The Apple Pencil is My New Obsession

The past year I've been trying to "up my game" in regards to my illustration work. 

It was a natural progression of paper and ink, to watercolor, then I wanted to get digital. I found the Wacom tablets to be too expensive and required a computer. 

Then, I started to notice that my favorite illustrators were singing praises to Apple for the Apple Pencil. I decided to invest.

I AM NOW OBSESSED. It is the most comfortable and natural way to draw digitally that I've ever experienced.

I also find that Procreate has loads of tools from pencils to brushes to "flick" techniques. I love how the pencil option lets you shade on the side while also doing a pressure sensitive "hard" and "soft" line. 

Lastly, you do not need a computer, it even records the drawing, and records the time spent on each drawing. Amazing!

I am really enjoying how much improvement I've made since I've had this tool in my toolbox.

If you're on the fence about getting one, I would absolutely encourage it! 

Happy Drawing!

Hi Guys! I'm back + The Suitcase Rummages

Hi guys!

I've recently made a conscious effort to be more involved in the art community and share more of my work. Soooo, I'm just saying hi, and that I will be posting more artsy stuff on this page! 

My new sketchbook and my new watercolor postcards

My new sketchbook and my new watercolor postcards

 I bought my new journal from these girls. They repurpose books as sketchbooks. They had a stand set up at the "Suitcase Rummages" in Brisbane.

The watercolor postcards I found on sale at the local art and craft store. Considering I am travelling a lot I was excited to find a postcard I could make myself and send through the mail. If anyone wants a postcard I will send postcards to the first 5 people that send me their address! 

Hope ya'll are having a very creative day!
