A talk about combining analogue and digital art, using the Procreate app, with Brooke Glaser.

Have you ever scanned your analog artwork, only to be disappointed because the textures and imperfections that made it special have disappeared or been smoothed out?

Have you tried to create textured backgrounds, like watercolours, with software? This is particularly true for hand lettering imported to vector apps, which tend to make everything look the same.

Brooke is an illustrator, surface designer, and art teacher. She tells us how particularly the Procreate app has changed the way she creates illustrations, and compares it to the “olden days“ using Photoshop.

Procreate is currently only available for the iPad, where it has become the most popular drawing application among professionals. It’s so affordable though at $10 currently that anyone who can afford an iPad can also afford the app. Photoshop costs more than that per month.

Brooke has several classes, currently on Skillshare. She has an excellent beginners introduction to Procreate, and a class showing how to combine analogue with digital art in Procreate.

Victoria Lee Connors travels the world creating landscapes made of wool fiber.

Victoria's landscapes look like paintings from a distance, but are all made from dyed wool. Looking at pictures on the internet we have to imagine the fibrous texture of wool.

Victoria creates these landscapes out in the open, en plein air. She attaches pieces of fiber to a canvas, resting on an easel, just as a landscape painter does.
