How I wrote the book – Digital Collage with Procreate

I’ve been meaning to write a quick catch-up article since January, just after my new book launched. Squirrelled away in my attic for two years writing my new book Digital Collage with Procreate, it’s taken me a few months to catch up with everything that I’ve let slide in my life (oh – you know the little – but very important things, like getting new glasses, getting exercise, seeing friends and family, paying attention to the house repairs – this 200 old year house needs a lot of tlc)…and now it is May already! – so here it is…a brief summary of the book writing process.

Tools and Accessories for Creating Digital Art on the iPad

iPad Pro 11 inch   Review: The iPad Pro 11 inch is an essential tool in my creative arsenal. Its ample storage capacity (I have 512GB but 250GB should be ample for most needs) allows me to work on complex multi-layered projects in Procreate without worrying about running out of space.
