iDraw: Today Was Not As Productive as I Had Hoped it Would Be: 2009.07.28


This was done very quickly, from imagination, using the Eastern Artist App on my iThing. I love the customizable signature seal/stamps and the Korean paper backgrounds that are provided. I haven't quite sorted out the controls for the pen but it;s good for me to embrace randomness sometimes. It's a good contrast to yesterday's tight piece done over a photo.

Something Roman-Egyptian About This One...

'Something Roman-Egyptian About This One...' left-handed watercolor self-portrait from imagination by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.)... I think it reminds me of those Fayum mummy portraits. This was done left-handed, and without brushes or pens - just wet socks, q-tips and paint.

Visor from Guatemala

'Visor from Guatemala' magic marker self-portrait drawing by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) Well, I love my Tombo brush pens, but the ink fades right away in 3 weeks or less when exposed to daylight. So, I am experimenting with other media where I can work as fast, have as little cleanup, and get good colors. This was done with water-soluable crayons I have left over from the 80s, when I used them alot. They make a very thick mark, so it was tricky with the fine lines of the drawing which I had done before deciding to use them.

Cross-Eyed on New Year's Day

Turn a Blind Eye

'Turn a Blind Eye' magic marker self-portrait drawing by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) A good way to start the new year!
