Scratch Art Camel and Zebras

Scratch art is a really fun medium to work with – it’s a board or paper coated with white then black ink so when you scratch it the white is revealed. You can go really in detail, or just do solid lines. Either way, it always has a bold, striking result. It’s also nice because you don’t have to frame them when you’re done – they look great just hanging on your wall.

I get the scratchboards from Jerry’s Artarama. They may seem expensive but they’re definitely worth it.

    Really cool. But to get the best advantage of the medium, one must be able to draw.

      Yes, I find it helpful to draw what you’re going to do first. Since you can’t erase what you do it helps to eliminate mistakes.

I've done a pitiful job of reading this year. Do you have advice on how to read more (or watch TV less) amidst stress and a tired mind? Eternal God //
Not sure what that beep is at the beginning. Sounds like an alien signal, but that's only my theory. I've become inspired to increase my piano playing's finesse, but I still have fun banging out coffee-fueled tunes over lunch break. Fun times with the family this Fourth of July.

5 & 6: Supercool fishing mom Met two cool people and was a guest on the @womenintechshow podcast yesterday! The episode will be posted in 1.5 months. Let's pretend I'm standing in front of a rack of spacesuits and am about to be shot to the International Space Station in order to conduct research on interplanetary travel and meet a delegation of aliens.
#skydiving What fun it is to sit down and sketch the first draft of a new app mockup.
⋯✦⋯
This how I design an app or software feature:
⋯
1. Recieve a brain dump from the person who has the concept. Scribble these thoughts down in bullet point format in one of my many notebooks.
.
(My current notebook is red with a vintage anatomical heart, which might seem a little goth, but I just intend for it to remind me not to be an emotionless robot in life.)
⋯
2. Sketch draft of initial app flow. I don't pay much attention to details at this point. It's intended for a high level proof of concept to make sure the features' structures I in envision in my head will work in two dimensions on the screen.
⋯
3. Create the screens as wireframes in the computer. Polish as I go to add detail and fill in gaps from the sketches.
⋯
4. Then I send for feedback and we iterate. This is my least favorite part, as often complicated technical questions come up I have to figure out, and I have to think at a high level of detail.
⋯
5. I take the final wireframes and create "pixel perfect" designs with color and fonts and pretty layout in Adobe Illustrator.
⋯
Then we're done with the mockups! Magic accomplished.
⋯✦⋯
(Please add occasional half-steps for procrastination. To rejuvenate my mind, of course. Heh. That's what I'm doing right now by making this post.) Found in the mental disorders section. Misplaced? I disagree with anyone who sees introversion as a disadvantage.
