BL: My name is Beaux LaFontaine and I am a Visual Communications 3rd year. My passion is in illustration, story and world building, and character design. I started my art journey with my still favorite Micron pens, and now I work mostly in Procreate on the iPad.
Kärlek: Love it! :-) So, which mediums did you use and what made you choose them?
BL: I used Micron pens sizes 003, 005, 1, and 3. It’s my favorite traditional medium and the one I’m most experienced with.
Kärlek: What did you enjoy most about using a Kärlek backpack as your canvas?
BL: I really enjoyed how nice the markers felt on the bag, smooth like butter. There was minimal bleed, and I didn’t have to go back over any lines.
Kärlek: Do you have any tips or thoughts to share about your experience?
BL: Definitely make sure you have space, it’s hard to draw on the bag of all you have is a tiny desk. Also, for the flap, lay it out on a table and put the rest of the bag behind it so you have a super flat surface to draw on. I would definitely do this again, possibly with Posca paint markers and do something super colorful!
