Work: Microsoft Surface Video

“I want to wake up every day and say, ‘I did what I wanted to do today and nobody told me to do it.’ To me, that’s freedom.”

The outline

For world-renowned comic book artist and writer Francis Manapul, inspiration can be found anywhere – and he showed us just that, over one amazing day.

Some would say he’s already had a storybook career; bringing heroes like Batman and The Flash to life for DC comics. But now, Francis has set his sights higher by creating and writing his own original comic – a creative metamorphosis made possible with help from his Microsoft Surface Pro 3.


“I love being able to grab my Surface, go on the run, and come up with ideas anywhere.”

The details

Rather than telling us where he finds inspiration, Francis took us there. From capturing photos, unique textures and styles from the world around him, to enjoying an espresso at his favourite Italian restaurant – he works wherever the Surface Pro 3 can go, and that’s anywhere he chooses.

The finished piece

The motivating mini-documentary was shared globally, not only to help inspire others, but to show them how they can—without compromise—seamlessly incorporate Surface Pro 3 into their creative process and bring their inspiration to life.
