This is not an original idea whatsoever; there are those drawings that someone did where they fancy up kids’ drawings, and this is the same concept, essentially.
People, some people, not all people, tend to be interested in how one draws on one’s iPod. When that happens, I whip out my thing, open the Brushes app, and do a little scribble on a blank document so they can see the process. If that person then asks to have a go, I hand over the iPod and let them draw.
In the past, I’ve done some drawings that are based on the doodles of other people within my iPod, but I’ve not flagged them up, mostly because I never saved the original doodle that the other person drew. But this time, I did.
On New Year’s Eve, my friend Hector did this drawing:
I saved it, and emailed it to him. And the original sat there in my Brushes app for a few weeks. But last night, whilst watching a documentary about Will Self on YouTube, I doodled over the top of Hector’s drawing. And turned it into a drunk, angry, vicar:
Doing this sort of thing is incredible fun. You are freed from trying to get things “right.”
So, anyway, here’s a wee animation showing Hector’s original and my drawing fading between each other:
More finger painting here.
