I meet the best people

Posted Aug 2013

This photo arrived through the Post Office today. From a person that I drew a few weeks ago.

Lifted me up for sure. I like to feel like my talents make people happy.

I also had a great connection with my website designer today. He's so helpful. Gives me just what Computer skills I need. It gets around.

People passing along their goodness. People helping others. Good connections.

Postscript August 31, 2013 ~ The Beach Mayor contacted me again. To thank me for what I do for everybody when I draw at the Kitefly. He mentioned a woman who has relocated more than once since I had drawn her many years ago, and that she brings my drawing along when she packs. This is a great thing. I imagine it means that my drawing makes her feel good. Thank You

Digital Artwork

Posted Aug 2013

I enjoy using the new Art Supplies. Any one Studio picture can flip between IPad's ArtStudio, Computer's PhotoShop, Paper with Markers and Colorsticks, The Lightbox..... And I still use Pencils with Erasers. Different Supplies are best for handling different aspects of the Artwork.

For instance, I prefer using PhotoShop for Warping Text, but I prefer using IPad for Coloring. So I have to send a picture back and forth. I discovered that it's easy to Export the picture directly from the IPad ~ there's a dropdown menu for 'Export by email'. But I have to save the picture to my Desktop and then pick it up from the Desktop if I want to email it from PhotoShop. Extra fussy-steps.

So I wrote a note to myself about that. And I chose to keep the note because I want to remember how easily I made the Camophlage-style background when I wrote that note.

The Artist has new toys.

Lost and Pregnant

Posted Aug 2013

Guess who's watching Lost again ~ Not serious drawing, just doodling on my down-time. Because I feel right when I have a pen moving. I guess it's like the way some people feel insecure if they don't have a cigarette.

and I notice something different with my down-time these days. Because I only seem interested in Coloring if it's on the IPad. I do like that IPad. Look at that jitter that I found in my Pencil Settings. I am still drawing a lot on Paper, but I even change some lines when I get it into that IPad for Color. That's quite a thing. Like something that Artists have been always waiting for.
