Some Dads really go all-out for their bambinos.
I imagine the dude inside the contraption is an old buddy that helped Dad build the whatchamacallit, and now has been given the task, albeit begrudgingly, of driving the engines.
This was from an old sketchbook. I took it into ArtRage for the iPad
to colorize. Still getting used to the different way of looking at an iPad, not as a computer, but as a electronic device, as it relates to file transfers back and forth. (Which can be frustrating.) As well as the limitations back and forth of some software iPad apps. Still learning my way around the iPad, but having a blast doing so!

Test from iPad

My very first Brushes app painting. (And first post from iPad using BlogPress.) The animated progression is cooler than the final result. I'll have to see if there's a way to save the movie from Brushes to post. (if anyone reading this knows, give a holla) Gracious. This should make it whole lot easier keeping up with my posting!

For the mountain of eternal soft swirl. "I dropped a carabiner into the soft, vanilla goodness, I volunteer to go get it!"


OK, so I remembered this week's Illustration Friday topic incorrectly. It was supposed to be "Stir," and I remembered it as "Swirl." Well, at least I got around to doing SOMETHING. A last gasp for Ole' Man Winter. It IS Spring after all. I HAVE already had an "Oh, good thing I went around changing all the clocks in the house yet still found a way to be late to an appointment because the ONE clock I did not set to SPRING forward was the one I ACTUALLY LOOK AT ALL DAY" moment. Oh well, tomorrow's St. Pattys. We'll ALL be swirlin' then by golly. "Once you reach the summit, you can see the land of banana splits, and chocolate parfaits."

Warning Will Rogers

Some universal signs are subtle. Some, not so subtle. Illustration Friday's theme this week is “Warning.“ Red Sky at Night, Sailor's Delight, Red Sky in Morn, Sailors Better
Watch their Backside or else they may end up in one of those Huge Whirlpools in the Middle of the Sea like you used to see in Old Movies. Or something like that...
