Bar-B-Q Bike?

"Bicycle" is this week's Illustration Friday theme. And since I've wanted to contribute to the Guy Francis and Stacy Curtis' "Banjo Pig" blog for quite a while now, I decide to kill two pigs with one bicycle. I mean two birds with one... never mind.
Still trying to experiment with Brushes and other painting apps on the iPad. This was almost entirely created with Brushes.
I am tending to prefer Brushes mainly for its ability to "re-create" the file on my computer at much higher resolution using their companion app "Brushes Viewer."
(Thanks to the guys at Banjo Pigs: for posting on their blog!)

Bottled late than never... or canned, or jarred,

Oh well, I missed the last Illustration Friday deadline and there's already a new category out. Last week's was "bottled." Don't know why this was the first thing I thought of. "Bless her heart, ole' Maybelle has done gone and done so much cannin', she's canned herself!" Did this with "Procreate" app on iPad.

First iPad Brushes painting

I figured out how to post this, so, here ya go.
This is my first iPad painting using the "brushes" app.
I like the progressive build animation, as a whole, better than the final still image. A cool feature of brushes. Wasn't thinking of anything or anyone specific, though, he does look Asian, then becomes Norwegian, and then perhaps Dutch, aging all the while.
