Things I Love Thursday: Cupcakes!

Peanut Butter Cupcake

We recently discovered BuCu, which has become our favorite cupcake place. They are sort of expensive but they are a special treat, not really something we would have every day. They also have a “cupcake” milkshake, which is another decadent desert. I would like to do a series of the cupcakes, which means I would get to try all the different varieties. This was done with Toonpaint and Artrage on the iPad. It was inspired by the work of Wayne Thiebaud. I really love his colorful and painterly pictures of cakes and other food.

A big thanks to the fine people at Nomad Brush for posting my interview for Autism Awareness Month where I discuss how raising a son on the Autistic Spectrum has influenced the way I make art.

Portrait of Marta: Toonpaint and ArtRage on iPad

Marta B. For JKPP

This is a portrait of Marta B. for Julia Kay’s Portrait Party on Flickr. I used a combination of the Toonpaint app and ArtRage to create this painterly look. Marta’s original photo reminded me of the covers of Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine from the 1980’s. I was also thinking of Wayne Theiboud’s colorful paintings.

Mobile Artists Assigned Paintings: Tribute To Ming Doyle

MAAP: Tribute To Ming Doyle

This week’s subject for the Flickr group Mobile Artists Assigned Paintings (MAAP) is illustrator and comic book artist Ming Doyle. In a bit of Internet Synchronicity I had followed a twitter link to her site the morning before I saw this assignment on Flickr. My picture is from a photo I found on Ming Doyle’s Tumblr site. I wanted to do a black and white picture but somehow other colors just kind of found their way into the picture. Here are some of the various versions I did before getting to the final version.

Simply Adorable

20120417-154852.jpg

A couple of weeks ago I was commissioned to create a portrait of Adora for the Adorable Tumblr featuring over 300 pieces of artwork based on photos and a Wish List of different ideas artists can work from. For my portrait I used Percolator, Wordfoto and Sketchbook Pro on my iPad.

This is such a wonderful project and I am really enjoying seeing all the imaginative art that is on the site. The artists are from all around the world and there is a wide variety of styles and materials used. I’m really looking forward to seeing this project as it progresses.

Ejmordasky for JKPP: Inkpad on iPad

ejmordasky For JKPP

This is a portrait of Ejmordasky, one of Julia Kay’s Portrait Party’s newest members using vector drawing app Inkpad. I am working on using more linear elements with Inkpad and this was a good exercise for that purpose. In the original photo she is holding a wire twisted into the word “love”. I drew the word using an unfilled stroke in black. Next I used duplicate in place to make a lighter grey version of the word and moved it slightly to give it the look of a highlight. I also used the stroke on the words on the camera. It was a fun portrait to do because all the details kind of took me out of my comfort zone.

Aileen Pringle: Inkpad and ArtRage on iPad

Aileen Pringle

This is a portrait of silent film star Aileen Pringle. I used Inkpad for the initial drawing and added PicGrunger and ArtRage to give the surfaces more texture. I wanted to experiment with using more of the black outline in Inkpad and the “Stroke” or more linear elements in addition to the flat shapes.
