Cheetah

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.

Sprocket Weasel Bike Club

…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.

Upgraded Sermon Notes

The quality of my sermon notes has risen dramatically since mandatory quarantine online church started and I’m watching from my computer that has a Wacom Cintiq attached to it…

Old West Book Series

I’ve been super busy this year working on a really fun project. I can’t say too much about it because it has not gone to press yet, but in a nutshell, I’m cranking out a series of westerns as fast as I can… and loving it!

Historic Moments

Everyone in the U.S. was taught about the great moments in American history, but are you aware there were many similar events in Pigeon history… like that time George Squawkington crossed a frozen Delaware River.

Courtroom Drama

Odor in the court!

Asleep At The Wheel

The bulldozer was dozing… again.

Christmas Sermon Notes

Around Christmas time I was dutifully taking sermon notes at church and the preacher said that angel that appeared to Mary scared her pretty bad so it musta been one intimidating looking angel so I’m thinking he probably looked pretty much exactly like this. Ya gotta trust your sermon notes…

Parking Issues

This guy is desperately trying to get back to his spaceship before the parking meteor runs out. Another iPad/Procreate/sketchbook page.

Spaceman

Day three of dumping Procreate sketches onto this site. Here’s a spaceman… and you know what ya gotta do when you see a spaceman… ya gotta park in it, man!

Post Dump

Here’s my day two post dump. A random character from one of my sketchbook pages that I rendered out on an iPad with Procreate.

Outa Control

My social media is totally out of control. I’ve got some things posted here, I’ve got other things posted there, I’ve got some internet sites with absolutely nothing on them… probably not the best game plan for your “internet presence” so I’m going to do a post dump on this site and try to get things more centralized to this location. For the next few days I’ll be posting random stuff here that you may have already seen somewhere else on the internet and this is the first one… a quick sketchbook doodle colored on an iPad using the Procreate app.

More Sermon Notes

The other day at church the pastor was trying to explain that the Greek word for hate has a couple of different meanings. One is that you just kinda don’t like something… the other meaning is that full blown super dislike you have for something… like the New England Patriots… at least that’s what my sermon notes say… and ya gotta trust your sermon notes.

Importing Images Into Procreate

I’m old school when it comes to drawing. I still enjoy using a pencil and paper, but I love to apply color digitally. I’ve been posting 30 second videos on Instagram lately of some quick color sketchbook stuff I’ve been doing with the Procreate App and I keep getting asked the same question… how do you get your sketchbook pages into Procreate?

I’m using a scanner to get the sketchbook pages into my computer, formatting them a little bit in Photoshop and (I’m all Apple products) airdropping them onto my iPad Pro. There are a lot of ways to get your scanned files onto your iPad (Dropbox, Email, Cloud drives, etc.)… but the easiest way to get a sketchbook page loaded onto your iPad is to just take a picture of it with the camera thats on your iPad. Click, boom, done!

Now you just need to open Procreate, create and open a new canvas, open the actions menu (the little wrench) go to ADD and then INSERT A PHOTO and your sketchbook page will be in your photos. When it imports into Procreate you will have the option to resize it and then you can grab a digital brush and start slinging paint!

Lord Of The Flies

So the sermon at church the other day was about a buncha knuckleheads that were trying to insult Jesus by calling him Beelzebub because Beelzebub was some kinda creepy Phoenician fly god and flies are always buzzing around poop and these religious goobers thought that was a pretty good insult to hurl at Jesus and I’m pretty sure the preacher called Beelzebub the poop god and I could be wrong about that but that’s what it says in my sermon notes. My interpretation of Beelzebub and a Phoenician’s interpretation of Beelzebub may differ slightly.
