One of the things I love about drawing digitally is how quick I can bash ideas out. On paper, I can bash the idea out with a pencil or a pen, but it’ll just be a sketch. Digitally, I go through a similar process but also define colours, change things, and still feel something of the spontaneity. So here’s a bunch of stuff drawn in Photoshop and on the Paper app for iPad. I really like the Paper app. I just wish it could export the drawings at larger than screen size. I would use it so much more if that were possible.
This was an early morning warm-up sketch:
For this, I had this thought of doing the US states as squircles sized according to total area of each state. I figured that doing something like Canada first would be a better idea. Less provinces and territories to deal with:
I like the idea of doing a whole family of records. Like, the 7″ single is a kid who just wants to have some quick fun; the 12″ single is a bit older, going to clubs; a 10″ single is the kid who wears mis-matched socks whilst reading French novels; and the album is the sensible one who is thinking about his pension:
Start of a quick dirty project that may or may not be finished:
I look back with much fondness at the time when I was a kid, drawing rockets with three numbered parts:
Still really fucking angry about brexit:
Every now and then, I try drawing with my wrong hand (the right hand). It’s a useful exercise. I’ve been doing it for a couple of years, and it still feels weird, but less weird with every passing drawing. And I really like how my right hand drew clouds here, something my left hand would never have done:
Not really sure what I was doing here. It was quite late last night, just drawing with my brain turned off:
But the stickman vibe felt like it could be worked on, so I did a Kraftwerk concert. Might work on this style some more.
