Thanks to the completion of a recent commission, I was able to get an incredibly usedul new tool: the Intuos Creative Stylus 2. I used it to draw this raccoon in the Procreate app (my absolute favorite art app) on my old iPad Air. This took about a week to draw (mostly on the bus and in the hours before bed. You can see a timelapse (condensed to a minute) below.
Just a little sketch I made in Procreate on an IPad Air.

This is a drawing of the mythical Phoenix, engulfed in flames after resurrection. It is based on an actual photograph I took at the San Diego Zoo. Yes, believe it or not, they have a Phoenix there, although it is of the white ecotype, is not flaming, and is erroneously labeled as a “Secretary Bird”. You can buy prints of this piece HERE.

My wife and I eloped to South Africa and Mauritius in 2014. One of the most common birds we saw in Mauritius was the red-whiskered bulbul. This particular bird was begging my wife for scraps of an apple she was eating. You can buy prints of this piece here.
This is a digital painting created in “Procreate” on an iPad Air.
