If you a) follow me on Instagram or b) get my weekly newsletter, you already know a secret: I’ve been working on changing my style.

The desire to incorporate my analog elements hit me earlier in the year so I’ve been quietly experimenting with techniques, trying to find what works best for the illustrations I want to make.

This change might seem sudden to you, but for me it’s been the work of several months, making messes and deciding what to bring forward into my new style.

It’s not a massive shift, but it feels and looks fresh to me. It’s an exciting time!

In this video, I’m sharing a quick and basic walk through of a process I’m using right now. You probably want an in depth tutorial or a full on class about using hand drawn and hand painted elements in digital. We will get there eventually. I promise.
