Looking for a unique artisan gift? You can find my note cards and prints in local Cleveland shops listed below. The themes include Cleveland landmarks, carousel horses from the Euclid Beach Carousel, nature scenes from the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes, Chagrin Falls landmarks, and other subjects.

The images are photography that is manipulated using iPad art apps, and some are then put into graphic design layouts.

The Effects of Waterlogue

October 22, 2014

By Janet Dodrill

Have you heard of the iPhone and iPad app called Waterlogue? The app converts your photos into beautiful watercolor-like images. It is published by Tinrocket, LLC and was co-created by John Balestrieri (Tinrocket, LLC) and Robert Clair (Chromatic Bytes, LLC). Available on iTunes for $2.99, it has a 4+ customer rating.

It is one of my favorite art apps to use. I create custom note cards using images that I first shoot on the iPad and then run them through Waterlogue.

Below are a few images (before and after) I created using various filters in the app.

The Nature Center at Shaker Lakes Series

June 23, 2014

Update, August 23, 2014: The digital art series mentioned in this blog post will be displayed at a future date at the Nature Center. The work on display there during ‘Raiders of the Lost Art’ exhibit includes my traditional oil paintings, acrylics, drawing and lino-cut prints, in addition to the work of Eugenia Vainberg and members of The Western Reserve Calligraphers Club.

A few months ago I brought some art work in for consignment at the gift shop, the Duck Pond, at the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes. Bringing only nature-themed work, the work includes note cards, lino-cut prints, art prints, mini oil paintings and wreaths.

Since then, I developed a new body of work. With an iPad, I photographed nature on the premises of the Nature Center, ran them through an art app, and created what I call ‘The Nature Center at Shaker Lakes Series.’ Some of these images are currently for sale in the gift shop on large note cards.

My contact there asked if I would participate in a group art exhibit in their gallery, for works that are nature-based, entitled ‘Raiders of the Lost Art’ running August 18 through November 7, 2014. Some of the images from this series will be enlarged to include in the show.

The Nature Center is located at 2600 South Park Boulevard, Shaker Heights, Ohio 44120, www.shakerlakes.org.

Recently, I picked up the iPad and started drawing, using primarily two art apps, ArtStudio ($4.99) by Lucky Clan (raster-based), and Inkpad (FREE) by Taptricks, Inc. (vector-based). I created together a series of images and presented them at a meeting about art apps titled A Quick Tour of Art Apps for iPad, at Cleveland Digital Publishing Users Group (CDPUG) on March 27, 2014.

Here are some of my iPad images.
