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!
This time, a Friday evening, I used an iPad Pro, an Apple Pencil, maaaaaybe 4 minutes, Sketch Club, iColorama, a pint of Firestone Walker 805, some guy and his smart phone, and a table.
Some of these are done; some are works in progress; some were done before they were done; but, they’re all done in Sketch Club on my iPad Pro with my Apple Pencil.
Elsewhere on this illustroblog, HERE IN PARTICULAR, I’ve referred to my work at the Enrichment Center (EC), where I’ve taught iPad art to adult artists with developmental disabilities since 2015. The pandemic put an end to our in-person classes and studios, but we’ve continued to meet online a few times a week. On Fridays we meet for timed drawing exercises. Some use traditional tools, e.g., pens, pencils, markers, paper, etc., and others use iPads. We’re shown an object or a photo, we’re given 3 minutes to draw it, and then we take turns showing what we managed to crank out. I have over 60 digital images, and here are a few of them (all done in the Sketch Club app):
Annyth and I were talking about potato chips the other day, and she recalled that, when she would visit her grandmother in the Greater Pittsburgh area, she’d always look forward to having some Wise Potato Chips at one point or another. She had her own local Chicago favorite, Jays, barbecue style! But when it comes to potato chips, I’ve always been a Wise guy! So, once again, we rendezvoused back there on Memory Lane! All that prompted the following:
Once again, these were done on an iPad with the help of an Apple Pencil, Sketch Club app, and some digital tweaking in the iColorama app.
Several days ago someone dropped off about a dozen freshly picked lemons. Today I made a batch of lemon sorbet using the 3 cups of juice they rendered and some zest. I used the juicer Annyth and I bought a couple of months after moving here to Merced in California’s Central Valley in 2014. I’ve used it to squeeze grapefruits, oranges, lemons, limes, and even pomegranates. Thank you for your service.
