Luis Creations Soap vs. Intllab Magnetic Stirrer

Battle of the Ink Mixers

The moment you first experience the joy of having a little device mixing ink for you, you’ll never want to go back into a non-automatic ink stirring reality. I had seen people using Lab Stirrers quite a while ago, back when I was still mostly brush lettering and only dabbling in the world of Calligraphy. Back then I knew I couldn’t even justify spending $50 on a gadget that sure would use up quite a lot of space. But then my obsession happened.

Brush Lettering 2.0

digital handlettering with the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil

I would’ve never thought that I’d ever buy an iPad. I was sure of the fact that I would never (ever) be in love with an Apple product as much as I still adore my beloved iPod classic (which is still in use!). Well, my iPod is still my number one, but this Pad is definitelly getting there. I’ve only had it for 6 days… Combine the iPad Pro with Porcreate and the Apple Pencil and you got a lettering tool that feels like a real brush upgraded with an undo option.
