An Inkling?

Check this out! Saw it in my WACOM newsletter and its now on my wish list...

The Inkling digital sketch pen is now available at Amazon

"The Inkling pen allows you to create digital sketches while working on standard paper or in a sketchbook. It's designed for the beginning stages of a creative project, when laying out new concepts. Sketches can later be transferred to your computer for refinement."         ~ Sandra Trainor,

Isn't that cool? Has anyone used this already? What do you think about it?

Quick leaf sketch

Quick leaf sketch, originally uploaded by Trish Nonaka.

Just a simple little pencil drawing I did while chatting on skype with PP before she left on vaca. I am wondering how I am going to survive without all my supplies. I am wanting to paint so much right now.

Sporadic Stuff

Life is just sporadic right now. Been deeply ingrained in the hurry and get everything done phase and just now entering the sit around and wait stage. So here I am catching my breath and updating a bit.

We have survived packing out, living with aloha furniture, visits from Daughter 1 and Remi, Tita, Mom and Dad, Bradda 2 and Jan, a family reunion of about 100 Nonakas, another series of seizures from Emi, departure of previously mentioned family members, departure of Daughter 2 (permanent) and The Cat (temporary), returning aloha furniture, shipping hold baggage, shipping one car, getting Emi to vet/boarding, staying at the beach in Ewa, picking up Emi, moving into TLF, passing final inspection of previously mentioned house, and welcoming our newest Nonaka clan member! (Keoni was born healthy and lovely this morning! She's gorgeous!)
