Ex-designer turned full time artist Note Kritsada Phakawatsuntorn had spent the last several years trying to perfect pencil and charcoal drawing by hand. But had come full circle by making it irrelevant of what medium he used, but for people to focus on the art itself.

Having worked in fashion and the creative industry for decades, his daily workflow was centered around computers and their illustration applications.  Although he found it to be useful as a tool, he thought they lack the charm and feeling of drawing on real paper or canvases.  However a few months back he got himself an iPad pro.  He wondered whether he could do the same thing he did on paper, but digitally.  For him, it almost like things are coming full circle (see last image below which was done entirely in the digital domain.) where he thinks his viewers should focus on the art, not the medium.
