Hi there! I'm Deryago, otherwise known as Andrew "D" Francis. I have two degrees and over a decade of experience in the creative and technical fields. If it's related to IT or design, I've probably done it.But what I truly care about are creativity and collaboration. There's nothing better than working together towards a shared vision and growing together in the process... Except maybe writing stories and bringing characters to life. Oh, and fluffy things. Cute and fluffy stuff makes my world go around. Anyway, I hope my silly creations can connect with and inspire others.

HAVE THE COURAGE TO ENCOURAGE

While pursuing my second degree, I dedicated two years of my life to fostering commmunity and encouraging younger creatives. During that time, I taught workshops, hosted competitions and did everything in my power to empower others. A little bit of kindness can go a long way.

CREATIVE TECHNOLOGY
Advice & Recommendations


My career as an IT admin and overall tech enthusiast has helped me plenty while shopping for gear.
The only products I list here are what I personally use. If you're interested in my professional consultation services, feel free to contact me.

Don't fall into the trap of "future proofing" tech

There's no such thing. The newest and greatest is rarely much better than last year's model. Buy refurbished or second-hand where appropriate and use gear a year or two behind the trend.
~ Put those savings towards future proofing yourself, the environment, and the things that matter most to you.
By going for refurbished you are keeping tech out of the landfill. And seriously, donate your old devices to those in need or look for ways to recycle.

PS. Brand loyalty goes one way. Be open-minded

Surface Studio Laptop (2021)
The creative workhorse

Everything I want to do can be done on one device. 3D sculpting and modeling in Blender? Sure! I've rendered scenes on this, created animations and done plenty of tinkering in Unreal engine. It even doubles as a gaming laptop!The official dock turns it into a great desktop replacement. And the drawing experience is as good as my iPad Pro, but the pen is sold separately.

When I want to just sit back and doodle or animate, I always reach for my iPad. While my laptop is excellent, the iPad is a lot lighter and the Procreate software is a treat to use. Plenty of my ideas are sketched out while lounging in a recliner or laying in bed.You will need to buy the Apple Pencil if you plan on doing any of that though. The Magic Keyboard is pricy but it turns the iPad into a laptop equivalent. And lastly, the Sketchboard Pro gives much better drawing angles.
