At Automattic, we have an online design magazine at It’s something that our Head of Design, John Maeda created and it has become a joint effort across all the designers and design lovers I work with.

Every Thursday we publish a new issue, which involves 2-3 articles from design leaders and a brand new homepage created by an Automattic designer. This week, it was my turn! I used the Paper app on the iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil to illustrate the cover. It was really fun and actually made me want to get back to my ink and watercolors doodles. cover:

  1. Love it!

    Is that flash/action script in the programming illustration? Haha 🙂

    1. Thanks!

      Haha, yes that is flash’s timeline ui.

      The original title I was working with was along the lines of: How I went from a Flash developer to working with Javascript and HTML5.
