I’ve been experimenting with digital art since 1985. My first completed project was “The Mirror,” which is widely recognized as the VERY FIRST children’s book illustrated in color on a computer. The book was published by Harbinger House in 1987. The illustrations were created using an application named “PixelPaint,” long before the arrival of Adobe Photoshop. I used a mouse and a trackball as my drawing tools.
Since then, I have done many more digital works, eventually moving up to a Wacom tablet and then an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, which are my main tools today.
