I am making a transition to digital art because my partner and I decided we wanted to travel the world together.

I tried traveling with my art supplies but it did not work well.

We have been traveling for almost three years now and I had no choice but to learn digital art. I started learning the digital medium a few months ago. I am currently using a tablet to create all of my art.

It was a frustrating transition for me but I feel like I finally got the hang of it.
