Podcast Illustration

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to create artwork for a podcast episode from one of my favorite travel author's Rolf Potts.

He wanted a simple illustration that reflected the title "Classic rock is not dead. Classic rock is undead. Long live classic rock."

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!
