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.
I’m switching out stuff from Dropbox to Google Drive. The eight wallpapers I posted earlier have a new home, and all the free ebooks, cats and landscapes are also there.
Download this book to view on your new Christmas tablet. It’s free. It’s a PDF. It’s digital. It’s tiny. It’s cool.

Okay, Cool! The updated 100 cats ebook is live in the iTunes bookstore! https://itunes.apple.com/ca/book/100-cats/id559121901?mt=11
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.
