Procreate Play & Learn (The First Month)

Posted on Dec 10, 2018

After years of waiting for it, I finally got an iPadPro2 when it was released last month and have been playing with Procreate.

I definitely enjoy the program and am becoming more comfortable with using it.

I don’t feel like I can do quite what I can in Photoshop on my laptop, but actually, I think that’s a good thing as it is prompting different approaches & results.

Also not sure quite how it’ll fit into my workflow just yet. I’d love to hear how others here switch between Procreate & Photoshop. What determines the work you do via each platform? Do you start on one and finish on another? etc. Feel free to send an email or share on one of my social media accounts: http://quietyell.com/contact/

So far, I think the included brushes are more than adequate (I use the HB Pencil & Acrylic Brushes the most so far); however, I do find some of the brushes by Max Ulichney to be quite useful (particularly some of the Comics ones for line work). Put links to his sites here:

Thought I’d share here what I’ve been playing with on Procreate in my very limited free time this past month.

I am excited to finally be able to share this work! Below is the press release with the PR image followed by a thumbnail grouping of the images I did for the menu and activity sheet that has been made public thus far.

Mimi’s Promotes Healthier Choices With Engaging New Kids Menu

Flipbook-style menu lets kids select dishes while creating stories with furry French friends

DALLAS, Feb. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Mimi’s has launched a creative new kids menu that features healthy choices and an entertaining experience to make ordering fun for even the youngest diners.

The flipbook-style menu is a charming storybook starring Elle and Pierre, a cat-and-dog best-friend duo traveling through France together. The pair help kids select a main dish, side and drink, with each turn of the menu’s three-part pages creating a new scene in the French countryside or city, as Elle and Pierre enjoy picnics, riding trains, dancing – even parachuting.

“We wanted to create a new way for kids to engage with the dining experience and empower them to make their own choices,” said Mimi’s Senior Director of Marketing Tiffany McClain. “Our new kids menu is a fun and interactive way to help children review the menu. They can find the items they like and give their order to the server independently and even nonverbally.”

The menu features new items such as French Toast Dippers, freshly baked Kids Waffle, Kids Cheeseburger or Cheese Quesadillas, as well as longtime favorites Puppy Dog Griddle Cakes, Sliced Grilled Chicken Breast, crispy Chicken Tenders, and Kids Fettuccini with Pomodoro Sauce.

Along with their main dish, kids can also select new beverages with their meal, like Honest Kids Appley Ever After or Super Fruit Punch. Last, they can add healthier items to their meals, such as GoGo squeeZ Applesauce and Yoplait Go-Gurt Strawberry Yogurt, for $0.99 each.

“GoGo squeeZ is thrilled to partner with a fun and exciting brand such as Mimi’s. Our mission at GoGo squeeZ is to make it easier for families to be healthier and happier. We hope kids will be excited about this addition to the Mimi’s kids menu,” said GoGo squeeZ Chief Marketing Officer Helene Caillate.

The entire kids menu is available all day, for kids 12 years and younger. Mimi’s also offers all-day breakfast, every day. For a full menu, locations and hours of operation, go to www.mimiscafe.com/kids.

Painting Andy Estra’s Cat-Butt-Face Sketch

Posted on Feb 19, 2018

Original Sketch by @Andy_Estra (Instagram) : I always admire and am inspired by his work (Thanks, Andy!). This particular sketch amused me so much that I just had to do some painting practice on it! …Of course, there are many other sketches of his I want to paint (and wish I had sketched!). Hopefully, in painting this, I learned something from his work to improve my sketching (and hopefully I did right by your great work, Andy!)

Original Sketch Text:
“Don’t know why my cat always puts her ass in my face. Hope you all have a great weekend”
