Pillows for your cats


It can’t be helped or prevented. Here are some products with my images from TingFest III.

Napping on the table

The dining room table was cleared for a day or so. And we haven’t napped there yet. So it must be done.

My cat art images for Tingfest III 2016


I expect some of my readers will not be able to make it to LondonOnt for this exhibition. Here are the images.

Goofy sketchy cat

Being goofy in Sketches. I like the new pen. I wonder why I don’t use this app more often. Some nice watercolour tools.

My books for Tingfest III 2016

These are four books specially printed for Tingfest. 20 Monsters is also available as a free ebook at iTunes, though this is a special limited edition print run of 20 for this exhibition.The remaining books are collections of editorial cartoons drawn for The Londoner, also limited run editions of 20 for the exhibition. Comics is multi-panel work, Cartoons is single panel work, and Zeroman is the collected serial and related cartoons of London’s tax-fighting hero.

Odd tuxedo on green

A Matisse-like cubism. Made with the earlier version of Tayasui Sketches. The new version has some interesting new brushes, and as I was browsing the gallery I noticed this, which seems a bit more interesting than when I did it.

I don’t pop into Sketches very often. Like most of the other painting apps, it seems a bit more choosy-delay at first. When one has the, really not so difficult inclination to sit and actually draw, many apps respond to that kind of, well, I’m going to sit down and make something now, kind of time. Rather like a sketchbook and a dedicated desk.

This isn’t a problem. Procreate and Sketches and so many other apps intend this kind of action. It isn’t a negative, but Paper, for instance, hasnt’t lost the spontaneity of launching into a useful space that responds to an idea-whim.

Interesting difference.

TingFest is on


Google it: tingfest. You are all invited

See that? It means Swipe.

    You see that? It stands for swipe.

Black cat on the floor

Auryn ink watercolour direct brutal drawing and scrubbing away at erasing. I wish the app had a more sensitive eraser, sponge, or tissue mode to erase or pick up too much colour.

Update: in the interim, the developer of Auryn Ink has indeed added a more sensitive softer eraser option. Very nice.

Back to the masters.

Albrecht Dürer 1490 Portrait of the Artists Father from Uffizi catalog pg 166. I go back to this catalog to draw a few things that catch my eye, and shame, no, rather challenge myself. :-) as there is just no way I can make realistic drawings.

Black cat on green

Poking my drawing finger into Concepts app. I have many. Many are neglected and not drawn in. Some are kept for specific tools or effects. Some get pokes every once in a while. and just like there are many shades of users, Concepts is well named, as it seems well suited to designers.

Out at night

That Tom! I know he’s out here!

Now I have the box!

My turn

It’s like a condo timeshare.
