Oh the possibilities. Paper app for the iPad. Continue reading

This is what has been going on. Some building, some testing and as always, some teaching (and hopefully some learning). The Pencil tool for the Paper app has been nothing short of a "homecoming". The comfort of being able to... Continue reading

Watching Season 2 of House Of Cards makes it nearly impossible to finish a drawing. Or anything else, for that matter. Paper app for the iPad + Pencil by 53 (whose tip is still holding up, after 2 months of... Continue reading

It's the year of the horse. Happy new year! While I see some amazing art being produced with the Paper app, my own lack of knowledge of color and painting confines me to a very pen-on-paper kind of approach. Continue reading

How neat it is to carry around iPad and styluses (stylii?) thanks to a cool little convenient journal bandolier, made by Emily at Continue reading

I made my best dip the other day and felt like sharing. We ate it at our friends' house, while the football game was on. That's when I doodled. Continue reading

I found a super well-kept 1993 Volvo 240 wagon for sale but it lacks two important features: a manual transmission and a roof rack. But I keep looking. The one I used to own had over 200K miles on it,... Continue reading

I got the wooden one because of the little magnet that allows to conveniently snap it to the case of the iPad :-)

2014 has a nice ring to it. I drew a piece of our living room, the warmest spot in the house on a cold New Year's Eve. Before and after coloring. Paper app for the iPad, using Pencil. As it... Continue reading

I have been posting more on Tumblr lately than here. And because I have been test-drawing my new Pencil, I have been using the iPad almost exclusively -- hence all the drawings done on Paper by 53. Happy new year... Continue reading

I have finally received my Pencil through the mail and it's been a fun experience so far. I am preparing a full review of Pencil for which I will post a link. The mere shape of it makes so much... Continue reading

I purchased a Pencil by Fifty Three and cannot wait for it to make its way to my mailbox so I can decide whether it's a big fricken deal or not. I adopted and loved the Paper app from the... Continue reading

You'd think I've got this thing down: and ellipse at the top of the can and one at the bottom. And I still get it approximately at best. I have ordered my Pencil for the Paper app (I got the... Continue reading

There, before going to sleep tonight -- a big yawn on the iPad. My next purchase is this, by the way. Continue reading

Apparently, one can find French people outside of New York City now. They (we?!) are slowly making our way into the American suburbs, one pastry shop at a time. Paper app for the iPad. Continue reading

When you carry a sketchbook around, you welcome a text from the people you are supposed to meet that says "We're running a few minutes late". Wednesday night, Montclair, NJ. Pigma Micron 05 and watercolor in sketchbook. Continue reading

The growing mess on my desk: lesson plans, hard drives, lip balm, a candle that smells like cookies and some store receipts. I just bought a new Wacom Bamboo stylus to sketch on the iPad and I am wondering what... Continue reading

I have been drawing for my classes lately. We are doing classroom requests with my Freshmen ("Je peux recharger ma tablette, SVP?"), and in my mind, a little doodle is always better than a translation. Paper app for the iPad. Continue reading

I am not quite sure what car this is, but I am off to check. I think it's a Ford Squire. A gorgeous lady for sure. Pigma Micron 08 + watercolor in watercolor Moleskine. Continue reading
