Text, but I prefer using IPad for Coloring. So I have to send a picture back and forth. I discovered that it's easy to Export the picture directly from the IPad ~ there's a dropdown menu for 'Export by email'. But I have to save the picture to my Desktop and then pick it up from the Desktop if I want to email it from PhotoShop. Extra fussy-steps.

So I wrote a note to myself about that. And I chose to keep the note because I want to remember how easily I made the Camophlage-style background when I wrote that note.

The Artist has new toys.

My First IPad Job

Posted Jun 2013

I did it. ALL on the IPad. Success!

It wouldn't have been my choice to use this long horizontal format, but it's what my client requested. I didn't mind. As long as I had a chance to make it all happen on the IPad, I was Focused!

She wanted the invitation to fit the horizontal 4" x 8", emphasizing the man's white tuft of hair coming out of his left side, including the 40.5, and in the style of a black/white picture that she sent me. And Very specific instructions as to Color and Design. So the design of this picture isn't mine. I just did the Caricature-Silhouette and, yes this is the best part, I did all the IPad manipulations. This was my perfect for my first official IPad job. Because I could focus on the IPad. I was pleased that I was able to follow all her directions as well as draw the Caricature on the IPad.

Of course, I had to cover over my client's personal information before showing you the Artwork. to protect their privacy:

and I already have another digital Caricature job to handle in the Studio. Much more complicated, though. So I probably won't do it All on the IPad. Still, I feel empowered. I am looking forward to using the IPad whenever it would be appropriate.
