Featured on an Adobe Blog

I was honored to be featured on the Adobe Creative Cloud blog the other day. You can find my interview here:

I talked about using Adobe Ideas with Adobe Illustrator. I have enjoyed using Adobe Ideas to get a little more loose with my drawings. I use it on an iPad and I can sketch with it no matter where I am. It also has a natural feel for me. It’s become a natural for me now that I’m using Adobe Creative Cloud.

Enjoy the blog post!

Beach Tastee Freeze

When I thought of Illustration Friday’s word, “freeze,” I thought of one of my favorite summer treats. Whether you for for Tasty Freeze™, slushies, Slurpees, shaved ice, Italian Ice, Mr Freeze™, snow cone, or any other type or brand, They are just the right treat when you’re on a hot beach!

I drew this using Adobe Ideas for the iPad, then Adobe Illustrator.

Balloon Carrier

I drew this for Illustration Friday. This week’s word is “carry.” It reminded me of an older cartoon I drew. The caption mentioned being on a diet. I thought it worked just fine without the caption. After all, since the word is “carry,” let the balloon be the star on this one!

I began this sketch in Adobe Ideas. I am experimenting with drawing on my iPad.
