One of the very first storybook jobs I ever got was a two book series about a little boy called Theodore Bump. Several decades later the author contacted me and asked if I would be interested in doing a third Theodore Bump book… absolutely! I just got an advance copy of the finished book.
I’ve been known to play a game or two on my phone when no one is looking. I’ve also been known to draw the characters in the games that I am playing on my phone when no one is looking. This is Gillie The Cook, a former pirate who is currently the leader of the Dewport Guard.
I did this on an iPad Pro using an Apple Pencil and Procreate.
I’ve been drawing on my iPad as a hobby for several years now and always kinda liked it… kinda… but I never really loved drawing on my iPad until now.
I heard a guy on YouTube say, “you HAVE TO HAVE some sort of paper textured screen protector on your iPad if you want to get the most out of your drawing experience,” and I thought, why not give that a try?

Bob thought it would probably be kinda fun to play cards with Chester… but everyone knew Chester was a notorious cheetah when it came to playing games.
…it was three in the morning, I couldn’t sleep, I wandered into my studio and the next thing I knew I had created a Strava Bicycle Club that I called Sprocket Weasels and it had a picture of a fox in a bowler hat? …maybe I was still asleep? …well, if you bike, run, walk or hike and want to keep track of your progress STRAVA is a pretty good app to use… and its free (unless you choose to upgrade it) so feel free to join The Sprocket Weasel Bicycle Club because thats free, too, and the nice thing about Sprocket Weasel Bike Club is you don’t even need to own a bike to join… we’ll take anybody.
