I’ve been obessed with seeing fellow artists using Procreate on the iPad pro this past year. To say I wanted to get my hands on one was an understatement. I began saving and preparing to upgrade my 5-year-old iPad mini, which proved harder than originally thought; especially when you have a toddler who grows at the speed of light. In January, we discovered the latest edition standard iPad was compatible with the first gen Apple Pencil, AND Procreate!

I’m hooked. I thought I’d use it for my hand-lettering, but fate intervened. My 2-year-old is obsessed with all things dinosaurs and zoo animals, which became an inspiration for quick doodles to get a good laugh out of her. I reignited an old flame of my past self, and I’ve been ‘doodling’ every chance I get.
