Urban Sketching on an iPad

I love my little dog. I really do. So when you see me do something that looks like torture to the poor thing, please don't hate me.

It's for his protection. I mean he squints in the sun and he swims in (ugh) lake water. So we got him these wonderful mini swim goggles, just like the kind Michael Phelps wears, right?

Only Miles did not see the connection. In fact, I'm not really sure what he actually could see through those tinted orange lenses.

If Superman's color of peril is "green" (Kryptonite), then surely my dog Miles' color of peril has got to be "orange" because once we strapped these on his head, he froze in place like we had just administered some kind of corporal punishment.

So, long story short, we took the goggles off of him--right after I captured this image on my iPad. No, I didn't make him wait that long. I snapped a photo of him, threw off the goggles, or "doggles," and gave him hugs and kisses.

Sketched on my iPad using the "Paper" app by fifty-three. Awesome app, by the way, in case you are thinking of adding the iPad to your Urban Sketch Kit. If you'd like to learn more about what I have learned on the iPad for sketching, send me a reply and ask away.


  1. HAhaha! Made me laugh! Great drawing and great post! My love to Miles!

  2. Thanks for giving me a morning chuckle! Miles looks adorable.
    It is one of the best I pad drawings I have seen on USK.
