This Intel Evo Evolution illustration was commissioned by Strata Creative Communications. It is the first of six illustrations that will be created live as part of 11 Pop-Up Road Show events. These pop-up events are to create awareness of the new Intel Evo chips and their superb capability. There will be 6 different illustrations that will follow as they happen. Half will be vector art and the half will be pixel art.
The illustration was created on a Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 powered by the Intel Evo i7 chip. It has a reversible 13,3” touch screen. I found it to be delightful to work on. In spite of only having 8GB of RAM, it’s super fast, smooth and never suffers performance lag. Even when dealing with large Photoshop files that would have a lesser machine chugging along, it just delivers. So much so that it was easy to forget I was creating on a computer. The pen strokes are so precise & immediate it seems the computer can almost predict your next move. The experience is creatively seamless.
As an artist I don’t want to be aware of the fact that I am using technology to make my art. It makes me feel as though this little powerhouse is an extension of my hand and my thoughts.
Isn’t that exactly what we creatives need?
