Whenever I get a question from a user asking me “how did you draw this?”, I often have to answer that I’ve used the Pen tool. The Pen tool is probably the hardest tool to learn in Illustrator.

So I left Austin and arrived in New York safely for the last days of our US trip. It has been a little weird compared to previous years because the weather wasn’t that great in Austin. Most of the days had wind, some rain and Cindy even saw a tornado!

You may have noticed already but I am taking a break at the moment. Today we just arrived in Austin, Texas for SXSWi. The previous days I got the opportunity to spend some quality time with my best friend Cindy in San Francisco.
