Karl Malden’s Nose
About a week ago, a mobile/digital art friend of mine, click here to meet her, posted an evocative photo of a succulent, bulbous tomato on Instagram:
The image reminded me of Karl Malden’s nose; and so for several days I walked around, semi-entranced, with that image on my cognitive back burner…until last night:

Technical: I drew this freehand in Sketch Club on an iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil. Mas o menos, eh? Sketch Club produces a cool statistical summary of the images you create. You can see in this summary that I played around for about an hour. The summary doesn’t show how I used iColorama to slightly darken and sharpen the image, which only took a couple of minutes.
Studying the G Street Revolution
Lately, I’ve been enjoying the sounds of G Street Revolution whenever I have a chance. A few of the musicians are colleagues of my wife at UC Merced. Check’em Out on Facebook or here.
At the Merced County Fairgrounds:
At Vista Ranch and Cellars:
Just a snippet at Five Ten Bistro:
Pretty sure all these were done in Sketch Club and iColorama.
They were sitting still long enough, them and their features’n stuff. Plus, I stopped listening.
iPad Pro, Apple Pencil, couple’a hours, Sketch Club, sharpening in iColorama
