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.
Look for the project progress on

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.

It's finally here!!!
The latest update to @SketchableApp in the @MicrosoftStore includes my awesome art piece:
This is a mix between Aztec, Art, Creativity, CyberFunk, Space, SciFi and of course, The Art Life!
Ever since I started drawing with Sketchable in my Surface Pro, I wanted my art to get a feature in the app along with the art pieces that were in the In-App journal along with @SeegMiller_Art @LawrenceCanDraw
2020 is when I finally got the chance to create something special for Silicon Benders, the developers of Skechable App. Brothers Miles and Ryan Harris have been super to work with ever since I met them in 2016 at our Microsoft Art Battle in Downtown ATL.
See you around the internets!

An Android App featuring the best Microsoft has to offer on mobile.
Two days to create a user journey, wireframes, design and an explainer video on the app we created.
Oh yeah, the team just met early that day.
What. These are the details that were handed to us. No other info provided.
Who. Establish a User Journey to find the elements that users find necessary in working from mobile.
Why. The rough wireframes that guide a user through the app to find productive tools and get things done.
How. Adobe Illustrator is my go to program, especially for illustration but in this case, once you design in Illustrator, the files are readable by Adobe XD to add the finishing touches on how the app behaves.
All the screens needed for the demo.
I created these images for the video in Adobe Photoshop, then created the video in Adobe Premiere with voice over work by @DeltaTangoMike
We present to you, Microsoft Companion, the one app you need, the one app to have.

I was happy to hear that I had been selected as a Microsoft Insider for my work with the community.
I entered the Insiders In Action: Giving Back Contest with a focus on my work in the arts community and my firm belief that technology is closing the gap for many artists to reach their audience.
Not only is tech good for marketing, but it's also good for organizing a business and keeping track of our projects and clients.
