FiftyThree makes some really neat stuff, like Paper, Pencil and Mix. Together, these tools provide what is easily my favorite drawing experience on my trusty iPad.
So I’m understandably honored that the fine folks at FiftyThree asked me to present a brief sketching workshop at their Portland Remixer this Thursday, February 26.
From the event description:
Come meet the FiftyThree team in Portland. We’ll have food, drinks and a special featured creator who will give insight into their work. Bringing your iPad is highly recommended for some remixing fun, learning how to get the most out of Paper and Mix, and meeting fellow creators. We’ll be at the Oregon Story Board office inside OMSI. We’ll be giving away a Pencil stylus to one lucky attendee. Hope to see you there!
I’ll be sharing some fast and easy techniques for drawing cartoons with Mix, Pencil and Paper. My Mix profile shows a bit of the tomfoolery you can expect.
The fun starts at 6pm at
the Oregon Story Board office inside OMSI Phase 2. All ages are welcome.

Update (February 4): Ignite Bridgetown has been given the axe. This article recounts the whole story. Twitter reads like a transcript of Maury today. What a mess. :(

Ignite is returning to Portland this Thursday, February 5 thanks to Portland Startup Week, and I’m happy to be among the dozen speakers invited to participate.
From the event description:
Welcome to Ignite. Where each speaker gets a chance to present for five minutes. The catch? They only get 20 slides, no more, no less. And the presentation auto-advances every 15 seconds. Whether the speaker is ready or not. Once the presentation begins, it doesn’t stop until the last speaker drops the mic. For the speaker, it’s challenging. For the audience, it’s entertaining. But no matter what happens, it’s an unforgettable experience for everyone in the theater.
I’ve attended Ignite events in the past and they’ve always been fun. This one’s at OMSI’s Empirical Theater. Tickets are free but seating is limited, so RSVP soon!

If you missed my presentation at WebVisions this year, you’re in luck! I’ll be talking about side projects again at ISITE Design on Wednesday, June 18 as part of Refresh Portland. That’s less than two weeks away!
I hope you’ll join me for this free event, and (optionally) food and drinks right after (sponsored by nGen Works). I’d love to hear about your passion project!

(Fun fact: I gave my second talk ever at the very first Refresh Portland event back in 2008. How time flies!)
I know it’s almost Labor Day weekend, but before you let your brain check out you should really add Demolicious Portland to your plans for this coming Wednesday, September 4.
I’ll be one of several creative types demonstrating a passion project on-stage for some honest and incisive feedback. I’m excited to show off a Chrome extension I’ve been building for Colorpeek. (I know I’ll use it, but I’m curious if others will, too.)
Registration is free and the fun starts at 5pm at the Mission Theater. Be there, or be considerably more square-shaped than those in attendance!
