The @smashingpumpkins have a new album out today and I illustrated them for @ringer. It’s easy to be swept away by the band’s own visual worlds and symbols, so AD @akathemaskedman’s direction for a performance portrait was a gift.

After the swipe are a time lapse of sketches on @procreate and the new iPad Pro, and then the original ink painting with sumi-e ink and brush.

Can the best tool for writing and drawing - practices that benefit from focused attention, reflection and openness - also be one that offers infinite options, capabilities and mobility?
.
Does having the promise of endless Instagram feeds, Netflix, Spotify, news feeds, undoing, redoing, recoloring, swiping, scrolling in the same surface where I’m doing the work of staring into space and out of windows help or hinder disciplined deliberation?
.
The competition for drawing on the new iPad pro isn’t just the piece of paper or diary. It’s everything else that’s possible inside the machine, and life continuing without you immediately beyond your screen. Everything else that is competing for attention.
.
I have been changing my relationship to the new iPad pro by keeping it, as much as possible, a dedicated single purpose device. One that for all of its possibility, I can use its power, flexibility and convenience with deliberate control for how I’d like to think, feel and work with the machine.

Staring into space, out the window today, the first snow fall in New York.

“Everyone has three lives: a public life, a private life and a secret life.” When I started working more with the new iPad pro and @Procreate, I knew it'd continue helping my most public work. But how could it also support the private and personal roles of picture-making in my life? My friends know that I diligently carry a journal in my back pocket wherever I go, but I also keep a reckless personal visual journal on my desk and more recently have been recording dreams.
.
Recent dreams have been streaked with one particular anxiety - indefensibly, exploitatively indulging in luxuries whilst completely conscious of a world in deficit. In these dreams I’m ordering superfoods, singing karaoke and hoarding gardens while the world burns.
.
I got lost in far too much noodling, enamored by the novelty of playing with a new toy. I imagine that as the sparkle of all of my iPad pro’s possibilities settles and ceases to be such a tempting distraction to explore, I’d have a chance of comfortably embracing it into my private and personal practice.
.
To do that, I’d also have to better negotiate two major competing reasons to pick up a piece of paper instead. I’ll speak to that next time!

This Veteran's Day coincides with the centenary of the end of WWI, the 'war to end all wars.' This image reflects on that 100 year old promise for peace with poppies, the first flower to grow on the battlefields, against a field of modern camouflage.

I began this to explore how @procreate and the new iPad Pro could help me develop an isometric repeating pattern. As I noodled away, I was inevitably swept up in the both the unsettling spectacle of US politics and the moderation of my day to day slog in NYC. Here’s an ode to the green lights that guide us.
.
“Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter--tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther.... And one fine morning-- So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”

The midterms are fast approaching this November 6th.
The last time that I contributed to @govote , I had read that polling locations influenced how voters felt about issues, with implicit signalling. People who voted in schools were more likely to support education policies and funding. People who voted in churches were less supportive of same sex marriage and stem cell research. Imagine voting in galleries, shelters and hospitals! Wherever you find yourself, take this opportunity to educate yourself on who and what will be significantly shaping your world and make yourself heard this November 6. If you’re going to be away, you have until Sunday to request an absentee ballot.
.
I took this opportunity to get acquainted with the new iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, as well as the new @procreate . I’m excited to see what else I can do, so check back to see what I can come up with as I feel my way through this bold new world!
