iPad Drawings


I was introduced to Adonit’s +JotPro by mchiaviello a few weeks ago and I went crazy, no seriously. I just started painting almost daily. It was a xmas gift by passionsista.

Here are some of the work that I’ve been experimenting with (I hope to get better), they are all drawn on the iPad.


Testing the Inkling


I got a new toy this week. It’s the Wacom Inkling if you don’t know what it is, check out the video:

I was finally able to do a few tests with the inkling so here’s one that came out pretty decently (if you noticed from the original it lost the earrings that I sketched in last minute):

I like that I can export it into Photoshop, Sketchbook pro and Illustrator. Not only that, I can replay my sketch!

Here’s a quick video that I did with the player:

I hope to post some more soon after I’ve spent time mastering it.

Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil


I completed a new series of paintings which I started a few weeks ago last night.

I used purple and yellow hues to compliment the colors in my bedroom.

To add something signature, I decided to make it glow under black light. I know, abit creepy but a fun twist.

I love Black Light Paint, this is the finish product:

To be honest, I loved the progression before applying the lines but nonetheless, it’s now a great addition to my bedroom walls.

The black light makes it a little ghouly and fun.

Artist Trading Cards

Trading Cards

A few months ago Gardenia sent out an invitation for us to make artist trading cards.

I’ve never done this before but I love crafts :).

I accepted the invitation and today I gathered my glue, paper, sharpies, shears, scrap book paper and went over.

Of course we had wine to get the creativity thinking going. Here’s what we ended up with:


Have you ever made any? Send me a few photos: jerlynthomas[at]gmail.com I’d love to see!

Food on my desk illustrations

Sharpies and Markers

You must have heard about the hurricane on the east coast: Hurricane Irene.

I’m writing this post in the middle of it and nothing crazy is happening so far but I spent all day cleaning my apartment and sorting my art supplies. I got inspired and decided to draw food that I have had on my desk.

Some of my Sharpies

My Touch Colors, micropens and Prismacolors

Grilled Veggies

Balsamic Chicken & Avocado Sandwich

Jerk Chicken

I kind of like this project. I know there’s no particular style right now but I’d love to continue drawing them.

Anyway, I hope that I’ll be posting after Irene. I’ve been through many hurricanes but all in the Caribbean. Quite curious to see what happens in NYC.
