Hell Toupee

Hell ToupeeI can’t resist a pun.

Another sketchbook sketch that I photographed, imported into Procreate on my iPad and had some fun with. I exported it from Procreate and brought it into Affinity Designer in order to do the lettering. I know that lettering can be done in Procreate, but I stuck to me comfort zone.

One of the really fun features is that the art making process can be exported as a time lapse video. Check it out:

This Thanksgiving, we had a crazy amount of side dishes – this combo of brussel sprouts and butternut squash was my favorite. Tossed in bacon grease, and pan roasted in the oven, it was easy to make and will definitely be on the menu at Christmas! Continue reading
