cartoon life: Odd tuxedo on green

A Matisse-like cubism. Made with the earlier version of Tayasui Sketches. The new version has some interesting new brushes, and as I was browsing the gallery I noticed this, which seems a bit more interesting than when I did it. I don’t pop into Sketches very often. Like most of the other painting apps, it seems ...

PostArctica: The Searchers

I like discussing influences which may also be a way of simply saying I am not ashamed to admit where it all comes from….anyway, took a shot of a “back yard” on de l’Eglise about 6 weeks ago and it has been simmering in my “recent” pile ever since. When I went back to this ...

cartoon life: Black cat on the floor

Auryn ink watercolour direct brutal drawing and scrubbing away at erasing. I wish the app had a more sensitive eraser, sponge, or tissue mode to erase or pick up too much colour. Update: in the interim, the developer of Auryn Ink has indeed added a more sensitive softer eraser option. Very nice. Filed under: art

cartoon life: Back to the masters.

Albrecht Dürer 1490 Portrait of the Artists Father from Uffizi catalog pg 166. I go back to this catalog to draw a few things that catch my eye, and shame, no, rather challenge myself. 🙂 as there is just no way I can make realistic drawings. Filed under: art

cartoon life: Black cat on green

Poking my drawing finger into Concepts app. I have many. Many are neglected and not drawn in. Some are kept for specific tools or effects. Some get pokes every once in a while. and just like there are many shades of users, Concepts is well named, as it seems well suited to designers. Filed under: art

PostArctica: Today’s Walk

Went to the Point today, not a long walk but a good one. Marguerite Bourgeoys Park. “The Site of this park was once part of the farm acquired by Marguerite Bourgeoys from Sieur Francois Leber in 1668” Random telephoto shot of sculpture in the park. Further up Wellington. Les Filles du Roi. Much better shot than ...

cartoon life: The gravity of clouds

A time-lapse scene of clouds sweeping in like waves and water against a mountain coastline. There really is no difference between clouds and water except for density and time. And the edge, the border, the density, all just a matter of gravity and the passing of time. The nature of the entire universe; time and ...

Four cats. One box lid. Filed under: art Tagged: box, Cat

cartoon life: Tuxedo cat and paw

Okay. I think I got it.  A number of other in-process, well, maybe they were done, but, oh, I don’t know versions are viewable at samupressart Tumblr. All in various stages of goodness. But I think this one balances all the tricks quite nicely. Filed under: art Tagged: apps and filters, Cat, tuxedo cat

cartoon life: Tuxedo cat with paw.

I think this is maybe finally done. Procreate, Popsicolor, and bunch of other apps. Maybe not. That black is too…. too…… black. Filed under: art

PostArctica: Dirt

  Dirt Dirt is an ongoing visual project that addresses ideas concerning the city in the period before the Arctic collapse (Polar Caps buh bye). It is really just a thin layer of dirt that supports humanity on Earth and the vulnerability of our ecosystem becomes more transparent, yet politically barely acknowledged, with each passing ...

cartoon life: My allergy season begins

As soon as the rain in the Spring stops making whatever so heavy and knocking it out of the air, then when it settles into the ground and causes something to revel in blooming in the damp ground, I feel like this. “What a lovely strange little drawing”, I’ll say to myself in a few ...
