Forbidden Planet: Inkpad and Wordfoto on iPad

I started this picture about a month ago when I first got Inkpad but wasn’t really happy with it. Inkpad recently had a major update so I decided to revisit it and add “Forbidden Planet” using Wordfoto.

TiLT: To Walk in Gala’s Shoes For a Day

Gala Darling

I’ve been following Gala Darling’s blog for about a year now, give or take a month or two. In that time I have seen her photos from her trip to Paris, watched her walk down the runway at a Betsey Johnson fashion show and have loved all of her wonderfully colorful outfits. This week she posted a video of an interview that aired in New Zealand and it was great to see her in action and hear her talk about “being big in the Blogosphere”. I loved seeing Gala’s New York, watching her blogging in the middle of Times Square or visiting a Patricia Fields store. I’ve been to New York many times over the years but i would love to take a tour of Gala’s favorite places.

Every Thursday she posts “Things I Love Thursday” and invites her readers to submit links to their favorite things list. For the last several months I have tried to write my TiLT list and have found it to be a great challenge to not only think about what I love, but how can I relate it to my art or photography. I usually start thinking about it on Monday, but usually end up writing it on Thursday.

The portrait of Gala was created on my iPad using Inkpad, Wordfoto and Sketchbook Pro. I kind of hurried it along to have it done for this post, so I might end up reworking it. One of my new favorite app combos is Inkpad and Wordfoto. I’m just learning how to use Inkpad and with each portrait I discover something new about it. I’m just loving Wordfoto. It’s one of the more fun apps to come out in a while.

Catwoman: Creating a Digital Collage Using Inkpad, Wordfoto and Sketchbook Pro on iPad


I found a neat new iPhone app called Wordfoto and I wanted to use it with an Inkpad picture I created. I used the words Meow and Purrr for the Catwoman theme. I thought the words were too overwhelming for the picture so I imported the Inkpad picture and the Wordfoto picture into Sketchbook Pro to erase or lighten the words. I think Wordfoto really works well with comic book related pictures. Finally I imported the picture to ArtRage to give it the watercolor paper texture.

Oksusha2000 For JKPP

I created these two portraits of Oksusha2000 on Flickr for Julia Kay’s Portrait Party. I loved that the artist posted photos of herself as a child and I wanted to give the portraits a dream-like quality. I used ArtRage and Sketchbook Pro on the iPad for both of these portraits.
