Printing With Uncle Rob


A short process video. Because I think some learn better visually.

I take you through the process of making a single print color and while it is the short version leaving out many smaller details, I think it’ll give you and idea of what goes into making a print. Remember, I have to do this process for each single color.

Video: Digital Illustration, Dutch Style


First of the month means First Watch and today we have a process video (recording of the artist working at twice the speed). As you may know I love process videos because you can learn from other artists, but my entire life people have been looking over my shoulder to see what I’m creating – we are all simply excited about the creative process!

Lois van Baarle is the Dutch artist behind the scenes and you can find her at

If you have a video suggestion for First Watch let me know!

It’s the 1st of the month. That means 1st Watch is back with some wicked illustration process reel.

My wife turned me on to Hydro 74 a while back and I really love his style. The self proclaimed purveyor of sin has made a name for himself as an illustrator of all things bad ass. If you like what you see you should check out his site:

Process videos are great for people like me to see how other illustrators do the deed, but I think you’ll like the inside look at what goes into this phenomenal art.

Every month I try to come up with cool videos so if you have any suggestions, let me know.
