Have any of you noticed a change in the target demographics for these bright & colorful illustrations? It seems they were primarily used in products for children in the past.
Heather Olson
45:09
Related to Rosie’s question, how are you adjusting imagery to reflect the diversity of consumers and represent all identities that clients want to attract?
Mikayla Linn

Any favorite or Procreate brushes that you find yourself using most? This work is beautiful!
Larry Riordan-Fulcher

Any tips for learning the ins and outs of procreate?
Johna Reuvers
52:14
This is a great resource that I’ve used to learn the basics of Procreate and also a really good source for art brushes: https://bardotbrush.com

I love to watch other artists work in procreate on instagram. I learn a lot of tricks and tips that way. Even following #procreate or procreate’s account itself are ways to learn from others.
Meridith Graham
58:35
Will the recording be available for us to rewatch?
Carla Januska - AIGA MN
58:59
Yes, it will be posted to the event page on aigaminnesota.org.
JoEllen Martinson Davis

Of course “just do it” is the other way in, I think experimenting with brushes and their capabilities or trying to mimic another style you love is a real hands on way to learn. I am still learning a ton. It’s endless, in a wonderful way!
Meridith Graham

Tiffany Szerpicki
01:12:08
Has anyone at Ultra tried using Adobe Fresco vs Procreate? Does anyone do 3D models for illustrations?
Heather Olson
01:12:17
As an illustrator, do you feel like your own personality emerges through the characters you creative?
JoEllen Martinson Davis

Thanks @HeatherOlson. It’s really an important and evolving conversation.
