Embracing the Journey

Tuesday, July 4, 2017

Hi Everyone,

Considering how much I love the interaction of ink on paper, I’m somewhat amazed to discover that digital design is fun, and allows me to create images that aren’t possible using traditional art supplies. Last year I got a new design tool– an iPad Pro, and I have enjoyed exploring.
