100 Pencils Project:
100 Pencils Coloring Book
and Pens, Markers, Brushes, and more! 
The 100 Pencils Project is one of the first Adobe Creative Residency Community Fund projects of 2020. 

I, Dan Flores aka DTM, am super excited to be a 2020 Recipient and I present to you the 100 Pencils Coloring Book! 

The 100 Pencils Project is a love letter to all the all art materials artists come across when exploring their creativity. From the first crayon and Number 2 pencil to the fancy quill pens and expensive markers, Artists from all disciplines will recognize the art elements featured in this project. 

I will draw and create the coloring book and related images in Adobe Illustrator for iPad. I will stream on Behance and share my step by step process, from sketches to final page artboards. I will also share screenshots on my Social Channels along with keeping a journal here on this Behance Post. 

The resulting products include a coloring book, posters and plenty of free digital goodies available to download here on this Behance Portfolio.

The Research. 
I own a ton of markers, pencils, brushes and pens. It was my thought process that I should use my own materials as a source for the art that I will create. Yes it is easier to just find images online but there's no guarantee that I will find the exact marker/pencil I am looking for and it may just be easier to spend a few hours taking photos of my own elements! 

I used my desk with a large Bristol sheet and my Canon T3i to take the pictures. I created an Action in Adobe Photoshop so I could scale down and clean the lighting a bit on the 194 photos I took! 

Some images are repeated, I rather have too many photos than not enough. 
Brainstorming the layout. Digital drawing in Sketchable App. 
Testing Adobe Illustrator on iPad. Vector Paths, Anchor Points, Layers Gradients, Shapes and Handles. Yes!
