Trying it live

I’m trying out what an iPhone can do for a blogger in Clermont-Ferrand. I don’t know yet if this will work, but here goes, anyway.

I did the drawing while waiting for a flight to Paris. I lost track of time, as I often do while drawing, and realized when I was done that everyone was already standing in line boarding the plane. Drawing as meditation is probably good for you, but missing flights is not. It’s a fine line…

(The image editing is done on the iPhone – not quite like a high quality scanner and Photoshop on a widescreen, but it will have to do for now.)

    I Think Tthat’s great.
    Did you photo only with the airport light?
    Is it only a photo or did you use some production? What software?

    • Hi Pedro, I actually photographed this under a bedside lamp at the hotel in Clermont-Ferrand, which of course made for a lousy photo. I tried to fix it a little with Snapseed, which I think is a great photo editing app, but there is only so much you can do with bad material… :)

    Hi Nina, looks ok to me. I’m looking forward to seeing how you get on over the next few days! Charlotte PS I got a noodler’s flex pen in the post the other day…

    • Hi Charlotte, nice going with the pen. I tried one of the new ones here yesterday, the nib and feed are à bit changed since I bought mine. It will be interesting to see what you do with it.

  3. That’s the perfect live technique for a “Carnet de Voyage” ! As always, skillful. Have a nice trip, full of Auvergne drawings ! JBP

  4. Hi, I really like this sketch..its amazing what you can do and publish from an airport. ..I will look forward to seeing the scanned version (this one has a greenish tinge, but worked out pretty well under the circumstances.)

  5. Very cool and realistic drawing. I really love the line work.
