The Heart of London climbs to the top: We’re #4, We’re #4!

cartoon life: Seven little cats in the grass

It’s been a week of tired. Sometimes I despair that so much is on the edge. I have no work held back, no posts queued up, no drawings hovering. Then you just make a mark, and something happens, and you just follow it. So this is fresh – last night – and with no idea ...

Progressive Proselytizing: Tech on the Side: Apple numbers: languishing iPad sales a function ofthe phone subsidy model

The ability to make phone calls on a modern smartphone is now just one app among many. For most people it isn’t even close to the most used app with Facebook, YouTube, messaging, games, and the like dominating usage.

cartoon life: Do I have too many apps?

This iPad has been displaying some odd problems with apps crashing, it seems, when they try to access memory, for instance Sketches app when saving, ScannerPro just after it takes the picture, when it frames it up. Paper too, when browsing through books of drawings. I’ve been dropping into the app switcher mode to close ...

cartoon life: Where can I find your free ebooks and stuff? Hmmm?

The 100 cats (nearly 150 cats only $0.99!) ebook is still at iTunes, along with the also free ebook, 20 ...

cartoon life: Cat face. Are you looking at me again?

Oh, are you looking at me again? As spontaneous as this drawing seems, it took four days. I have wanted to draw the cats more from life, but they generally are always sleeping. This one will look at me from time to time. Then run away. Or fall asleep curled up hiding her face. Or ...

Progressive Proselytizing: Tech on the Side: Lessons from HDDVD vs Blu-ray

My first real foray into the world of following tech news came with the epic HDDVD vs Blu-ray fight. This was more than a little odd. At the time, I didn’t even have an HDTV, and had no intention of getting a next gen optical media player let alone a DVD player. Even today, every ...

Progressive Proselytizing: Tech on the Side: Apple’s tablet upgrade cycle problem

On this blog I like to cover the big issue facing our planet, issues dramatically affecting millions or billions of people: war, conflict, global warming, poverty, economics, rights and freedoms, etc. Okay, okay, sometimes I like to get bogged down in the personalities and gamesmanship of politics, but if I can I like to keep ...

cartoon life: Another look back

Somewhere. The south of France, near the border with Italy, perhaps even in north west Italy? Likely, from the time stamps. No GPS data in the photograph here.  Working over the photo with the charcoal brush as colored chalk in Procreate. Fussed and fretted in the detail for a while, then just slammed some big ...
