Bob Staake is a children book illustrator who draws pictures in the most amazing manner. He uses just a mouse and the very outdated Photoshop 3.0.

Check out this video demonstration of his drawing process:

All his illustrations are formed via combinations and subtractions of shapes and lines. It looks like a very tedious process to me! Yet at the same time, I marvel at his works because of their beautiful geometries and Staake’s solid understanding of shapes.

In the age of digital art, artists are prone to obsessively keep themselves updated on the latest design software development. Yet here’s one guy who can show that old technology does not equate to bad art. You just have to get your fundamentals right. Rock on dude!~
