Digital Art Cat Speedpainting
Recently I downloaded the free streaming video software, CamStudio. Using that, my Wacom tablet, and GIMP, I recorded the short time-lapse painting video below.
Check out some of my other videos at my new YouTube Channel: Jayme ART :]
I’m planning to record a video to answer the few random questions I’ve gotten about my art/process and myself over the years. I thought it would be fun to answer them in video format. Besides, I need to make a new intro video for my YouTube Channel, and I might use the resulting video. So, if you have a question for me you’d like to see answered, ask away. I’ll do my best to answer it.
* I’m going to add links in the video description to the blogs or YT channel of people who post questions for me. If you don’t want to be linked let me know, and if you do, let me know your blog or TY Channel address.
Grumpy Astronaut Bear Vector, made with Inkscape
This is my sixth Inkscape vector to post so far. I made this yesterday while working on a bear shirt design. This vector was one of the different styles I was trying out. It sort of reminded me of a two year old at bedtime. Anyway, I had fun making it, hope you like it.
From the Odosketch page:
Friends & Supporters,
After an amazing eight years and over 600,000 sketches we are sad to say that we are retiring Odosketch.
Odosketch was the love child of a handful of amazing people at Odopod. Over the years, our focus has changed and we have come to the difficult realization that Odosketch no longer has a significant role to play in our future.
We want to thank you for all of your support and, more importantly, your drawings. They’ve been a source of inspiration and countless laughs.
For those of you that would like to save your drawings there are two options detailed below. Be sure to collect your images before August 30, 2013. They will no longer be available after that date.
The Odosketch Crew
So long Odosketch, It was fun while it lasted!
You can see some of the other sketches I made at Odosketch here.
My daughter and I decided it might be fun to make puppets. We had ideas of what we’d like them to look like, however we hadn’t made puppets out of these materials before. It was fun. We figured it out as we went and picked up some tips for next time. The following film highlights our experience puppet making.
Randa said she would share the template she made. I sort of winged it with mine but could make one too. I’ll probably add those, and some details on how we made these later. Just wanted to make this quick post before heading out-of-town. Hope you’re having a great weekend.
How we made dino puppets:

Doodling around with MyPaint and came up with this guy. Not sure if he’s bowling or breaking out of prison.
Owl and Pussycat Illustration
For fun I decided to illustrate a couple of versions of a poem I read in grade school. Here’s one:The Owl and the Pussy Cat is a poem by Edward Lear.
You Tube has made a few more changes recently, following the major changes they made back in December. As with all platform changes, some YT creators/users are happy about it some are not. I’m fairly neutral about it, however I did like the personalized backgrounds better. They say it will be a ‘cleaner, simpler look’ though.
One of the updates to your YouTube channel:
1) Create a channel trailer to get people to subscribe
On your new channel, you can show a trailer that will only appear to viewers who aren’t already subscribed to your channel. This is your chance to let visitors know what your channel is all about and tell them why they should subscribe! Keep it short and to the point, and include a clear call to action inviting your audience to subscribe.
My YouTube intro video was old, so I made a new one yesterday.
Do you have a channel? What do you think about the changes?
