  ["Oh, sorry, I'm getting a call."]

October 05, 2013

Yes, I do carry paper in my pocket in case I need to make notes. And yes, I do sometimes pull it out and move my finger around it when 3 or more people start to do that. And yes, after seeing the pale blue glow on people's faces this past week at a bar, I realized I could improve the effect by shining my little flashlight through the paper onto my face. One of my friends even said the effect wasn't too bad. Oh, and when I want to "look up something" I'll usually just write the answer on the paper and then proudly show people the result.

I was also motivated to try to see if I could capture the pale glow using photoshop. I think it's not bad. I used layers and gradients. I also decided to make the table have some texture, and found some wood images and played with that a bit. I didn't really want to get into the colors too much, so the main characters were mostly just shaded with ink. This all went fairly fast, just a couple hours.

I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.

Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't. I don't care.
If you want to see the image without the annoying blue-lined background image, just click on the image.
