I've been Ryan MoonCat, but I've decided to start using my real first name instead. I have various "identities" on the net but I'd like to bring my SketchClubbing into the realm of my actual real life now. So, pleased to meet you all again.

I am Australian but I live in Japan, where I teach English at several universities. I have two small kids and get inspiration for drawing from the illustrated children's books I read with them.

I'm so grateful for this app, and just love seeing everyone's great drawings and abilities. The community is something really enjoyable to me, as most of my experience on the internet has always been adversarial, heated comments-section discussions (i.e. war) and fiery debates on politics, culture, etc... I'd forgotten that the internet can be a place with friendly communities who enjoy simply sharing an interest that's an end in itself. It's nice that everyone contributes to a friendly place in cyberspace.

I'm a glad patron of this app, and the enjoyment I get out of it daily is far greater than the cost of the app or the patronage. Seriously, there isn't much else on my iPad and iPhone from which I get as much enjoyment.

It's a little old now, but I created an iBook of nonsense poetry and illustrations made entirely on SketchClub. It's free, you can download it here:

I also illustrated my own textbook for my university classes using this great app, but that's only in a printed edition. I mention it to give credit to the app, that would allow a hack like me to be able to put his name after "illustrated by" in a printed volume!
