Well hello there!
It turns out I miss my blog and I thought I’d pick it up again. I miss the flexibility of being able to add different photos and mixing things up a little. I have such a hard time keeping the consistency with posting on social media (except for my Instagram). I really want to make my YouTube channel work, but I absolutely hate filming my creative process. It gives me an art block like you can’t imagine, so until I find a way to get over that I thought I’d give my blog another try. This is supposed to be fun right? Not filled with anguish and stress.
I will probably be posting similar content as on my Instagram account. It’s just that here I can customize things. Well, I don’t have to tell you this, you know how a blog works! It’s 2017 for crying out loud! 😂
Some of you might have noticed that I upgraded my iPad to the new iPad Pro and also the bigger size (12.9″). The idea was to make a video of me reviewing it but I keep procrastinating it because like I said, I hate the filming part. Sooo… I thought I’d make a blog post about it instead. Stayed tuned for this amaaazing upcoming review 😉
However…. I thought that since I’m supposed to be honest about everything it wouldn’t be fair not to show the face behind the words. So here I am… But don’t get use to selfies, that’s not my thing!
A short while after my accident, two years ago, I was pretty self-conscious about my scar. But now I kind of embrace it and think that it’s a part of me, of my history. It’s a constant reminder of the way I lived my life and the fact that I could have hurt my self a lot worse than this.
Yeah well… that’s me.
First, let me start by telling you this: I’ve always been very interested in both drawing and new technology. This has eventually turned out in me using my iPad for pretty much every creative thing I do.
For a couple of years I’ve been using the Wacom Cintiq to do all my drawings on. But this keeps you limited to your desk (if you don’t have the Companion) and also to your computer. When the iPad Pro launched I saw my chance to get the best of both worlds. I was kind of suspicious of the Apple Pencil, but man did it prove me wrong! It’s great!!
So to sum it up, I am having a better experience with the iPad Pro than the Wacom Cintiq.
Of course there are pros and cons with everything, including the iPad.
Unlimited possibilities is fantastic. You can create pretty much anything, whenever you want to. It can also be a freaking curse! It can make you go mental because you never feel satisfied.
Don’t get me started on the undos! This is Gods digital gift to mankind, I’m telling you.
Let’s be honest, the iPad is expensive! But for me there is no question wether or not it’s worth it. I am using it almost every waken hour. I got my moneys worth just after the first weekend.
Staring at a screen all the time is not good for you. Get out and move your ass so you don’t get sick!
And yes I sometimes do miss the creative process of messing around with different pens, papers and stationary things. But the pros outweigh the cons in my opinion.
