Drawing on the iPad

I have been dabbling with Sketchbook Pro (among other drawing apps) on my Mom’s iPad lately. I have to say it’s pretty fun to work with. Not quite a Wacom tablet killer, Sketchbook has a few limitations, but it certainly has it’s uses considering the price difference between the two. Sketchbook just needs to support larger…

Theme change again, again

I’ve been monkeying around with WordPress for the last month or so. I think I now have a pretty good handle on it’s inner workings, so I’ve been able to make this theme a little more compact and unique from the pedestrian default look, or my old theme. Anyway, I may still make some changes…

Home from my trip

I just finished the last of the illustrations for the thermodynamics textbook I’ve been working on. Hopefully everything comes through okay, and my part is finished. I can finally focus more time on my own book and other things. I’ve also been looking at getting an iPad to use as an inexpensive drawing tablet. I…

Twitter

I just setup a Twitter account, as you can see by the icon on the right side of this page. I don’t know how aggressive I will be in actually using it, but I figured I may as well join the club. The wallpaper used on my Twitter page is an image strait from my…

Illustrating another textbook

Spring is finally here! I hope to pick up a new camera soon, and get back to photography. Over the last month, I’ve been compiling the hundreds of illustrations for the second edition of the thermodynamics textbook my dad wrote in the late 80’s. It’s been a pretty grueling process going through each drawing. Also,…
