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.

This week at WebVisions Portland, I’ll be giving a brand-new talk called Side Projects That Ship:
Starting a side project is easy. Finishing one? That’s a whole lot tougher. Is there a secret to being prolific part-time? What separates the countless projects languishing on hard drives from the few that see the light of day? In this dynamic session, you’ll learn how to identify your best ideas, focus on the right goals, eliminate cruft and maintain your interest level so you can complete your labor of love without losing sleep, your job or your mind.
I’m currently scheduled for Friday, May 9 at 1:15pm. I hope you’ll join me for a fun and frank discussion of what it takes to finish our passion projects!
The day before, I’ll be appearing at OMSI with my Backabit cohort Tim Sears for Play/Interact, an event celebrating Oregon digital creativity. We’ll be showing Lotsa Blocks, Ramps and a very early prototype we’ve never shown publicly. The event is free with the price of museum admission, see OMSI’s event page for more info.
