Christmas scene in February

I drew this in February, it would be a good image for a Christmas card.

Made on my iPad with the Paper53 app, drawn from life.


Lenk

Four years ago I was in Lenk (Switzerland) and I made drawings in the vacation home. The drawings I made in this house, were the first post on this blog. And I used a part of these drawings as the header of this blog. Now I am again in Lenk, in the same house, and I did drew a part of the header of this blog. Now on my iPad. And with less concentration and determination, I must say.

Magician Mal Cross

I met him in Manhattan, New York. I looked rather long at his moustache, so he invited me for a cup of coffee. He showed me some of his tricks and allowed me to draw him. And he explained me the effects of marijuana, which is a rather odd thing to do to someone from Amsterdam, I think. On his business card he wrote: Mal Cross, magician to the rich and famous. Here is his website: malcross.com

Janos Marton on Skype

Today I went to see a documentary about the  Living Museum. The Living Museum is a workspace for artists at the Creedmoor Psychiatric Hospital in New York. Janos Marton is leading the place and after the film we skyped with him. Rokus Loopik would like to start a Living Museum in The Netherlands.

I have been busy for hours to post this drawing from Flickr to this WordPress blog 😦
 
I used to post Flickr-images through the ’embed’ feature of Flickr. I would copy the embed code given by Flickr into the ‘text’ interface of this WordPress blog. It worked fine for years, but this doesn’t work anymore. So I tried to use the “WordPress” button in Flickr, it didn’t work either. I tried this WordPress ‘how to’ guidelines, but it didn’t work either. At last I used IFTTT. That worked. But it is not really the best solution. With this IFTTT recipe I can’t post multiple images. I have to think to tag a drawing with ‘WordPress’. If I want to blog an image I already uploaded before to Flickr, this recipe doesn’t work either.
 
So if anyone can help me to embed my drawings upload on Flickr to this WordPress blog, I would be grateful.

Meetup with JKPP members in Oxford

Last saturday I was together with my daughter at a meetup of Julia Kay’s Portrait Party in Oxford. We drew, ate and socialized from 11 in a community centre. Julia Kay’s Portrait Party is a virtual Portrait Party in which artists draw each other from photos posted on Flickr for that purpose. All members of the group are therefore both subjects of portraits and creators of portraits. Members of JKPP sometimes organise meetups IRL (in real life). Martin Beek, Jane Sherwood and Margarita Perez Garcia organised a third (or fourth?) IRL meetup in Oxford. It was again great to meet the JKPP members I already met in Oxford and Brussels in 2011.

Exploring the online iPad drawing resources

Monmoli for jkpp

If I go to the app-store I can find a lot of drawing apps. Which ones are interesting enough to explore? Julia Kay is my first source to go to. She leaves wonderful iPad information on the net. On YouTube there is a 2010 video in which she explains together with Valerie Beeby 20 apps in 50 minutes. On Julia’s Flickr account she wrote also about her favorite apps.

I also signed up to the iPad Painters Facebook-group, led by friendly Kate Barber. All kinds of interesting info is posted there, like an article about the 5 favorite apps of Sumit Vishwakarma.

This drawing is made for Julia Kay’s Portrait Party (JKPP), my first drawing made with the use of layers.
