This year, my New Year’s resolution is to learn Procreate (an iPad drawing app) in order to master handlettering and illustration techniques. This, of course, is all about adding new design elements to the books. I’ve wanted to do it for years, but this year, I’m actually taking the steps.
Inspired by Carrie Jones’s Be Brave Friday, I’m going to post my progress this year. So far, the steps have been small. But I’ve learned a ton.
The thing is, I don’t have much to say about it–yet. But that’s true of any beginning. All you can say is that you have an idea and you’re committed to it. That, and I love drawing at the end of the day. It’s good for the ol’ soul.
For now, here’s my first completed project. You can find it on Every Tuesday, which has great Procreate tutorials:
