cartoon life: The waiting room.

As we get older we spend more and more time in these places. Sometimes the chairs are comfortable. And when you have been called off to the optometrists, there isn’t much to do but look around.Filed under: art . . . → Read More: cartoon life: The waiting room.

cartoon life: Calico flump

Our dear calico puts in an appearance once in a while. Here, she stopped creeping about long enough, before she noticed me looking at her, for me to capture her delightfully unformed flumpfy shape. Parts drawn from memory.Filed under: art . . . → Read More: cartoon life: Calico flump

cartoon life: Foot-bone connected to the mouth bone.

Here is a warning for everyone from our archaeologically ancient forebearers. A footbone, a genuine, real, ancient footbone. And remarkably, it wasn’t found next to an anklebone. No sir, it was found planted firmly in the mouth bone.Filed under:… . . . → Read More: cartoon life: Foot-bone connected to the mouth bone.

cartoon life: Old tuxedo’s wild dream

There are some very nice apps. They all seem to be about 90% perfect. The red in ZenBrush just wasn’t right. Too blood-like. The app needs more colour options. More like watercolour palletes: it can be limited. Zen Brush needs more colours, and I’d like an ink density about 80% black, that leaves some transparency […] . . . → Read More: cartoon life: Old tuxedo’s wild dream

cartoon life: Just make a mark

Accept that it was the right mark and move along. Commit to it. This reminds me of an exercise done in art, painting and drawing classes that I could never do. That one where you choose a mark, a brush and particular brushstroke and make the whole piece with just that. I could never do […] . . . → Read More: cartoon life: Just make a mark

Things Are Good: Using Art to Critique Government Spying of Citizens

Thanks to the efforts of Edward Snowden we know that illegal, immoral, and downright creepy spying by governments has been going on for years. It turns out that democratic governments around the world regular do mass surveillance of their people, something that authoritarian states are known for. Citizens have fought the spying in courts and […]

cartoon life: Ioannes Holpenivs in progress #5 from Uffizi Okay, this one works for me.

Some interim drawings were worked into a state of morbidity. I won’t pain you with them. Now, I see this one and wonder if I might delicately push something else onto it. Do I spot the eyes? Everytime I do, you look at them and don’t see the drawing. They are an unfinished hunger now.

cartoon life: Seriously abstract cat

When I take of my recently new reading glasses, which focus the world, and shut down the part of my brain that wants to see sense in things, and draw in the breath of glancing at things before you figure out what they are, and seen through a slight astigmatic shortsightedness, things do look this […] . . . → Read More: cartoon life: Seriously abstract cat

cartoon life: Ioannes Holpenivs in progress from Uffizi Catalog pg 161 #madewithpaper / fiftythree.com

Trying some (?) disciplined approach to using the pencil tool in Paper.

cartoon life: What? Who? Me?

Something ages old from Procreate. I was testing some integration from Paper, as I do like the fat pen tool, but Procreate has some nice chalks and charcoals. Returning to it, it looked more interesting than I remembered. A few more charcoal smudges a… . . . → Read More: cartoon life: What? Who? Me?

cartoon life: Just some more mystery fooling around.

Just some more mystery fooling around. I make a mark and don’t know what it means. Then it becomes something. A slab wall appears out of nowhere. Or is it a modern sculpture? That Henry Moore hole seems a clue. Or is this Serra? Well, whetever. Whoever makes this based on my design owes me […] . . . → Read More: cartoon life: Just some more mystery fooling around.
