About a week or so ago I bought a new stylus called the The Jot Pro and since then have been experimenting with sketching on the iPad with it.
While it does happen to be one of the better styluses on the market I still don‘t like the lack of tactile feedback.
To prove how well it works I decided to use the app Procreate to time-lapse record a sketch.
Here‘s the result of that session with soothing musical overlay:
The work of illustrator Carsten Bradley speaks for itself. It’s not only beautiful but also captures the essence of imagination & wonder.
Battle of Britain: Secret of the Dragon’s Eye (shown above) is probably one of my favorites from his Deviantart portfolio.
Even though I’ve had a birthday to look forward to once a year, I’ve never really paid much attention to the weeks/days leading up to it. Mostly because I’m still convinced that I haven’t aged beyond 18 and turning into whatever age you have become always sounded so strange to me.
Person: “Hey, so you’re turning 33? Good for you, pal.”
I’m not even sure if my imaginary person I’m having this conversation with would actually say pal, but indulge me for a bit.
Me: “Yep, well, I guess so. Haven’t put much thought into it.”
Person: “You know what they say about turning double digits?”
Me: “No. I don’t.”
Person: “Me neither, actually, I just forgot where I was going with that. Anyways, congrats.”
Instead of mentioning that I’m turning 33, I think I’m just going to say I’ve somehow “turned” 11, three times now.
And many more.
