9to5 Mac writes today about Bay Area illustrator and graphic designer Nina Khashchina, whose latest work, “100 Views of Silicon Valley,” features mini paintings of the area. While Khashchina’s finished work uses physical paints and brushes, she says that Apple’s iPads, iPhones, and Macs, are key tools in her creative process.

Khashchina starts her process with Procreate and Adobe Sketch with Apple Pencil on her iPad Pro, where she looks at different compositions and colour combinations. She says that this is a great time-saver.

Astropad is another of Khashchina’s preferred apps as it enables her to use her Apple Pencil and iPad with Photoshop on Mac.

Khashchina also uses her iPhone throughout her creative process, from the initial planning stage right through to digitally publishing her artwork after having first scanned it and prepared it using Adobe’s Creative Cloud suite on her Mac. She also captures and records each stage of the process with videos, photos, and time-lapses, which she shares on her Instagram.

Another app that Khashchina credits with helping her create her art is Noisli, a white-noise generator that enables her to concentrate when working in a noisy location.

Khashchina has featured several Apple buildings and locations in her “100 Views of Silicon Valley” series, including Apple Park’s Visitor Center.
