I began using Omnigraffle in a UX role for wireframing. After getting comfortable with it, I started to see the potential and decided to give illustrating a go. I did try to learn Adobe illustrator every now and then, but I kept going back to ‘Graffle.
The biggest takeaway so far for me has been –
Tools are great but imagination is much more important.
Basically, if you can’t see it, you can’t get there.
In the mean time while experimenting, I decided to illustrate a whole book with several characters in Omnigraffle. It’s been fun, and I will write a tutorial soon.
