Sometimes just a quick tessellation exercise is required to limber up the creative force. A favourite one is Louis Cubes. This pattern was created with KaleidoPaint and Pixelmator, both, great apps on a tablet.Continue reading
Hey, nice fish. Do you catch and release? Bit of exageration going on in the drawing as well as in reel life.
