Hang this!

I couldn’t help seeing a video earlier today of the Taliban using cranes to hang people in public. Good grief! I can’t even begin to imagine what it’s like having a “religion” like that. The sight of it nauseated me; and I wanted to paint all of it but the hanging corpse. I figured I’d decide what I was going to substitute for the dead body once I had finished everything else. The poison sign came to mind, so I went with it. I didn’t want to think too much about it. Anything but a dead body. What am I missing?

Flatpickin’ Molly

Something about this video of Molly Tuttle playing an old Martin guitar caught my eye, and I felt the urge to play along. I wish I could have played along with a guitar, but it was easier to sneak a screenshot and use it as a reference for some iPad playing in Sketch Club with a sharpening tweak in iColorama. Check out the video below.

 

Lay Over

We trained from CA to Chicago on the Californian Zephyr, spent the night to catch the Capitol Limited to Pgh. Here’s where we finalized our trifecta and more! The Chicago hot dog, no ketchup of course, coupled with polish sausage, at the Chicago Brewery along the Riverwalk! Last night we had deep dish pizza, and for lunch today, an Italian Beef!!!! Amen!

Do we underestimate extinction?

Do we deserve democracy?

Run that by me again, Joe.

quetzal

On one of our online Friday afternoon timed-drawing exercises, the organizer showed a photo of a quetzal in flight and gave us 3 minutes to draw it. I used my iPad, an Apple Pencil, and the Sketch Club app and produced this:

A week later I tried messing with that image.
