Making A Daily Drawing

If you'd like to see how one of these drawings is made, check out this new video of the making of my most recent drawing "Dwell On It." It's kind of cool to see it in process.


  1. Gee, and I thought it was kinda like an Etch-a-Sketch.
    It great that you can make changes without having to start all over again.

  2. It's funny you should mention the Etch-A-Sketch. I use to do large-scale installations with them back in the 1980s in San Francisco. I once drew a version of the center panel of Matthias Grünewald's Isenheim Altarpiece with 12 Etch-A-Sketches mounted together in a grid... so there is a connection of sorts.

  3. Hi Stuart,

    That is very cool to see! I tried adobe ideas when I first got my iphone, but the small format with my fingers was much harder than I thought it would be. You make it look so easy!! I'm curious... how long did it take from start to finish?? Thanks for sharing :~D


    ps: I loved my etch-a-sketch too. When I got them for my kids I think I used it more than they did!

  4. Hi Sue, I've been offline all weekend and I'm just now getting to answer emails and comments. I've never tried Adobe Ideas... I'll have to look that up.

    This drawing probably took me 20 minutes from start to finish. Sometimes, as in this case, I'll start a drawing and put it down and pick it up several times depending on how busy my day is.

    I'm working on a new drawing now that I started last Friday and put down for the whole weekend! I should be posting it sometime today.

    Thanks for your comments!
