Quick iPadPro drawing memo

Never posted a drawing demo but have been so impressed with the recently purchased iPadPro’s performance that I did a quick drawing from imagination. Am using the Procreate app and Sensu stylus (while waiting for the Apple Pencil to be delivered). The iPadPro’s dimension and fast chip performance lend themselves so well to drawing/painting that I don’t have to dwell on laggy performance. (Video capture via iPhone6 Plus.)

Fotomagico slideshow application

I was fortunate to win a software drawing from the MyMac podcast. Boinx Software’s Fotomagico is a an easy to learn and well-supported slideshow video program. I grabbed some old iPhone photos and put together a video in a short amount of time. It could use some further fine-tuning as I become more familiar with the options. But overall, you can set up a slideshow video quite easily.


Went to the an obon festival held at a local Buddhist temple and took some video of the odori (dancing). Always enjoy seeing the costumes and other festivities to honor the ancestors.

Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens

I recently discovered Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens. They are fast-color India ink, no-show-through and odorless. Artist Don Colley’s video for F-C pretty much sold it for me. I have been using Faber-Castell polychromos pencils for drawing and have been impressed with their quality. So am not surprised these Pitt pens are first-rate.
