SketchCon Presents: Fairy Tale Nightmares


I will be part of SketchCon at The Whiskey Cafe in Lyndhurst, New Jersey on February 10th. The event will be from 10 am until 5 pm. This will my first time doing something like this. I am planning on bringing some digital prints, stickers and some magnets that I made. I am still debating whether to being some small paintings. If you live in New Jersey stop by and say “hi”. It looks like it will be a fun and interesting event!

Retromatic Anne

Retromatic Ann

This is another app mashup using an Inkpad drawing which has been imported into Retromatic. I also used Picgrunger for the aged look then imported that into ArtRage to give it the look of a wall painting. I could see this being painted on a wall or the side of a building in NYC.

Portrait of Charvel: Tooncamera and Artrage on iPad

Charvel For JKPP

This is a portrait of Charvel from Julia Kay’s Portrait Party on Flickr. This is an extreme app mashup, combining Toonpaint, Percolator, Sketchbook Pro and Artrage on my iPad mini. I like the “wall” texture in Artrage because it reminds me of a mural or street art. The beauty of ArtRage is that you can change the texture of the surface to create unique effects, and it really effects the way you lay down the paint on the surface.

Creating an App Mashup Using Retromatic

Retromatic Liz

Retromatic is a fun iPhone App to jazz up your iPhone photos. I decided to try it on my iPad mini to create an app mashup. I started with a vector drawing of Liz Taylor using Inkpad on my IPad.


Next I imported part of the drawing into Retromatic and added different graphic elements that are part of the app, such as the circles and the “R”.


Finally I imported the Retromatic picture into Picgrunger to give it an aged look, see the picture at the top of the post. I was thinking of an old billboard or street art.

#TwitterArtExhibit #Los Angeles


Screenshot from the #TwitterArtExhibit site

I was very fortunate to be part of the #TwitterArtExhibit at the E.U. Gallery in Los Angeles. The exhibit opened on January 12 and runs until February 10th. The show benefits Art Division, a nonprofit program for underserved young adults in LA’s Rampart District. This was the third #twitterartexhibit that I have participated in. The first two were in Norway and was started by David Sandum, @DavidSandumArt on Twitter. You can read more about on the #TwitterArtExhibit site and view pictures of the opening. It looks as if it had a packed opening reception and they sold a lot of the postcards, including mine.
