I’ve been having a lot of fun playing with the iPad Pro lately and seeing how it can improve my workflow and make my creative life easier…

I’m quickly becoming addicted! Recently I drew some motifs on the iPad (above) and turned them into this pattern:

So fun! I was easily able to just open the motifs from the iPad right in Illustrator on my computer and make the pattern there. Why did I wait so long to try out this new technology?! Next I’m going to try out the Astropad app, which lets you mirror your computer screen right on your iPad. So you can use the full versions of Illustrator and Photoshop right on the iPad screen. Amazing. So much to explore!

Yes! August 17, my birthday, is the day when I’ll be offering up for sale all my original daily animal paintings that I’ve created so far. There are over 100 different animal paintings! More details to come, but for now, put this date on your calendar if you’ve had your eye on one (or more!) of these totem paintings. August 17 will be your day to scoop up your fave(s). There will be prints of each available, too!

The oracle card deck is in the works, too (I was just playing with the card design and layout yesterday!), but I thought this would be a fun way to celebrate my birthday this year and will be a cool stop along the way to the creation of the deck. :) The logistics of creating + publishing a deck are more complicated than I initially envisioned, and I want to do it right, so I’m trying not to rush it. It WILL happen; just not totally sure when yet.

More soon!
