Juan’s personal work is the result of his love for drawing, animation, and storytelling, where colorful and whimsical characters come to life. During this presentation you will learn how to create an Augmented Reality Risograph poster from scratch using Procreate and the online platform Artivive.

“Embracing your creative journey”
The journey is the reward not the destination. In this presentation I want to discuss how important it is for us to really walk this creative journey instead of idolizing the destination. My creative journey led me to where I am today and the journey has made this chapter in my life sweeter. Let’s reflect together and talk honestly about our journey, our WHY, and how we plan to push ourselves to grow daily.
