This is a digital drawing of a Steampunk Pixie at the 2016 Steampunk World’s Fair in New Jersey. I used the Inkpad vector app on my iPad. I also used the Percolator app to create the patterns in her dress, and then used Sketchbook Pro combine the drawings.

This is a portrait of Heather, also known as @Poshadornments on Instagram and Twitter. Heather makes incredible jewelry that she sells on her Etsy site and at various shows around the New Jersey/New York area. I met Heather a couple of years ago at SketchCon and I try to buy a piece of her jewelry every time we are in a show together. This portrait is an iPad mashup using Inkpad, Wordphoto and Sketchbook Pro on the Ipad.
I visited Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey back in May. The sculpture park is a beautiful place to spend the day. There was a Seward Johnson retrospective going on which included some larger sculptures (like the Marilyn Monroe statue) which usually travel around the country. The colorful flowers and breathtaking landscapes make GFS a wonderful destination for taking photos and even plein air painting. Since the park is open all year long you can experience the sculptures in different ways as the seasons change. Some of the sculptures can be (gently) touched and interaction with the art is encouraged. Throughout the park are three dimensional reproductions of French paintings which would be a great way to introduce children to art history. There are also indoor sculpture galleries with rotating exhibits.
I would love to spend a leisurely day there drawing and taking pictures.
I am happy to announce that my portrait of Jo for JKPP was selected for the MDAC Summit 2015 in Palo Alto, California. Only 100 pieces were selected from over 1200 entries. The show will be up through the month of August at the Palo Alto Art Center.
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.”
