Sad Robots Video

Sad robots, cute monsters

Hello! I’m back to work on new art sets and workshop content that is keeping me busy in the background. I’ve been drawing and filming, often at the same time and it’s been a lot of fun. But what has been most fun lately is my new Apple Pencil. WOW! It’s seriously cool. I’ve had an iPad for years with a clumsy fat stylus that was rotten for drawing. My husband bought me the Apple Pencil recently and it was pretty life changing art-wise. No more clumsy stylus art for me! The Apple Pencil handles just like a real pencil, or paint brush, or marker…. whichever tool you click on. I was pretty blown away by how well it works for drawing on an iPad. Combine it with Procreate and you have a winning art tool. Pretty expensive though. Typical, LOL.

I made some pink blobby monsters with a sad robot. One amazing thing I love about Procreate is that it creates automatic videos of your art for you. I didn’t realize this until I had drawn a few pictures. It’s seriously fun to look back on your creative process and see how you get from A (being a horribly messy scribble) to B (a nice enough drawing). I did some post editing on Photoshop on this art. I’ve been more traditional rather than digital in recent years but this new combo has me all happy about digital art once again.

Book of Days 2019

I took a bit of time off this past year but I’m back in action for the new year! I’m a teacher in Effy Wild’s Book of Days program for 2019. I’m not sure yet which month I’ll be featured but I’m in there! I don’t know how many of you have ever had Effy as a teacher but she’s wonderful. She’s been in LifeBook since its inception I believe so I’m sure many of you know her programs. She’s a superb teacher and a great friend too. This is the first year she’s opened up Book of Days to guest teachers and it’s a wonderful group. I hope you’re able to join us. The program has only just started so you’ll have Effy’s portion as well as 12 guest teachers (including Tamara Laporte, Micki Wilde and Sarah Trumpp), and 12 emerging teachers. That’s a lot of art lessons!
