It's a simple pleasure - I make these pictures on my Samsung Note using the basic SMemo program. The limitations, I have found, give me great freedom. I started playing with the phablet (phone/tablet - it's got a little stylus) as soon as I could get my hands on one - which is about 18 months ago. It's a mobile studio - fits in my pocket!
In the beginning my images were rather messy, clunky, experimental. Over time they have become a little more easy, interesting, evocative. I found a form of artistic expression (a modern one), that I have stuck with, practiced at, until good results started appearing with regularity.
I don't really know where these pictures will lead. I have done over two and a half thousand so far. A recent off shoot is that I have been using them in my single page comics - Mind's I. This has proved enjoyable and productive, also. I have done over one hundred of these in the last five months. It's a challenging/satisfying merging of image, concept and words.
I also enjoy choosing an image every few days for this blog. Somehow it will relate to what I am saying. Sometimes, I have a preconcept, other times I use the picture as a catalyst for my informal rambling.
Blackswan, laughing woman, helicopter. See! There's a seamless symmetry!
