I have an iPad app which records at 6x speed, so the videos are quite short. Why am I doing this? I’m trying to understand what my sketching habits are as a wannabe artist so that I can improve.

Here are several videos completed today.

My and Sandy’s Wedding Video, 1996 http://www.classicalguy.com/my-and-sandys-wedding-video-1996/ http://www.classicalguy.com/my-and-sandys-wedding-video-1996/#respond Sun, 25 Jun 2017 16:49:09 +0000 http://www.classicalguy.com/?p=1265

I finally got around to digitizing our wedding video from 1996. The old VHS tape probably isn’t going to last much longer. Time to get with the program. Progress, I suppose. I prefer Vimeo not just because it’s a more private archive for video, but with a Pro account you can store videos of any length and also maintain true HD quality.

Quick Sketch of Student Graduate http://www.classicalguy.com/quick-sketch-of-student-graduate/ http://www.classicalguy.com/quick-sketch-of-student-graduate/#respond Fri, 23 Jun 2017 05:24:06 +0000 http://www.classicalguy.com/?p=1261

This is the first of my quick sketches I’ve recorded this summer on a recently purchased iPad Pro, which has made recording these kinds of things a snap. As I follow the path towards becoming an artist, I’ll be capturing on video my efforts. Where this all leads, who knows. I chose the bottom right of the page to make room for other students.

iPhone Drawings http://www.classicalguy.com/iphone-drawings/ http://www.classicalguy.com/iphone-drawings/#respond Mon, 12 Jun 2017 03:55:14 +0000 http://www.classicalguy.com/?p=1240 Tulips

I’ve been playing around with the Brushes App for iPhone and have been pleased with the results. It seems to me that this app offers artists a brand-new medium to work in. But using it on an iPhone, especially with my eyes, is uncomfortable and clumsy. But I’ve fallen so in love with this app that I’ve ordered an iPad Pro, mostly just to use this app.

Shakespeare Adult Coloring Book http://www.classicalguy.com/shakespeare-adult-coloring-book/ http://www.classicalguy.com/shakespeare-adult-coloring-book/#respond Sat, 10 Jun 2017 20:04:01 +0000 http://www.classicalguy.com/?p=1229 P1030426

All my work on the Shakespeare Project has finally come to its fruition with the publication of Volume One of four volumes in the adult coloring book series. Funny, a year ago I’d never heard of coloring books for adults, and now I’m publishing my own. Pretty amazing. You can order the book here.
