Check out my latest design video on YouTube: Lettering on a Surface Pro.

Life is full of Whisks

Life is full of WHISKS!

And risks!

This is my first ever creation I designed on an iPad*. I don’t actually ‘own’ an iPad*. My 9 year old son, however, was gifted the newest non-pro version of the iPad* for his birthday last year and for Christmas I was gifted an Apple Pencil*.

This makes more sense than it might seem. I generally end up waiting almost half an hour at his school to pick him up since I have another pick up that makes the drive home not very practical- 15 minutes home, 15 minutes back, I can basically drive home and check the mail, then get into the dreaded pick-up line.  So I never come home between. Instead I sit in the car and squeeze in some creative time.

I’ve been packing up his iPad* in my tablet bag*, so I bring along my Surface Pro*, Surface Pen*, his iPad* and a host of accessories for both. Once I pick him up, though, I have no more need for having my Surface* with me, so it gets packed up and he pulls out his iPad*. Now with the Apple Pencil*, I can draw on his iPad*, then when he is out of school I can just pass it over and he can play on it while I go back to driving!

The iPad* and  Apple Pencil* are a more affordable option for creating on the go. I feel less worried and anxious carrying the two of them around than I do Circuit Breaker (that’s my Surface’s name).

I hope ya’ll like this design. It’s really exciting to be creating in yet another new way.
