Remember the time: The 90's - Introduction

There are some times when I would sit back and think about the old days, as I remember it. I am a GenX gal, born in '79, and while I don't know much about the first ten years I do remember the good times (and of course the bad) of the '90s. I think in my humble opinion that was the most fun times, and worth looking into, an advice for the newer generation, they can simply google it on their iPhones when they ain't too busy texting or twitting or whatever it is they do these days instead of putting their God-given precious times to a better use. Aside of the bad times I endured (most notably my junior / high school years) I really enjoyed some stuff my fellow GenXers got to taste, and that is what I aim to do here on this Blogger for the next several entries, just a bit highlights of the good old '90s. Looking around in this present time it makes me really miss some things of the past, some we really took for granted. Best thing to do now is preserve those memories and hope that the present generation and beyond will get to read about it and learn something useful, or otherwise if it keeps going the way it is right now, well, God have mercy.

Sketchbook pro

So I'm trying this free version of Sketchbook Pro for iPod and well I'm pretty pleased with it. It's mucho better than that dreaded ArtRage that keep giving me headache. I get lots more control on the strokes. But since this is free I don't have whole lot of options and features, and the canvas size is pretty puny. Later soon I'll get the full version and enjoy more of all that it's got to offer. Here for now a very quick and dirty random sketch with SBP:
