The other day, I learned about Tayasui Sketches for iPad and decided to download and play around with this app. Not only is the app free, but also I find it much more intuitive than some of the other drawing apps I’ve tried. So I thought I’d share some of my doodles. Enjoy!

Here is a brief update on my current creative projects and endeavors…!
Wednesday, October 24th
- Uploaded portfolio to this blog.
- Requested invite from DreamUp.com (not at all sure how this will turn out…).
- Did some online research about zines, printers, etc.
- Working on submission to Fantagraphics.
- Continuing to work on some upcoming blog posts and project ideas.
- Meeting with Gabe went very well as always. Gabe took the time to cut and paste his entire story, Elias & The City of Cats, into a children’s book format to give me a better idea of what I need to illustrate. From this prototype, I’ll start working on a rough sketch storyboard!
- Applied to the Big Bear Lake International Film Festival Screenwriters Competition. Information updated on “Applications” post, here.
- Completed submissions package for Fantagraphics. Now, I just have to put in the mail!
- Scanned character preliminary design for Elias and Ignis of Elias & The City of Cats. With this design, I was just experimenting with some Commedia dell’Arte (Pierrot & Harlequin) costumes which most likely won’t appear in the final children’s book. But Gabe seems to really like this image and wants to make some t-shirts. Any interest?
- Last night and today, working on rough sketch storyboard for Elias & The City of Cats.
- Did some experimenting with animation app on iPad.
- Worked on figuring out the crazy California ballot (so many props!) so that I can vote early tomorrow.
- Had a wonderful time with Wes today! Ate dinner at The Corner Store — both had these amazing “Grasshoppers” (crème de menthe, absinthe, chocolate, and vanilla ice cream). Can’t wait to see him again on Halloween! （○゜ε＾○）
- I voted today!!
- Dropped submissions package for Fantagraphics in the mail!
- Applied for a part-time writing job. Wish me luck!
- Working on rough sketch storyboard for Elias & The City of Cats.
- Discovered that my short screenplay Death Is No Bad Friend made it to the Kaos Films British Short Screenplay Competition 2nd Round Qualifiers (announced earlier this month). I have no idea how many rounds this competition is, but does that mean that judge Sir Kenneth Branagh has read my screenplay? (｡♥‿♥｡)
- Responded to a film director on Craigslist looking for a short screenplay, and got an almost immediate response of interest. Hoping this will be successful!
- Sent an e-mail to Scout Books enquiring about collaboration and their Good Ink’s literary line.
- Completed rough sketch storyboard for Elias & The City of Cats.
- Happy Halloween!!! I had a great time at Wes’s house’s pretty dorky party, even though I don’t think anyone recognized my Daria costume (even though Shannon Woodward and Katy Perry dressed as Daria and Jane without my prior knowledge). Plus, Wes gave me a belated birthday present — meet Charles, the British alpaca!!

- Also, my mom’s (Irene Zweig) new postcards (see below) came in the mail!

As you may recall, I’ve just developed a new, little obsession with bats and that I’ve been considering developing a character called “Fluffernutter the Bat” [see post here]. Well, over the past few days, I’ve been working on some preliminary character designs for Fluffernutter!
These designs were facilitated by a recent purchase of a stylus for my iPad. Since then, I’ve been experimenting with 53’s Paper app and the Art Rage app (as seen in Mac commercials). I’ve also downloaded an animation app, and plan to experiment with Fluffernutter in motion!
Furthermore, I’m thinking of eventually designing a Fluffernutter t-shirt. So I definitely welcome any comments, feedback, or constructive criticism you may have.
My most successful design so far…
