My new ‘Colored Wind’ drawing created with 8 1/2” x 11” construction paper and crayola crayons.
Yesterday at McCann New York, the advertising agency I work for, a special digital oriented class was offered called “prototype, sketch, play”. This has been the most helpful class that McCann has offered so far. With an engaging instructor named Joe Takai, and a fascinating in-class project, I would highly recommend it. This drawing I created was the “play” portion of this class. In this portion, we were given the opportunity to work on any creative project we would like in the given time frame. The project only has three rules: use playful materials like scissors, construction paper, crayons, markers, tape, paperclips, etc; create without reservation or guidelines; lastly, have fun with the project. I couldn’t be more happy to have unplanned fun during a normal work day, and in the process I learned a lot about new techniques in prototyping.

My ‘Flower Heart’ digital painting
This is a piece I did a a year or so ago for Mother’s Day, and given the shape, I felt is was very appropriate for Valentine’s Day as well. In the execution, I was exploring the level of depth possible with a monotone color pallet.

I love these scenery illustrations by Chong FeiGiap. The perspective in each piece is playful and the painted details are intricate yet effortless.

"Seashell"
An older painting I created with the Brushes app on my iPad1. The technology of a portable drawing device has really come a long way.
