I’ve made up my mind. I’m going to buy an iPad and install Procreate on it and use an Apple Pencil to draw some little doodle comics. I’m not planning to replace my natural media cartooning– I bleed wet ink and that’s all there is to it– but I am ready to learn something new, here on the trailing edge of technology. At this time in my life, I want to become as technically adept as a middle schooler, yay me. Any advice is more than welcome,
Plus, of course, I have an idea for a new take on my cartoon world, and this one demands digital art and a web presence. You will see it here as soon as it starts to happen.
But I have to get there first and right now the whole prospect is at a really scary point. I am scared of picking out the wrong hardware, about getting it up and running, and about learning to draw all over again for what, the third or fourth time? Augh. Pure terror. But I know it is good for me, and I am going to persist. And still, she persisted. With an iPad. Augh.
The illustration is the only drawing I have ever made (so far) specifically about scary apples.
