cartoon life: Cycling advice to my neighbourhood kids.

Advice to the girl riding her bike along Windsor Ave this afternoon.

Do up your helmet strap. It won’t protect your brain from a concussion if it isn’t on your head. 

Slow down. You’re riding on the sidewalk. Doh.

The largest proportion of cycling accidents happen at intersections. I see cars slow roll through that stop sign all the time. 

Speaking of intersections, every driveway you scooted by is an intersection. A cyclist speeding along the sidewalk is the last thing a driver is looking for.

In a fight between flesh and steel, flesh always loses.

Trying out the collection feature at G+. It seemed like a good place to gather a bunch of cat art drawings in one place.

Things Are Good: Curiosity (and art) is Addictive

A new theory based on some old research is that our drive to figure things out can be as addictive as doing drugs. If you’ve ever had to deal with a complex problem and found the solution you know that particular feeling of success.

it turns out that our brains react to learning new things (which solve a problem we have) in a similar way we react to opiates.

Biederman hypothesized that knowledge addiction has strong evolutionary value because mate selection correlates closely with perceived intelligence. In other words, addictions and cravings might stem from this need for knowledge. Even (Read more…)

cartoon life: purry lump cat purrs

Rather than keeping this boy on my chest and face, where he prefers to sleep, we’ve come to an arrangement where he stretches out along my chest, on my arm against the wall of the couch. He makes this long strange sausage shape.

Things Are Good: A Competition and Journal Looking Into Philosophy and Games

Games are a very popular cultural medium with a reputation for not being very “deep”. Game Praxis is a new project I’ve co-founded to encourage game makers and players to ask big questions through gameplay. It’s a game competition and a journal focused on philosophy and games.

The goal is simple: generate more interesting content about how games can be used to explore bigger questions. For the first run of Game Praxis pre-existing games can be submitted so if you’ve already made a game that you think should be considered you can do so.

The Game Praxis mission:

cartoon life: Spots and splats all Mixed.

It’s not my usual habit to post a Mix from Paper by 53 here. Doodlinby posted the frames. Someone posted some watercolour spots in the frames. This seemed the next obvious choice.

cartoon life: Four from life drawing at ArtsCentre

 

First, a cropped image from Paper. Done with the Pencil stylus. 

 I wanted to experiment with Zen Brush, as I found my NomadBrush stylus. Zen Brush app has surface response where you need only lay down a flat fat finger for the tool to respond to the ‘pressure’ and draw full and fat strokes. The brush tempers the response to a more sensitive and smaller range of widths.  

 

Nice bit of scratchy back and forth using the Nomad. It’s nice to push and pull the tones in the Sumi ink style tools. And mixing the (Read more…)

cartoon life: Little lost cat

Passed a 2 or 3 year old black Tom on the walk home. He seemed quite uncertain about where he was, but responded to a quick sit down talk about how he’d better get away from that busy street and find his way back home.

cartoon life: Reclining. Considering

One sketch from today’s figure drawing session at #ldnont Arts Project. Fresh, quick and a good likeness. In retrospect I enjoyed dropping in the big black charcoal by accident at the background, and just going with it.
