  1. iPad Pro (Day 18)

    Date 09 Jun 2016
    Yesterday I participated in Ross Woodward’s Career Day. I love talking to kids of all grade levels about the work I’m doing and inspiring them. It’s my favorite kind of volunteer work because it’s rewarding for both me and them. Superheroes were the order of the day so I created…

  2. iPad Pro (Day 17)

    Date 07 Jun 2016
    For my paintings today I switched to ArtRage on iPad Pro to put it through it’s paces. For the uninitiated, ArtRage is pretty much a studio painting simulator. You get access to oils, watercolors, paint tubes, markers and more. I’ve been using it for years and have created some of…

  4. Commissions Breakdown: Comic Portrait

    Date 01 Jun 2016
    Since I’m open for commissions for the Spring/Summer season I wanted to take the time to breakdown the services I offer.  First is the “comic book” portrait. The client gives me a photo for reference and I create a freehand illustration. This can be a cartoony version of your friend,…

  6. “Kingdom Come Superman” iPad Painting

    Date 31 May 2016
    I wanted to thank my Uncle Steve for the fashion photos he took of me while I was in Minnesota last month. Like me he’s a big comic book collector so it was only natural to paint an icon like Superman. The painting is based on artwork by Alex Ross…

  7. “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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…
