Digital illustration. Recently my mind wandered off to Gary Cooper. So I looked him up on the internet. I came across several photos of him with actress Fay Wray in the 1928 movie, The First Kiss. Here’s a sketch of one. Done on the Apple iPad using Adobe Fresco.

We took a lot of photos while at the Houston zoo. I combined several to come up with this drawing for Creating Grand Memories. Click on image to enlarge. Copyrighted Digital illustration

French-American dancer and actress Leslie Caron. I was thinking of a strong line running through the middle with just enough thinner detail to identify the person. I think the center lines could have been thicker; could have been fewer thin lines. Digital illustration
People have asked how I draw on an iPad. Here is a brief explanation:
I was driving in traffic and saw a landscape company truck with a logo of a tree with big giant leaves. The leaves looked like hands to me. When I got home I sketched this out on my iPad. Click on image to enlarge. Digital illustration
I was watching an old John Wayne movie and the girl-interest was Mary Kornman. I looked her up and discovered she had been one of the Little Rascals of The Our Gang series. I found a photo of her I thought was precious and decided to draw her.
This is Louise Brooks. She was an actress in the 1920s and 30s. A true “flapper girl.“ She helped popularize the bob hairstyle. Apparently, she was something of a hedonist. But I didn’t draw her because of all that. I just thought she was pretty. Click on image to enlarge. Digital illustration
