My Tablet & Me – Illustrators experiment with digital tablets

Over the last few weeks, Inkygoodness has published a series of interviews focusing on tablets as an innovative creative tool for illustrators.

The project culminated in a mini documentary, shot on location in West Sussex, Nottingham and Leeds and directed by production company Dimension 2 – and we’re excited to finally share it with you!

Featuring the talents of illustrator Andrew Groves, graphic designer Alex Fowkes and comic artist and illustrator Kristyna Baczynski who each discuss their individual approach to image-making and how they use their tablets to enhance their work-flow, the video encapsulates the freelance lifestyle and the challenges faced by today’s creatives.

‘My Tablet and Me’ – in association with UK retailer Argos.

Andrew Groves – Illustrator & Craft Maker

I used the tablet for jotting down ideas like a digital sketchbook – creating unique colour palettes, shapes and patterns that I can develop in vector.

As a designer who travels a lot, the Samsung tablet really helped me organise meetings and stay on top of my e-mails on the move.

Kristyna Baczynski | Comic Artist and Illustrator

I like keeping a catalogue of reference material, so the iPad was handy for taking visual records of colour references and ideas whilst I was out and about.

We’d like to thank Colours May Vary in Leeds for allowing us to shoot on site, each of our illustrators: Kristyna Baczynski, Andrew Groves and Alex Fowkes for supporting the project and of course Dimension 2 for their direction and production.
