Artwork done in Procreate using Apple Pencil and an iPad Pro.
Inspired by Gal Shir and Mads Berg.
Series is a work in progress.
Awhile back, as we were considering a refresh of our office decor, an idea struck me: create a series of handmade posters illustrating our various digital marketing services—web design, web development, email marketing, social media, and SEO. So I got to work.
Then I got really freaking busy. But hey, I finished—"finished"—two of the posters before the swamp drowned me.
As you can probably see, I had two primary sources of inspiration for the style I was going for. The first was Gal Shir, whose iPad sketching videos are nothing short of awe-inspiring. I utilized his Procreate brushes and his approach to texturing and shading, quite extensively.
My second source of inspiration was Mads Berg, whose contemporary art deco style is probably my favorite illustrative aesthetic on earth. I figured if I could achieve even a quarter of the quality and polish Mads produces, I could come up with decently cool designs.
