My artwork, whether it’s writing, drawing, or design, either starts out on a device or will eventually end up on one. Here is a list of hardware and software tools I use in my day-to-day work.
- Squarespace for creating websites
- Adobe Creative Suite for design
- Coda for Visual Studio Code writing code for websites
- Scrivener for writing children's books
- Evernote, OmniFocus, OmniOutliner, and DEVONThink for capturing and organizing tasks and information
I’m always evaluating new apps to see if I can increase my productivity or enhance my workflow. Hence the long list of apps I use for capturing tasks and storing information.
As an artist, it's near impossible to get away from writing, sketching, and creating finalized art on paper. Below is an assortment of art supplies I use on a day-to-day basis.
Lines & Colors
- Copic Markers and Pens
- Koi Water Colors Pocket Field Sketch Box by Sakura
- Prismacolor Colored Pencils
- Prismacolor Premier Art Pens
- STAEDTLER® Mars® technico 780 C lead holders
Ever since I started using an iPad Pro in late 2016 I’ve cut back on my use of traditional media. As a result, I’ve stopped buying new traditional supplies and completely rely on creating my artwork digitally. I’m not sure if this has made me a better artist, but I do like the convenience an iPad Pro affords me with drawing tools in various apps.
I use a variety of web services and applications to publish and share my products, artwork, and writing. Here is a list of the web services and apps I use to share my writing, art, and design online. I also snuck in some financial services and apps I use to run my business.

- Squarespace for building and managing this website, which I wrote a couple books about.
