Instagram Inspiration: @Poshadornments

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.

My Fave Blogger: 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.”

Steve Huison as Fat Brenda

Steve Huison as Fat Brenda

This is a portrait of Steve Huison as a character called “Fat Brenda”. Steve Huison is a long time member of Julia Kay’s Portrait Party. I had done some photo collage portraits of him when I first started with the portrait party and decided to do a new portrait of him using the Inkpad app. This is my first portrait of a man dressed as a woman for the portrait party. You can read an interview about the Fat Brenda character here.

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.

All of the winning artwork was featured on the CNet site here.

I love the variety of art that was submitted by over 200 artists. It goes to show that artists of very different backgrounds and experience can pick up the iPad and create some very creative and imaginative work.
