Sketchin it up on the iPad

Recently my friend bought an iPad. Being the gadget fiend I am, I pilfered some time with it. It’s an impressive device! And if I was rich, or had some (meaning “any”) cash flow, one would certainly be added to my Amazon Wish List asap.

In the meantime, I am happy to borrow and play with all sorts of fun apps. And yes, there IS an app for just about everything. But then again, the Android Market has an app for just about anything and their programs are usually much cheaper and/or free.

Anyhow, here’s my very first doodle using an iPad…

It’s a Picasso, right? (Heavy on the sarcasm there…)

An open letter – The evolution of the #NewTwitter


Hmmm… I don’t like the #NewTwitter layout. It takes up WAY too much screen real estate. I really think people/companies/brands enjoy Twitter because it’s simple. Quite the opposite of Facebook where they are constantly changing things to confuse people. The proof is shown by the uproar in the Twitter-verse whenever Facebook decides to move things around and “improve” the website interface.

Once average Twitter users get familiar with the online simple (i.e. I guess now the Old Twitter) format of Twitter, they can download applications for their computers, cell phones, netbooks or add-ons for their internet browsers. They can “step up” to whatever interface appeals to them or continue to post via Basically, it’s great to have an API that works for both beginner internet folks and power users.  And I see this New Twitter as an attempt to evolve into those downloadable applications.

My Weekly Playlist – Music to drive by

Since it’s Labor Day weekend and many people will be spending hours behind the wheel of the family truckster… I figured this would be the perfect time to share my favorite “Driving Music”.

Driving music for me usually fits into one of two areas — you can either sing along with it (even if you are completely tone-deaf like me, which makes even my dog cover his ears) or it’s upbeat, bouncy, and seems to help the miles fly by.

  • The entire Classified album by Bond
  • Stop the Rock by Apollo 440
  • You’re the Only One by Maria Mena
  • Moulin Rouge soundtrack
  • Tape Song by The Kills
  • Drive by Incubus
  • Gives You Hell by The All-American Rejects
  • You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid by The Offspring

Have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend!

Welcome to Moleskine Monday: You in 5 Words

Welcome to Bionic Style’s very first Moleskine Monday feature! Each week I’ll feature a bit of news, artwork, or journaling tips from the popular brand of little black notebooks. Of course, you don’t have to be a Moleskine fan to enjoy the series. Any and all notebook and journaling fanatics are welcome!

I posted this sketchnote from my Moleskine journal on Bionic Beauty last week – What five words would you use to describe yourself?

Being the verbose gal that I am, I couldn’t limit myself to just five words. So I picked the five I identified with most strongly and then had fun creating a word jumble to incorporate the rest.

Here are my top five words…

  1. Geeky
  2. Strong
  3. Creative
  4. Happy
  5. Intense

What words describe you? (Click for a larger version of my Moleskine sketch)

As you can see, I enjoy doodling in my Moleskine. This sketchnote incorporates pencils (of various hardness), gouache paints (the purple in “stronger”), paint pens, and a variety of fountain pens and inks.

Feel free to share your own links below to any journal or Moleskine artwork you’ve created!
