My Fave Blogger: Veronica Varlow

Veronica Varlow

Veronica Varlow – Inkpad, Percolator and Wordfoto on Ipad

Veronica Varlow is not only one of my fave bloggers, she is also a burlesque star, a reader of tarot cards, weaver of magic spells and a teacher on the art of seduction. I started reading her Danger Diary in the last year, even though i’m not really sure how I discovered her blog. Her posts vary from monthly tarot readings, fashion, how-to’s, magic, and her burlesque adventures. I am always inspired by her posts to try new things and to be a little more adventurous.

I love, love, love her sense of style. Her styles range from pinup, burlesque goddess, punk, vintage, retro and various combinations thereof. She inspires me to wear red lipstick and winged black eyeliner on a daily basis, not just for “special occasions.”

Tutorial: Creating a Digital Portrait with Inkpad and Percolator

Sweet Melisa

This is a portrait of Sweet Melisa for Julia Kay’s Portrait Party on Flickr. I started with an Inkpad drawing:

Next I used the Percolator app to make several different versions:

Finally I imported all the different versions into Sketchbook Pro. I used the layers to erase parts of each layer to subtract the Percolated areas that I did not want.

Goodbye Lou Reed

20131029-163148.jpg

No lie, I’ve been listening to Lou Reed’s Transformer for the last week while painting and it was in my CD player when I found out that he had died over the weekend. Lou Reed was one of my favorite artists since my record store years. I’ve had many great memories over the years, like seeing him at the Matisse show at the MOMA in the 90’s, seeing “Songs for Drella” at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and seeing him onstage with David Bowie performing “White Light, White Heat”.

I added this photo of myself wearing my Lou Reed t-shirt to Julia Kay’s Portrait Party a couple of years ago and have had several portraits done with Lou’s image looking up at me.

I loved his voice. I loved the way he was such a presence in New York City. I wish I could have seen him sing one last time.
