His YouTube Channel explores the wonderful world of design and creativity, including many segments that feature SketchBook Pro (below, we’ve listed out a few of our favorites)

In this video, we asked Jacob to have a little fun with SketchBook Pro and he came up with an unconventional project idea, involving a birthday surprise and commissioning a few artists from Weta Workshop, Russell Dongjun Lu & Amit Dutta.
