Paper by 53 periodically posts profiles of users: today, I am honoured:
Doug Rogers has created some of our favorite #madewithpaper cats and we thought today would be the perfect (purrrfect) day to share his #PaperProfile.
Doug hails from London, Ontario (Canada) and has been the stay-at-home dad in his family. He’s “always made art, cartoons, illustrations, signs, advertising art, caricatures, and comic strips.”
We asked Doug how he uses Paper and he said, “For fun, work, personal journaling images. Used Paper for final art images, and preliminary sketching. As others say, it’s the go to beginning. Fast to load, quick easy tools. And if you’re careful and meticulous, rare for me, capable of producing finishing art.”
When asked about Paper-specific projects Doug told us, “Paper was perfect for iPad drawing in museums where cameras and wet mediums are reasonably forbidden. It was a whole pocket paintbox. So I used it throughout a visit to Europe. And I was using it to redraw photos from a road trip where passing landscapes were photographed out a moving car window.”
Four of Doug’s favorite drawings are below and you can see more of his work here:
So happy to have a bunch of new firm pencil tips. Why can’t I buy these? I would.
Here we go. Final version. Mugs upcoming.
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 what is over the edge of the precipice of tomorrow that I can see.
This is so damned whimsical I wish I could bottle it.
Painted in Paper, assembled in Procreate.
Actually quite a stylish chair.
Our 17 or 18 year old tuxedo sleeps a lot. It’s hard to get a pose where he doesn’t look dead.
Getting around to drawing from the catalog bought at The Uffizi last summer. Recalling that you need a fan and bottles of water to traverse the building. And lots of time, and some idea of what you want to see before you go in.
Seeing from a book is not the same thing as seeing while being there. Drawing is however much more pleasant.
