I was recently asked by my half-sister if I'd be interested in making some quick, loose, sketchy drawings for a potty training book she was making for her oldest daughter, my niece, Lily. I'm always up for a challenge, so I said I'd give it a shot. And happily the whole thing turned out really nicely. So I thought I'd share. A word about technique: I made all the drawings on my iPad using a Wacom stylus and an app called Procreate. Working on the iPad allowed me to make the drawing very quickly and forego digitizing, as well as take all sorts of creative liberties. I can't recommend Procreate highly enough. It's easily one of my favorite apps of all time, very versatile, fun and expressive and full of all sorts of great functionality. I'll probably do a post on it at some point, but for now I just want to share the work. So here it is.
