Review: Affinity Designer for iPad

Affinity Designer for iPad is a full spec vector drawing app from Serif, based on their desktop app of the same name. The app promises to be fully optimised for mobile with the capability of supporting huge multi-artboard canvases and thousands of layers.

I love using my iPad Pro as part of my creative process but always found it lacking in any decent vector drawing software, so I was keen to try out Serif’s latest offering to see if it really did deliver.

Review: BenQ PD3200U Monitor

As HD/4K screens have become the norm for most tech users, working on a decent monitor has become an essential part of my design set up when creating on-screen graphics. I can’t be without one! Having previously used BenQ’s BL3201PT, I had high hopes for their PD3200U model which is from a newer line of monitors built specifically with designers in mind.

Top 5 Pens for Illustrating

I’m a big believer in the best pens being whatever you have to hand, as when you have an idea any pen will do! I’ve seen some amazing pieces created with some of the cheapest biros, so not having “the right pens” shouldn’t be an excuse (unless you’re attempting to paint a mural with nothing but an old potato).

That being said, I get a lot of people asking me which pens I use for my sketchbook and hand drawn work – so I thought I’d share some of my favourites in a blog post.
