Learn to digitally draw with your iPad and your fingers
What most attracted Jaime Sanjuán about digital painting with Procreate was the possibility of experimenting with different pictorial techniques without the need to invest in materials or tools, working in a studio that is reduced to the screen of his iPad. Nowadays, the works that this artist does with a tablet and his fingers are exhibited in museums and galleries around the world, have given him the opportunity to work for large clients such as Apple, Pixelmator or Frit Ravich and has received international recognition.

Jaime Sanjuán is a designer, illustrator and digital painter. He studied Fine Arts at the University of Castilla-La Mancha (Spain), where he learned traditional art techniques such as oil painting, pastel, clay modeling, etc. although some years ago he decided to change the brushes and his studio for an iPad and the Procreate app, which give him the possibility to explore many techniques without the need of much space and using only his fingers.
Jaime has always been fascinated by realistic and hyper-realistic painting and this is the aesthetic he always seeks in his paintings and illustrations, which he usually loads with double meanings and impossible realities. This peculiar vision and a very refined technique acquired after years of experience have earned him international recognition as the Communication Arts Award, the American Illustration Award, or the Latin American Illustration Award, awards that have allowed him to see his work hung in galleries and museums of all the world.
