Essential Technology + Equipment

 Adobe Illustrator

For the Immersion Course, you'll need the full version of Illustrator (not the iPad app). 

GET ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR

Sketchbooks

Any paper or sketchbook will do! Just make sure it's smooth and free from lines or dots.

Plain Moleskin journal

PENS + Pencils

Anything will do! I prefer a smooth dark ink like these Uni Pens and my favorite Blackwing pencils.

UNI PEN FINELINER

TRACING PAPER

if you don’t have a digital drawing tool, you can replicate the same process by using a lightbox or tracing paper. 

Artist's Tracing Paper

The iPad Pro

Since the iPad Pro + Apple Pencil hit the market, illustrators, hand-letterers, and artists all over have been falling in love with it. The iPad is portable and can be taken anywhere.

Drawing Tablet

A Wacom Tablet is a tool that can aid your drawing right within Illustrator. The stylus gives you more control than drawing with a mouse. It must be connected to your computer.

WACOM INTUOS PRO

Scanner

A scanner provides the best and most accurate way to get your sketches or paintings into the computer to work from. Most any scanner will work, here's the one I use.

Canon Scanner

Lightbox

If you don’t have a drawing tablet, you can replicate the same process using a lightbox or tracing paper. *Hint: you can also tape two pieces of paper up to a window!

Artograph Lightbox
