I did not sleep well last night. Finally got to sleep at 5am. At 4ish I got out of bed and produced several digital drawings. Completing 4 of them – I was tired and could sleep.
In the morning I slept in and got into Mothers work mid morning. Oil Pastel and a little paint was the focus today. I’ve taken photos of the works and will get them uploaded.
When I returned home tonight I produced several more digital drawings:









End of May digital drawings

I slept in a little today but awoke and painted. I am very happy about the tablet and the results im getting. I’ve been unable to produce gray-scale and color layers yet. I may just take these images onto my phone and color them with sketchbook pro.

I lost my sketchbook when I was in Auckland. I need to buy a new one – a5 will be fine.

Here are some more drawings

Kobo Mini Drawing

I now have a Kobo Mini. At 5 inchs it’s small, but it does the trick. I downloaded free epub files for it at first. But now I’ve uploaded a collection of epub files that I had sitting on my laptop. I now want to send wordpress/rss to epub and sync via calibre.


Drew the text/images from the milkshake container. Experienting with text. Larger brushes and the ability to change the opacity would be wonderful. pictureCharacter with a line behind him. Maybe the start of a landscape.

The format for this Kobo file is 600 x 682. At least this is larger than the ipod touch… just feel restricted by the lack of brush options.


Sketchbook auckland

Here are drawings from a protest in Waihi and Aucland.

I love my new landscape sketchbook – the pages are long! These drawings are all in my A4 visual diary.







Sketch of Janelle protesting across the street. I held my sign with my legs and just sketched, multitasking. I did several drawings of Janell in my sketchbook – and in return she drew a portrait of herself for me. 20120818-112350.jpg

A merge of the ‘Fuck the system’ badge attached to Janelles jeans and the massive hole at Waihi – Mining! The view was incredible – shame I didn’t have my normal pencils – only this yellow. The line is much heavier than pencil.

Portrait that Janelle drew in my book during the car drive up to Auckland. I always like it when someone gives me a piece of their own creative lives. 20120818-112359.jpg


Henderson drawing. This was at the train station – observing an intersection below. Aucklands been fun to explore with my sketchbook.
The drive up north with Gary. I tried to fill in perspective – by using both the view outside the car and the interal of the car. Roads were a large focus of this – attempting to capture the scale and rotation. Candles. Where I stayed with Gary. This is the view from the kitchen table- Again working with perspective – candles in foreground and shelf in background.
Where me and Gary stopped for the break on the trip. It was a beautiful view so I did a quick sketch. I included someones van for added scale.
