There’s nothing better than drawing for hours when inspiration strikes. However, when you’re one or two hours in and that blister starts forming on your middle finger, you better wrap things up and take a break.
If you’re an iPad artist, you can probably relate with the issue. Fortunately, I’ve found a stylish solution - PenSleeve by Optishield x Freya.art!
This minimalist protective sleeve will make the grip heavenly soft, allowing you to draw for hours with no pain or discomfort.
The PenSleeve hugs your Apple Pencil and prevents sliding, which provides you with a better grip. Besides being more comfortable than the “naked” Apple Pencil, it also allows for more precision.
Pick among three available colours - graphite grey, sky blue, rosy pink - and style your Pencil in a gorgeous minimalistic two-tone outfit.
As it covers most of your Apple Pencil, PenSleeve protects it against dust, dirt, accidental drops and even your fidgety nibbling.
It won’t work wonders if it gets into the wrong hands (or paws), but you can rest assured it can withstand your moments of clumsiness and an occasional free fall from your table.
The PenSleeve doesn’t get in the way of the magnetic charging, so you don’t need to take it off your Apple Pencil every time you place it on your iPad to charge. It will attach and charge just as it did before.
The double tap feature works flawlessly as well, so you’ll have no problems switching between the drawing and erasing function of your Apple Pencil.
*The magnetic charging may be affected if you use a cover/case on your iPad.
Illustrator and Procreate lecturer
My name is Freya Kotchakorn and I’ve been a professional digital artist for over 15 years. Working with some of the leading brands in their respective fields has gained me quite some know-how that I don’t mind sharing.
In fact, I’ve become so proficient at it, that I’m now teaching hundreds of other aspiring artists such as yourself and presenting at iPad drawing events in Apple stores.
Since a lot of my students find the Procreate basics mini-course super helpful, they also enroll in my Masterclass to take their digital art to the pro level.
Many of them have even come so far as to start working with popular clients as freelancers or employees.
Once you opt for my free Basics course, you'll receive the two special bonuses below completely FREE of charge:
Take some time off and let your imagination run wild. Unwind with mindless coloring or use it to create your own art piece. The only rule: there are no rules!
