Made on an iPad Air with Procreate and an Adonit Jot Touch 4.
Tried it out mostly because I was curious about the capabilities and limitations of the iPad and its apps and accessories when it comes to possibly making art. Right now, I’m still figuring out how much I can do with it but figured I’d start with something small in the usual vein of what I do. I bought one thinking I could now have something to carry around to draft art. Then I figured I could see how far I could take it.
It’s not perfect but it’s pretty amazing, I think, how tinkering with the brushes til I got comfortable enough with it how natural it felt and I could achieve something I would say I could usually do on a desktop.
something I made a year ago when I was going through some stuff.
my friend Owel asked me to take a song from his band and try and draw something like that series of BREAK UP 2013 illustrations I did earlier that year. I picked the song Taksil by Ang Bandang Shirley for obvious reasons of what I was thinking and how I felt at the time. It’s the song I couldn’t get out of my head to a certain degree.
Taksil translates to traitor or betrayer. The song talks about infidelity, dealing with someone who’s hurt you in that way. It goes on for a bit asking does the person still love you, how did this happen, do they still love you, how did this happen? Just the usual thoughts when you think about someone being unfaithful whom you love. It ends eventually bargaining to the other person about who hasn’t done something wrong, please don’t leave because of your mistake. Well my interpretation anyway. It’s a great song.
Not sure if Owel’s doing anything with it anymore so I decided to post it for reasons of, well, I just remembered it existed, and that the date of when this whole messy break up thing is coming up making it officially a year since that happened. Bums me out thinking how that turned out.
Great job, Rob. Here’s to that.
Modulogeek has a new album out and it’s pay-what-you want and you should get it because Modulogeek is great
2013 (In stuff I drew this year.)
It is New Year’s and I guess it’s time to look back on how I did this year. Holy Crap did I draw a bunch of stuff.
This year was a year of firsts for me: ( first breakup, first exhibit, first job, first album cover) and I’m strangely looking forward to 2014 compared to where I was last year, fearful of the future. I feel like I’m a different person. Strange how you see how much you’ve grown. I don’t know. I feel different I suppose.
Art. Oh Art, I love you. Never leave me.
