I have been playing around with a free app called Folioscope . I am still learning how to use it but it sure is a lot of fun. If you have an iPad, give it a try.

The King Turns 100
Jack "King" Kirby would have been 100 years old on August 28th. He was the greatest and the most prolific comic book artist of all time as far as I'm concerned. This original art drawn by Jack Kirby and inked by Wallace Wood is on my wall. I am so grateful I met Jack Kirby when I was a kid and I am so happy I have this piece of art.

I am using an animation app on my iPad called Folioscope. This app is a lot of fun to use and it really enhances creative thinking. The company that develops it recently added the feature to remove the annoying adds for less than $3.00.

One of my hobbies is making wallpapers for my computer. This one I made a while back, it is a close-up of a panel from one of my comics. I think the wallpaper still looks good. I also made the hard drive icon that you see in this shot. I'm considering sharing some of my wallpapers as free downloads. Let me know if you would be interested in this.

The Big Meet
I love technology. I used Photoshop which is installed on my iMac, but used my iPad so I could draw in bed. I used a pretty good app called AstroPad, which makes my ipad a remote tablet. My iPad screen became an extension of my ipad. Love it. I then went back to the iMac and continued to work on the using products from Retrosupply Co. In this case, I used a Photoshop action titled RetroMatic and used a RetroSupply freebie called WWII Paper Supply to add texture in the background.
