Studio: Watermelon Blobs

Photoshop CC for the win! + 2020 is a crapshoot

Holy heckin’, well, 2020 has been really weird – obviously. Right before covid-19 crossed the ocean and hit Canada, I got super addicted to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (for Nintendo Switch) and so I haven’t painted a lot, but I have been making some digital art. There is a lot to unpack for this year, so I will just share a “recent” digital painting that I completed in Photoshop using my Wacom Cintiq 22.

What’s new?

So much and yet so very little. Today’s newness includes yet another revamp of my website, mostly to make it more mobile-friendly. I was selected to be in the Artspot Under $100 Art Show for December 2-6, 2020 but it was postponed due to the second covid-19 wave happening in Alberta. Our infection numbers are really high right now based on our population (approx 1500-1800 a day for a population of under 4.5 million). I’ve been frustrated with WordPress continually and almost jumped ship to Squarespace, but I really do not like paying a company to host my website.

I framed approximately 100 pieces of art for the Under $100 show and, due to it being postponed and/or cancelled, I will be posting the work on my website for sale. The pieces will be under $100 for the most part, and all of the paper works are framed. I picked up a bunch of silver metal frames from an estate sale for all of my paper works and they worked out great for sizes like 6x8s and 9x12s.

Next post…

I will make a giant post about what I’ve been doing in 2020 and what my plans are for 2021. I’ve wanted to post some art supplies and equipment reviews as well, including a review about the Wacom Cintiq 22. One big thing about the Wacom products is that you NEED to have a powerful PC to use them with, otherwise the Cintiq does not perform well.

Ta ta for now…
