So much anymore, I can’t say that I use any one single app for drawing. I am pretty sure this was done in Pen & Ink, but then…
… Over to the Mac to Pixelator for scaling and duplicating, back to the iPad for various filters in Popsicolour, over to proCreate for layering and compositing… Back to the Mac for export from the photo stream. Posted from the iPad photo stream to here.

Well, the new ProCreate dropped out of the cloud this morning with tons of new brushes and capabilities. I moved some older images out of some other art apps. Deleted some, but still cling to some others. Brushes, Art Studio and Sketch Club still have some interesting brushes. Really, though, will I ever use the text layer? I tell myself I might. Likely. Hah. They are in danger of being voted off the home screen.
Paper by 53 is still on my art app screen. The silly sketch above is the latest fool-around. I bought some styluses. Broke down. The Jot classic’s precision almost perfectly compensates for the lack of zoom in Paper. The black outline of the cats was drawn with the pen tool. The tiny scribbled dots for the eyes are almost precisely where I want them. Even then, zoom would have given me precisely what I wanted.

The medium sized 22 cats book measures roughly 6 by 8 inches, or 15 by 20 cm. It contains the same 22 images as the small 22 cats book which I distributed as a promotion piece. You can download a free PDF of the small book. The medium sized 22 cats book available from me is $25.00 including shipping and handling. There are only ten of them – a few strategically distributed at finer Über Cool shops everywhere.
The 22 cats book features a selection of images from the ebook series 100 cats, available on the iTunes bookstore.

What a fast turnaround! I thought I would have some time to set up a page for the book before then.

Well, that was a bit of an insane run. My 100 cats drawing project ran out of steam at around 80 pictures, and I decided, WTH, put ‘em all up here and see what happens.
It pushed me over the hump, I think, along with getting a bit more proper sleep. Though only eighty or so have been put up, there are a few more than 100 in the ebook, and some that haven’t been seen here. It hasn’t been properly finished yet, and so hasn’t been submitted. I hope I don’t run onto some obtuse objection to it, like with the Ocean Views booklet. It was a distraction, too, to try and meet the unclear criticisms of that submission.
Naught to do but wait, at this point. My paid books account waits for approval. I hope to put up 100 cats for 99¢. Stay tuned cat fans. And huge thanks for all the likes, especially for the ones I thought were a bit unusual.
There will be a number of promo codes available. I’d like to distribute a few. How should I decide?
