I had a pencil case which held all sorts of pens, pencils, colored markers and everything else that I needed to sketch on paper. Whenever I needed to put in extra hours at home, I would have to pack a paraphernalia of tracing rolls, drafting dots, instruments and in a few instances, my bulky T-square and of course my magic pencil case.

By the time I set up all my “magical” tools at home, there was barely any time left to do the work unless I was up for an all-nighter!

I amazed myself when I remember those times.

Then in 2009, I made my first investment on a digital drawing table. The transition from paper to drawing on a tablet was slow and disorienting. But it really got me hooked on it as I could draw to my heart’s content without having the need to use paper and the physical mess. Coloring my sketches was another dimension that I enjoyed doing because it was instantly gratifying and more forgiving. And after a doodle marathon, my hands are still clean - no wardrobe casualty!

Today, almost all of my design work is done digitally - almost paperless. I enjoy the rapid ease of sketching something really quickly. It’s flexible, more forgiving and it lets me try a myriad of ways to come to a design solution, capturing the flow of creative thought.
