Doodling For My Gravatar

19 Jul

This week I finally drew an image to use as my Gravatar that I have had floating around in my head for at least two years. I had scribbled a bit with pen and ink, but hadn’t perfected the image nor got around to scanning and uploading my image to my blog. Using a awesome app called Paper (I mentioned this is previous posts – Doodling) I “drew” my picture of a red headed woman with red lips wearing a white lab coat dotted with red lip prints. Lipstick on my lab coat! I was really pleased with my “drawing.” So much so I am now using this as my Gravatar and my photo / image on my Twitter (@LipstickLabCoat) and Tumblr (Lipstickonmylabcoat) accounts.



Romance Amongst The Dunes?

19 Jul

Inspired by my previous post – Archaeology, I was thinking, “should I write a story of archaeological adventure, romance and bygone eras?” Perhaps I will. I started doodling with a drawing of sand dunes and some prose popped into my head – “She came to me from across the sand dunes. A lone figure amongst the vast desert. My heart beat faster. I longed to hold her and show her my finds…….”

I recently downloaded and purchased some funky apps for my Ipad.One app, Paper, allows you to draw (with pencil, pen and watercolour) options. The other, Text Drawing, allows you write and minimally draw using text. I have been familiarising myself with the apps and created some artwork in the process. Pretty basic looking, but I’m rather proud of the rainbow coloured (fitting really) text compilation.
