It’s that magical time of year here in Northeastern Indiana. Snow and ice as I drive home last night, cars off in ditches, the road to my house closed with emergency vehicles,  I’m sneezing and coughing the entire way and the radio tells me there’s another four inches of snow headed our way on Saturday. It’s looking like another fabulous winter wonderland in Hoosierville.

Albert Einstein said, “dancers are the athletes of God”. Who knows what Albert would have said about dancing centipedes…

It seems to me that after this last election, you just don’t see as many blue dogs on the street as you used to…

Everyone sing… the Hills are Alive… with the Hound of Music…

Impossibly Happy Children?

A while back, ImagineFX Magazine posted a little blurb about my web site and made a comment on the (quote) “impossibly happy children” I drew. Who knows where these people come up with their crazy ideas…

iPad Brushes Portrait 1

So last night I was trying to watch the Texas Rangers win the American League Pennant against the Yankees because I helped build the Rangers Stadium with my tax dollars back when we lived in Arlington and I wanted to see how my investment was turning out… anyway, I’m not such a big baseball fan (not enough violent collisions or vicious cross checks) and I was having trouble sticking with the game, so I started flipping back and forth between the game and the Pirates Of The Caribbean movie on another channel, but that wasn’t working for me either, so I whipped out my iPAD and did this little picture to keep myself awake until the end of the game… and a RANGERS WIN!

…by the way, this fellow was the guest speaker at our church on Sunday…

What I am discovering as I do these pictures on an iPad with a blunt little Pogo stylus, is that I have to work much looser than I usually do… and that’s probably not such a bad thing for me to do on a regular basis…

iPad Brushes Batman

I liked the way this one looked at this point, so I just stopped and said finished!

Here is one last experimental piece using the Brushes App on my iPad before I actually try to do something cool with the program. I think I have finally found my “go to” brush through this process, which was the main reason for doing these first pictures.

iPad Brushes Take Two

This is my second attempt to do a picture on an I-Pad using the Brushes App. Just like the first one I did, I way overworked it, but my primary goal has been to get familiar with the program and see how the brushes in this app react with no screen pressure sensitivity, so I go way past any reasonable stopping point in order to keep experimenting.

Old Number One

This was my very first attempt at making a Sock Creature.
