Orlando, again

without comments

Back at Tortas Jorge. Orlando, the guitar man, kept moving his head, and, y’know… drawing whilst drinking… I lost the will to do a proper representation of the what was on his shoulders.

I find palm trees difficult to draw on the iPod and iPad. Gotta keep trying…

Hector’s drawing

without comments

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:

A drawing done with the Brushes app on top of a crappy resolution photo taken with an iPod touch somewhere over the state of Campeche in Mexico.

Bohemia

without comments

Bottle of Bohemia, drawn last night whilst drinking said beer. It was a super quick drawing, because once I’d started doing it, I realised that a waiter would likely come and remove the bottle if he saw it was empty. It was kind of fun to do, though; to have an undefined time limit on drawing. I got all but one of the shadows done before he took the bottle away. So I was forced–forced!–to order another just so I could finish the drawing.
