"Finding Love on Sunshine Street." I colored this pen & ink drawing using a Wacom pen & tablet with Rebelle by Escape Motions. This software simulates water on paper and reacts just like real paint!

See the textures, drips, and bleeds? This happens naturally in Rebelle. Wet color bleeds into neighboring paint and reacts to the paper surface, plus it has "undo," layers and .PSD support which are critical for illustration work since clients often request changes. Rebelle is amazing. Highly recommended.
Way back in '88 I was staying up late,
Playing games like Donkey Kong (and of course Pac-Man was great!)
Smashing barrels, chomping dots, chased by Blinky, eating Clyde-
Climbing ladders, jumping fire all to make that princess mine!
Boom Box in the room and we're putting it on blast,
Eating pizza, drinking beer & we're hoping both will last.
Rocking beats from the past, now the party's all set,
Let us breakdance to the sound of an analog cassette!
Sometimes just a spot of color keeps things light, not overworked. And red.
Standing on a Jeep but these days a Jeep's not cheap,
I took a peep at the price and it was almost 30 grand!
I took a leap 'cause I'm a fan and bought it for my family,
And now we're driving through the sand on our way out to the sea!
Three Islands. A paradise and a nice quiet place to go.
But alas, it's not in my fate because work is all I know.
I heard the call and chose to draw these drawings 'til I die,
To live by the pen, I survive by painting sunshine in the sky.
Bird Man walking in the red sky,
He's not sure if he's dead or if he just wants to die,
And he's drinking so much wine he can feel it in his chest...
Sick of being nothing but a Helper at the Nest.
Can you feel the heat? We're dancing at the party on Concrete Street!
That girl is out of line! I think she's lost her mind!
She's riding on a bug and flapping arms like she can fly!
She's got a pack of ghosts with a smile on her face,
And our fate is in the hands of Crowned Man Frowning in a cape!
My friend, the responsible thing to do...
When buying a new pen is to sell another two.
So then my friend named "Harry M." bought one pen,
And he asked me to paint a Ghost-Terrarium for him.
That's when I took the new pen to a Moleskine page...
And drew a family of ten trapped in a ghost-shaped happy cage!
Ghost Circle. Drawn using a Platinum 3776 Century SF with Noodlers 41 Brown ink. Painted with Prima Watercolor "Decadent Pies."
