Not sure if I’m sharing in the right spot, but…

I’ve been frustrated at using Illustrator on my Mac (too much horsepower for my addled brain) and I’m delighted to have discovered:

Affinity Designer is a lot like Macromedia Freehand used to be. And it’s only $50.

I still tend to export the SVG and pull it in to Inkscape for my final layout if I’m using layers to separate print jobs, because I can’t quite get my head around the AD concept of “layers.” :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: I guess I should go watch some more tutorials on that… sigh


I used to do that too, but now I’m 99% AD only!

Thanks. I had not. Gave me a big laugh. So wait…there are no Kewpies in Kewpie Mayo OR on the cover of Seth’s book although he went to Japan to buy them. They’re faux Kewpie simulacrums. Another topic off course.
