    Illustration Friday: Fluid (and visual puns)

    For this week’s Illustration Friday (which I need to make a habit!), I thought this illustration I happened to be working on was a fit for the week’s topic, which is fluid.

Get in on that for occasional, non-spammy, and non-annoying updates: http://facebook.com/regsilvadotcomย ๐Ÿ™‚

    Illustration Friday: Messenger

    In an effort to get back to Illustration Friday, I am shamelessly re-posting an old drawing as it’s a fit for this week’s topic, Messenger. I drew this a year ago on Odosketch, a simple, online drawing app with limited, muted colors and no undo function.   Throwing in an unrelated, just-finished drawing also made on Odosketch. It’s a drunk cat! No particular reason for the drawing but I did just buy a couple of bottles of San Mig Light just waiting to be opened (which I will get to after I post this) ๐Ÿ˜€   The interesting thing about Odosketch is that you can replay your drawing stroke by…
