m2gallery

I went to a digital art gallery opening on Friday night. I came prepared with my digital drawing setup. I had lots of interest in it with plenty of artists (and non artists!) giving it a go. There was others there using Wacom products - though they were on a much bigger scale and not open source.

Cat drawing. This was drawn after the gallery event outside a bar that wouldn't let me in. The girl that drew it was great. Randoms on the street, creating art.

robots at the gallery. One of the only pieces of the night that I created.

so cute. these two girls had a dlr camera so I started talking to them about photography. They ended up drawing this. I like the four legged animal they drew - is it a horse or dog?
