I drew a cat 🙂
It’s, of course, started with a simple sketch on reMarkable:
But then I spent way too much time painting all the flowers. I was thinking it would look good on greeting cards and t-shirts. I added it in my TRUFFLEPIG store.
I bought a reMarkable 2 tablet in January 2021, and I’ve been using it every day since then. It’s one of the most useful devices I own. I use it more than I use my phone. It’s always next to me when I work, and I often take it with me wherever I go. But no device is perfect. Here are my notes after 4 months of using reMarkable 2.
The pen is not included with the tablet by default. When you are buying a tablet, you should select a marker too, unless you plan to use the tablet for reading only. There are two marker options: gray, and black. The main difference between the two is that the black one has a built-in eraser.
Optionally, you can buy a folio.
There’s a 30-day guarantee — you can buy and test reMarkable 2 for 30 days and if you don’t like, return it. But be prepared that you will want to keep it.

Here’s the sketch that I made first:
Then I inverted the colors because I like while designs on black t-shirts more than white t-shirts with black designs. I took part of the design and places in on apparel:
But I put the whole patterns on home decor items, like: rugs, tapestries, blankets, and some accessories:
I titled it “Black Sands” because it was inspired by this photo I took in Iceland:
Guys, reMarkable 2, which is amazing and I use it ALL THE TIME is now $40 off. Here is a link.
If you are unsure whether you want it, you can order it, test it, and return it for free within 30 days. But be prepared that you will fall in love with your reMarkable 2 and will not want to return it. Ever.
I was sketching on my reMarkable while watching YouTube and I drew very simple leaves and then turned them into a design for apparel.
A few days ago I shared my Forest Person design:
This is a black design on a grey background. But not everyone likes wearing light t-shirts. So I always try to invert colors and upload the design again, this time as a white design on a black background. However, when I inverted the colors, the design didn’t look so good:
It sort of looks like a white blob. I decided to paint the design again so it would look better on darker colors. Here’s the new version:
This design was made with reMarkable 2, which I love.
I think reMarkable 2 is one of the most useful things I bought. I always keep it next to my keyboard and whenever I take a break from work, I start sketching in it. Sometimes all I manage to create are some silly drawings but every now and then I make something good and can send it to my Artist Shop on Threadless.
Here’s a drawing I made two days ago:
I moved all my to-do lists there. All notes on reMarkable are organized into notebooks so I now have a notebook just for my to-do lists. I created separate notebooks for all my projects that I am working on. One more notebook with weird ideas that might turn into projects one day.
I keep it nearby all the time, open on my to-do list for the day. No longer do I have to shuffle paper notepads and loose pages that somehow always accumulated on my desk.
But it’s not useful for notes and lists only. I also sketch in it a lot. I have a notebook for my sketches and another notebook for sketches for my next apparel store. When I have a completed drawing I simply export it to a PNG file. I still have to remove the background in Photoshop but it’s way faster than sketching on paper and then taking a photo and cleaning it up.
Here’s another sketch that I made yesterday:
