365 iPad Drawings/My Year Creating Digitally: All in One Gallery

365 iPad Drawings/My Year Creating Digitally: All in One Gallery

Because you wanted to see all 365 iPad drawings together in one gallery…and so did I. Here they are exactly as published. I was taking this project literally day-by-day, therefore the information I shared with the drawings changed throughout the year. I admit I got a little carried away with alpacas near the end. You’ll […]

My Year of Creating Digitally

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle This is the quote that motivated me to try to develop my iPad drawing skills through Every Day Drawing Challenge. I wanted to learn to use the iPad as a drawing tool, just as famous artist David Hockney […]

Eleven Months & 334 Drawings Later

Here we are entering the 12th month of the Every Day Drawing Challenge. 334 drawings on the iPad since January 1.

Autumn is officially here now as of September 22, and we have settled in and begun to find the groove of the 2013/14 school year. My iPad drawing […]

August Every Day Drawing Challenge…at the 2/3 Mark!

August Every Day Drawing Challenge…at the 2/3 Mark!

August was a month for traveling and making drawings in hotel rooms for the Every Day Drawing Challenge. The first drawing of the month was done during a “Return to your Roots” road trip with my mother as we visited her childhood home and college. It was incredibly nostalgic for her and very sentimental for […]

From Oscar the Grouch to Matisse – Another Month of the Every Day Drawing Challenge

From Oscar the Grouch to Matisse – Another Month of the Every Day Drawing Challenge

Summer, summer, summer…has been great for me and the Every Day Drawing Challenge. Without the hectic schedule of the school year, I have had more time to work with drawing apps and investigate different techniques. ArtRage continues to be my favorite app and I have fallen in love with the oil paint tool this month. […]
