Lochlan Mellow

Dear Everyone-We-Know,

The evolutionary legacy of an upright posture,
a clever mind
opposable thumbs,
acute visual sense,
a talent for pattern-finding
and a love of metaphor
Has been passed down through
an exploded star,
a planet,
life,
to chordates,
to mammals,
to apes,
to humans,
to Michelle and Glendon,
and finally, on January 20th 2014 at 9:20pm to Lochlan Charles Follett Mellow.

                             


Lochlan Mellow has entered the universe's history at 7 lb 12 oz , to the
delight of his family and has all the potential in the world to be a
tool-user, a thinker, a metaphor-maker, an artist, a scientist, a poet, and most likely a source of surprise. 

He joins his excited, caring brother <a href="

Thanks to everyone online and off, for their words of support and enthusiasm. Most of all, our deepest thanks to the nurses, doctors, specialists and students at Mount Sinai Hospital here in Toronto. Both of our sons arrived in the same delivery room (Go room 7!) to talented, kind, enthusiastic faces ready to greet him and show Michelle every courtesy. You all rock.

Assassin's Creed iPad sketch


                                       
Quick Assassin's Creed fanart this morning. Using markers in ArtRage for iPad. With my Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus. 

I did the figure first, but here are the background layers: 

                                        

And for fun, in sepia using the Halftone app: 

                                        
Hmm: dispersion of shadows and highlights is too chaotic. Sketchy sketch is sketchy.

Working on this for my son, who is a huge Rescuebot fan. Boulder is always the curious, sensitive one.
