Digital Gesture Drawing

Testing out a new stylus and sketching app from Adobe on the i-pad Air. The stylus is called Ink and the drawing app is Adobe Sketch. I-pad drawing still isn't as intuitive as Wacom but these tools gave me a kind of wire-sculpture feel which is perfect for Gesture Drawing.

Time-lapse inking

A friend commissioned me to work up a version of the sketch I made of North Beach landmarks Vesuvio's and City lights Book store. I roughed it out in pencil, threw down a light wash then while inking it I thought I'd try and record it in a time-lapse video.

Gesture Drawing Class

This is a test video made under ad-hoc conditions; i-phone balanced above my shoulder on a shelf, me drawing while trying to keep an eye on the phone and the paper in view. Not ideal but several people have asked me to video myself drawing in gesture class and I hope to make some better quality clips soon. These drawings aren't very good and I break all the rules you're supposed to use but this will give you an idea of my approach. 1 minute poses and I'm drawing slooooooow! It's weird to watch yourself draw.
