Illustrated Book With Procreate?
Why Procreate is the best professional tool? Today I'm sharing a bit about one of my last illustrated books. "The World Wild Handbook: Creatures" written by Andrea Debbink and behind the process.
Believe it or not, I still get asked a lot. Like a lot. If you can illustrate a full book using only Procreate? My answer is always yes, and no matter what some still do not believe those are Procreate illustrations from the very first draft to the super high detailed finished ready-to-print version.
This edition of The Creative Draft is going to be a short one and focused on this amazing new book of the series, and some free goodies. Also, I’m just finished filming the online class. More on that really really soon.

The Wild World Handbook: Creatures
100% Procreate made. My new illustrated book is out, so is my latest video!
Last week another one of my illustrated books was released. The Wild World Handbook: Creatures is the second book of a series I illustrated and was entirely made in Procreate for iPad. Every single stroke. So I made a video about it, where I show you some parts of my process, some early sketches, the brushes, and some techniques that I use.
Since I started my career I used my iPad and only Procreate, daily to create amazing artwork, everything you see on my socials, in my portfolio, and every piece I made for my clients.
This book is the second one of the series I illustrated early this year, the first one was titled “Habitats”, and both were written by Andrea Debbink and published by Quirkbooks. If you like this kind of video or if there’s anything in particular, you want to see for my next video about the upcoming illustrated books I made, leave it in the video comment section.

Taking Some Time to Relax
Last two weeks I traveled back to Lisbon and Madrid for work & to relax!
For work reasons these past two weeks, I visited two of my favorite cities. And one of the things I like to do when I travel is to go to my favorite cafes, places I like, healthy and tasty restaurants, and my fave museums and art stores. And I want to share those spots in the city with you guys in case you are interested.
To share them I’m using this app, called paak.io (full disclosure, it’s my husband's startup). In my profile, you can discover all the places I love and recommend. From hotels that are pet friendly (because when we have Lupe traveling with us it’s so important) to events, tickets to museums, restaurants, cafes, and cool bars.
Also, anyone can create an account totally for free and start sharing recommendations with your communities. What’s important is that every time someone books from those links, you as the curator of those recs earn a small commission, at no cost to whoever is booking. So for example, if you like one of the Amsterdam hotels I recommend, and you book through my link, I get a small commission at no cost to you. Super interesting for content creators or if you love to travel!
Eight of My Favorite Brushes FREE
I created this brush set exclusively for you guys! Let me know what you think!
If you are like me, and you like to have your own favorite brushes together in one place, you’ll definitely love this set of Procreate brushes I prepared for you. Normally one of the most asked questions is about my brush sets, how they work if I can do a video about them so I did one, or share a few for free for you to try out. So I did that as well :) I definitely heard you guys!
