Trying my hand at "digital painting" (though most of this came from the scanned pencil drawing).

Looks like a tableau ready for action!

Zen Brush on iPad. Still haven't solved riddle of how to get these drawings into Blogger from the iPad/iPhone. Have to send 'em to laptop for uploading as it stands now. Any tips on solving this would be most appreciated!

Now I'm not posting this 'cuz it's a good drawing.

It's not.

But it's up!

SketchBook Pro "sketch" done on iPhone.

I'm learning the key to success in this modern world is bending technology to your will...

...or capitulating immediately.

Got an iPad. Got the Zen Brush app. Got to work.

(I'm OK with sharing half-baked art.)

Still on a Kirby Kick. These are from his old work with Joe Simon, before he really started drawing solid figures. It's bracing to see how "straight" they look when I reinterpret them--the lady looks like Buscema to me, which is totally disappointing! I want to look like Kirby! The man is better, but he looks Jack circa '62, where my source is Jack circa '47 (when he was still a little wobbly--due as much the speed he had to draw 'em, I guess).

(and think o' that...a gap of '47 to '62?!? And those 15 years span the part of his career BEFORE the Marvel explosion. It makes you think!)

I've been experiencing computer woes. Reduced to photographing drawings and importing 'em that way. I'm trying to get myself sorted.

A kid stuffing Pooh in his pants. Spotted mid-afternoon unloading a moving van. In pajamas. With Pooh.

The things you see in Orange County....

Verdict is in:

Blair hates the iPhone 4.

Let me emphasize that:

she HATES the new iPhone 4.

And yes, the reception is bad, no matter how (or even if) you hold it.

However, the camera part of the phone is unbelievably better.


But overall, very troubling....

Don't you think it would be a better world if all the classical music programmers dropped the chamber works in their rotation (from piano trio up to string ensemble) and replaced 'em with some kind of choral work?

(This is the sort of thing I'd tweet about.)
