I love my paper napkins (and food!).
I’ve found more inspiration while I’m eating for many of my projects and a paper napkin has saved me countless times when I’ve needed to diagram or sketch something out.
Perhaps I should upgrade to the iPad now that I own one?
I wasn’t sure which one to get until I saw Jared rock this design literally right in front of me:
A little while later Jared did one for the 8BIT Network‘s logo:
Jared was using SketchBook Pro by Autodesk and was handling it like a champ. It’s a few bucks, sure, but you can obviously do some pretty fantastic things with it – Jared’s designs above didn’t even scratch the surface (but still looked awesome)!
