Feb 25, 2017: Giselle - a pencil portrait by Jude Cowell

Now this capture using my phone didn't turn out as clearly as I wanted but since 'Giselle' is a crop of a large drawing of mine (Giselle and Margot from 1995! Unscene World was my first imprint), you can barely see a smidgeon of a second figure, Margot. The original drawing on white paper is approximately 18" x 24" and cannot be placed in a regular scanner bed, hence the soft focus photo:

Then It Must Be Time for a Hen Party!

July is here and hot and it seems that an ancient drawing of mine has turned up to celebrate our two-week political conventions going on as I type. Bet Republicans and Democrats won't meet any delegates like these who are having an annual ladies-only Hen Party!

Secret Moon Art still cosmic!

Secret Moon Art Isn't Really Abandoned, Y'Know!

by Jude Cowell

Although SMA hasn't been updated since November 2012, as of yet, my art studio isn't fully set up for new drawings due primarily to two concerns: 1. massive amounts of Political Astrology horoscopes to study and write about since last year into this year; and, 2. helping care for the little fellow whose photo you see below!

So in lieu of what is at the moment only an incomplete drawing on my art table, here's something of a classic for you: When the White Bird Returns to the White Tree:

He says Hello with an Ay-y-y-y!

My first Kindle Fire photo app experiment!



Here’s my first photo taken with the Kindle Fire photo app of an older drawing of mine, Faye & Toni, which is displayed on a wall at the moment (which is why the image is slanted and rather odd looking.)

Colored pencil on white paper isn’t my usual mode as you may know for I tend to prefer the depth of colored pencil on black paper. Still, the ladies do seem quite happy, don’t they? (Or can you tell with those blubbery lips?)  Winking smile

Now this drawing and several others on white paper were perpetrated between 1995 and 1999 and are too large to fit in a home scanner bed. The size of this image is 18” H by 24” W so you see what I mean: no scanning, no publishing in my online galleries.

But since I have the Kindle photo app to play with, perhaps I’ll show  you photo-app’d facsimiles of my larger never-before-published drawings from the late 90s and beyond. In fact, it may be fun for me and somewhat surprising for you.

Oh, and if you’re experienced using a similar app for a tablet, please leave a comment on this blog if you wish with handy hints for better photo-taking for I’d definitely appreciate it!

Your experimental ‘photographer’,

'Fairy in Rain' now a throw pillow!

Updat DEc 11, 2021: my apologies! Half the content of this post has been deleted by yours truly because Zazzle no longer supports the widget. But hopefully, the widget below with my drawing Hidden Garden, a-pillowed, will tarry here a while longer! Jude

And Hidden Garden has gone cushy pillowy, too, as you see!
