Welcome to A Modern Medium - Creating traditional style art digitally!

Welcome to A Modern Medium - Creating traditional style art digitally!
So I did a thing! I was tired of trying it cram myself into IG reels and videos, limited to the restrictions of YT, and who knows what is going on with TikTok right now 😂 Welcome to my new blog! A Modern Medium.
Here you will find typos, be able to ask me questions, follow along with my tips and tricks, and best of all I am introducing Flatlay Freebies! Once a month or so I will release a useable iPad Flatlay free of charge and free of any marketing or watermarks both here and over on my profile with Unsplash. One of the hardest things I remember when I first started out was coming up with a cohesive feed, aka pretty 😬 It can be a tad overwhelming for a new artists to get the hang of marketing, ambiance, creating the art, AND figuring out how to display it in a great way to gain followers+traction.


With my Flatlay’s all you need to do is download, pull them into your art program of choice (I use Procreate) and integrate your art onto the iPad screen! I will try to take blank shots, but most of them will be for the app Procreate. Sounds daunting? Don’t worry! I will have a tutorial coming soon.
For now arrivederci and don’t forget to subscribe to my mailing list on my homepage, I promise to never send you any Spam, that stuff is nasty.
Smell ya later,
