Some of my favorite finished drawings. The overwhelming majority were created on phone or tablet.

Dec 15, 2017This started with practicing a knotwork pattern from Celtic Art: The Methods of Construction, and ended up as an exercise in how long I could add stuff before I got bored. Thirteen hours. Not bad. Not in a row, of course. Oh and I threw in a couple tangle elements from The Tangles of Kells. I might be ready to try drawing things on purpose again. Usually it’s just that my hands get itchy when I see blank space.
Nov 7, 2017The other night I went out, and brought my iPad. Sketching calms me when sitting in a public space. This is the final version of a doodle started that night. I get nervous about color, but decided this time to relax a bit and enjoy myself. The result pleases me.
Jun 3, 2017Started with the perspective tools in Procreate, then wandered over to Infinite Painter which has a spattery ink brush that I enjoy. To be honest, I don’t really see the spatter effect much in this picture. Lesson learned, I guess.
Jan 8, 2017Mostly an exerise in light, shadow, and patience. I noticed recently that I run out of attention for a sketch after 45 minutes or so unless I’m particularly focused. For this I specifically worked in 45 minute blocks over the course of a week.
