Birthday gifts are always fun and sometimes the most surprising gifts keep on giving. My birthday was in July and The Englishman surprised me with an IPadPro and Apple Pencil. I was blown away as I had no idea he was even considering such a gift (for the record his gift giving is always amazing, past gifts include a Cambridge Satchel and Ernest Wright and Sons scissors to name but a few).
The IpadPro is different to the regular iPad in that the screen is pressure sensitive. So when you draw using the pencil it feels like actual drawing. I use a wacom tablet for Illustrator work and have tried many other types of digital drawing products but none of them ever felt right. This exceeded all my expectations.
In order to practice and play I did a 30 day drawing challenge on Instagram. A new drawing each day. Sometimes focusing on line work, sometimes volume and other times movement or fabric quality.
These are the results of my 30 days challenge (in no particular order).
