The Apple Pencil (opens in new tab) and iPad Pro (opens in new tab) have opened up a new range of creative opportunities for artists and designers. Thanks to its sensitivity the Apple Pencil can be used to create pixel perfect pictures, or in the hands of illustrator Jasper StAubyn West (opens in new tab), monstrous doodle art (opens in new tab).
Drawn every day during March as part of a monthly challenge, these humorous sketches give mundane pictures of daily life a quirky twist. Monsters in the subway, faces in food, even facehuggers in the fridge, Jasper's Instagram feed has got them all.
Sometimes subtle, sometimes sarcastic, these cartoony pictures channel Jasper's imagination and dry sense of humour. Part of their popularity might be that we all use our imagination to escape boring situations, and now we can see these thoughts brought to life.
Created alongside his other talents as an animator, motionographer, photographer and musician, these sketches also show how easy the Apple Pencil is to use. Add a few clever lines to some of your Instagram pictures and who knows, maybe you could build a following like Jasper.
It's a sign of Jasper's skills as an artist that he can inject imagination into even the most boring of pictures. To stay on top of his latest projects, plus his blog of scribble art, be sure to head over to his site: http://www.tailjar.com/ (opens in new tab).
