For my digital artwork, my program of preference is Macromedia Freehand (Freehand is a drawing program, similar to Adobe Illustrator). To create a design like those you see below, I’ll typically make a sketch in pencil, scan it, and then re-draw it in Macromedia Freehand. I’ll then add text, effects, and color.
