The Setup

Inspired by Shawn Blanc's series where he asks various interesting people what hardware/software/furniture they use, I thought I would add something similar to mine...

UPDATE: Shawn actually featured me on his site! 


2014 Retina 5K iMac 4.4Ghz, with 32Gb RAM and 1Tb SSD - the main workhorse used with;

Wacom Cintiq 27QHD - a digital drawing board and best thing I've ever bought...

2013 2.6Ghz Mac Mini with 16Gb RAM and 1Tb Fusion Drive  and 10TB of external Hard Drives - backup system and media server

128Gb iPad Pro - for sketches and everything outside the house

Apple Pencil

64Gb iPhone 6S Plus - my camera

Canon 650D with 50mm 1.8 lens - my other camera


Adobe Photoshop CC - I love what I can do with this software but I really wish Adobe had some more competition - if there was a competitor with a better UI/performance, I'd consider switching

Evernote - to keep everything and anything and have some hope of finding it later

Dropbox - I have a 2Tb account and store all my work on it, it also keeps the two Mac's in perfect sync and adds a file system to the iPad

Procreate - a very fully featured painting app for the iPad
