Each painting in this book was created in a variety of ways. First I chose an app on my iPad I wanted to paint with. I limited myself to Procreate, Brushes Redux, Sketchbook Pro, and ArtRage. The amount of time I had available usually dictated what app I used.
The Brushes paintings were generally done from home so I could refine them. I scouted locations and took photo reference in New Haven or New York. These pieces are the most polished in the entire book. Procreate is my all purpose app so I can utilize many different styles. The gesture drawing classes I had at The School of Visual Arts informed a lot of my painting decisions. Basically I was capturing a feeling instead of a 100% accurate depiction.
ArtRage is painterly so I drew on my oil painting background for the compositions. Finally with Sketchbook Pro I tapped into my cartooning roots and created sketchy, comic book inspired illustrations.
