Illustration Tools + Resources

Every so often I am asked what tools I use to do what I do. I have a pretty simple set up, as my process is pretty analog. I hope this is helpful. I’d love to hear about your tools!

Art pens/markers: Micron (all sizes!), Faber Castell (big fan of the PITT Artist Pen, soft brush)

For writing and doodling: Pilot V5, Muji .5mm gel pen, Sharpies, crayons

Paintin’ things: India ink (I’m not particular about the type of brushes), LUKAS Gouache

Tablet: Samsung Galaxy Book and S Pen (as far as tablet drawing goes, I am a BIG FAN. I prefer this over an Ipad, even though I’m an Apple gal at heart). When I’m drawing and editing on my computer, I always use my Wacom Intuos tablet. 

Computer/software: Apple 27″ iMac, Adobe Creative Cloud (once you go CC, you won’t go back). I primarily use Photoshop and Illustrator, as well as InDesign and Lightroom.

Digital Brushes: Kyle T. Webster (Kyle Brush) Megapack, Shauna Parmesan Mega Mash Chalk Brushes, Brushbox (for organizing downloaded Photoshop brushes)
