Drawing from Technology, Illustrating from Life


"Put your hand up, the people who can't draw ... I want to ask these people: Can you make an egg? Can you write your name? Before you could that, you could draw." 

If you know the vociferously talented illustrator Luis Mendo, you know just how many pages he fills daily with beautiful, lively drawings In a very special presentation from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 131, he shows off 20 drawings he made entirely on the iPad Pro, all with the Apple Pencil. As encouraging as ever, Luis shows us that everyone has the potential within themselves to draw — you just have to get out there and put pencil to paper (or iPad)!
