Illustration Friday and App #1

I’ve abandoned my art for way too long so today I decided to set aside the work on my app a bit and participate in Illustration Friday. The word this week is “Suspend”… which got me to thinking about things that hover. Nothing is more beautiful (or dangerous) than a jellyfish suspended in the waves of the sea. This week my son started swim lessons and we began planning our vacation… so maybe the beach is on my mind.

I plan to color this digitally. I feel ashamed to admit that I haven’t done any artwork on my Wacom since I finished the illustration of the Gods in January. It’s about time I get back at it… and I’m truly excited about this one!

I finished the Chapter 1 tutorial of the Titanium Cookbook last night and built my first app. They walk you through most of the build, so it wasn’t a HUGE accomplishment. However, there were a couple errors I had to work through and I’m happy to say that I understand all of the code I’ve done so far.

Titanium LoanCalc Tutorial

NOTE: For anyone who might be following the Titanium Cookbook along with me, there was a big mistake made in Recipe 10 of Chapter 1. After hours of troubleshooting an error code, I did some online searches and found that the chart.js file for Raphael was left out of the book’s download package. The missing file can be downloaded directly at

    As you, after hours following the exercise of the LoanCalc I just got into the trouble of the missing “chart.js” file! o.O

    I cannot find it anywhere and also your link above looks like to not be working anymore. 🙁

    Would you mind helping me out getting this .js file?

    Thanks in advance,

      Did you ever find the solution to this? If not, let me know and I will see if I can figure out what is wrong. The link still seems to be working fine for me.
