The very evil Mr. Fly.  A Morning wake up doodle that buzzed around through the day.

I like audiobooks. Which is an odd start to a doodle blog.... But I've just listened to Trigger Mortis (part liked, but I worked out the end by the middle and if you're aware of a certain graphic novel Times best seller then you already know the end to TM too).

Yesterday, as well as finishing the audiobook, and drawing a number of pictures on the new Amazon Fire 7” tablet, I drew this on my trusty HTC One M8 phone using a number of apps.

I started with the pic above drawn in the very lovely web app Webchemy. It's a strange interface/tool, hard to get a finished picture straight from the program (although by no means impossible. Google it and you'll find some fab pictures). In this case I doodled this while drinking a coffe

Over my second coffe of the day I threw the picture through one of my favourite mobile (and desktop) apps: ArtRage. Still on phone.

At the end of the day I sat down with the picture and changed the background, which was a little unthreatening. I also added three of his four wings, hopefully hinting at what had led this fly on a course of pure evil. Still ArtRage, still on phone. I'll stop saying that now... Basically until I've made this Slate it was all on the phone.

Ah I lie. How like Mr Fly. The above image was thrown through Photoshop Fix, Adobe's latest app devoted to photo editing on iOS. Announced at MAX yesterday I couldn't resist giving it a play through.

And then, finally, I threw some of the images through Autostitch and the result into Snapseed. I wasn't keen on the first edit (above) but liked the second (below):

So there you have it. The short life of Mr Fly, most disgusting and buzzy of Mr Bond's pantheon of enemies, and his flight through Webchemy, ArtRage, Autostitch, Photpsop Fix, Snapseed and, now, Slate. Drawn over a (spectacularly bad) day at work in my breaks when I needed to draw something.

Hope you like. Now I need to buzz off back to work in the hopes of finding some good stuff.
