designer’s toolbox

When I began thinking about sharing a list of resources I use as a designer/illustrator I thought it’d be short and sweet. But then, when I wrote it all down, the list was longer than anticipated. Which I suppose is the goal of a streamlined workflow in the first place; seamless integration of traditional and digital arts media. I’ll keep this space updated as I find new helpful tools and resources. ♡
