Napping on the table

May 2, 2016

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

Out at night

That Tom! I know he’s out here!

Now I have the box!

My turn

It’s like a condo timeshare.

I have the box

Four cats. One box lid.

Tuxedo cat and paw

April 6, 2016

Okay. I think I got it.  A number of other in-process, well, maybe they were done, but, oh, I don’t know versions are viewable at samupressart Tumblr. All in various stages of goodness. But I think this one balances all the tricks quite nicely.

I want to go out

March 24, 2016

I feel better. I took my meds. And that other stray Tom is out there to beat up. So you have to let me outside. Oh, wait it’s raining. Crap. I guess I’ll stay in and bother you. Until I forget that its raining.

itchy furry tuxedo cat sheds from her tail

It’s my world and welcome to it.

A long-haired queen tuxedo cat, born in a window well, she always looks maniacally alert because she thinks everything is going to eat her. Domesticated enough that she has a home to shed in.

watercolour of a black cat

Made with Auryn Ink, a watercolour simulation app. The interface is odd, but, okay… I’m beginning to see how it works. I like the new smooth paper surfaces.

What? Who? Me?

Something ages old from Procreate. I was testing some integration from Paper, as I do like the fat pen tool, but Procreate has some nice chalks and charcoals.

Returning to it, it looked more interesting than I remembered. A few more charcoal smudges and it’s not too bad.

The old and the young

January 14, 2016

One is 23. One is 19.

Something I rarely do is paint from a photo, but this scene was likely going to change quickly. So, yes, I traced over the photo for the figure and forms, otherwise completely digitally hand painted free form. No filters, no sampling.

Just some silliness.

Just futzing around with importing something into Paper. That patch of orange colour has been run through numerous filters. Anyway, this is also an experiment to see if this image, sized elsewhere will appear ridiculously larger than necessary here.

Black cat on rocker

A quiet, dim corner, pale late evening light.

Hmmm…. is there no way to limit the size of images so they fit? Where is it?

UPDATE : The WordPress app provides a touch tap system to set a few fixed sizes. They don’t seem to successfully apply when updated. On the desktop through the browser, you need to use coarse large movement tools, like a trackpad or mouse to drag the corner of the image to overly precise scaling numbers. Neither tool works adequately.

Zen Tuxedo Cat.

Sleeping Tuxedo. Drawn in Zen Brush 2 app. Once again, this old boy is 19 years old. Sleep and eat is what he does. And quite vocally express his opinion about where you might be on his couch.

This app has some subtle brushes, and even as the colour choices are limited to red and black, inasmuch as I might like some other colours, the occasional and forced restraint yields wonderful drama.

Frenzy

December 22, 2015

  
We go through waves. The last months, in retrospect, have been tired, depressive, laden with gut pain. In the last weeks, not only have I felt better, but, as can be seen, fallow is over and creation begins. As always, just make a mark something will happen.

Auryn Ink and Procreate.
