  1. “Uncle Curt and Baby Stella” iPad Painting

    Date 29 May 2016
    I really wanted to challenge myself with the iPad Pro. Just to see what I could come up with over a long period of time. My Mom had a picture of my Uncle and cousin that she thought would make a great painting. Generally I don’t paint multiple subjects in…

  2. iPad Pro (Day 16)

    Date 23 May 2016
    I’m back at it with some personal work on the iPad Pro. Also I had my friend and fellow artist, DaNE Smith try his hand at some iPad Art. We were in a crowded bar and the true tone display held up nicely. As for my pieces I created some…

  3. iPad Pro (Day 15)

    Date 19 May 2016
    I felt whimsical today so I turned myself into a chibi character. First I created the ink drawing in Paper 53 using the pen tool. Next I colored it with the marker tool. Cleanup (erasing some stray marks) was done in Procreate and then I played around with creating some…

  4. iPad Pro (Day 14)

    Date 16 May 2016
    For today’s post I’m switching to Paper by 53 and Sketchbook Pro to try out The Apple Pencil and iPad Pro. My main project using these two apps is to create a lookbook of the suits I wear to work everyday. The sketch template is created in Paper and then…

  5. Captain America Vs. Iron Man

    Date 09 May 2016
    I’ve been a Marvel Comics fan since I was 7 years old and we’re in the golden age of comic book superhero movies.  I never could’ve imagined seeing the Avengers on screen together. Captain America: Civil War came out on Thursday in the US and I’ve already seen it twice. …

  6. Happy Mother’s Day

    Date 08 May 2016
    For your special day I finally got around to creating your portrait. It was important that I encapsulated your vibrant personality and vibrant spirit. I know for a fact that I would not be the man I am today without you.   Usually for portraits in Procreate I approach it like…

  7. iPad Pro (Day 13)

    Date 04 May 2016
    Welcome to Day 13 of my iPad Pro and Procreate coverage. Today I created several paintings from observation while at 101 Threads. 101 Threads is an innovative gallery in New Haven featuring my art and the art of many others.  My aim was to take what was right and front…

  8. iPad Pro (Day 12)

    Date 02 May 2016
    Welcome to Day 12 of my iPad Pro and Procreate coverage. Today I’m switching things up. I’m onto only showcasing my own work but also the work of my talented students. Aside from being a freelance artist I also teach.  Arts for Learning is the program I work with and…

  9. #WhereIsRa?: Minnesota and Iowa

    Date 28 Apr 2016
    During Spring Break I took a family vacation to Minnesota and Iowa. For once I left my iPad at home. (Especially since my carry on was stuffed to the brim.) Instead I created some paintings from life on my iPhone using the Brushes app. Also it’s been some time since…

  10. iPad Pro (Day 11)

    Date 27 Apr 2016
    Welcome to Day 11 of my iPad Pro coverage. I took the entire day to focus on one portrait instead of doing a few smaller projects like the previous days. My goal was to try some new tools with this portrait to stay outside of my comfort zone.  I’m still…
