Em- I’m not seeing much about him modifying an Apple Pencil- I think maybe it’s just that he’s created a custom brush shape within the app?
Regardless.
I do like hand lettering.

As @nothingfuture says, he’s making custom brushes in Procreate that’re tweaked for calligraphy strokes. He isn’t modifying the actual Apple Pencil.

That’s really nice work.

I think I’m going to have to pick up an iPad Pro this fall. I’ve played with the pencil a little bit and it feels very, very good. I’ve tried out three different Windows machines that come with a stylus and none worked as well as the iPad Pro. For a desktop PC, Wacom still makes great styluses (stylii?), but it’s not terribly portable.

@frauenfelder, have you had a chance to try the Apple pencil and iPad combination? I’d love to read a review from you.
