I am not as prolific as in my ThousandSketches days. But when the urge comes I find I’m enjoying my productions. I recently sold a few prints and loved making them. Last night I thought about spring. I made the image below, Day I called it. So I also made a Night. Next post.
Went to the apple store in San Francisco today and heard iPad artists talk about their medium. I particularly liked the work of hgberk in flckr There is also a show on in San Francisco I might try to get there next Tuesday.
Future/Canvas – the emerging medium of ipad art:
It has been just over a year since the release of the iPad and already it has inspired an exciting new world of digital art. Artists and programmers are using the iPad as a digital canvas and are creating radical new artwork that pushes the bounds of imagination. Future/Canvas showcases a variety of different artistic pursuits involving the iPad from interactive art to photography to painting. Taking place during the Apple World Wide Developer Conference, this is a must-stop destination for iPad enthusiasts who are interested in art. The original Future/Canvas was the first ever multiple-artist iPad art show held in December 2010 at The Box Factory in San Francisco. Our goals is to encourage the creation of iPad art by bringing together the diverse range of people necessary to create it in an environment that demonstrates the possibilities of the medium.
This brush stroke, there are a few apps that do it, is wonderfully sketchy, not at all computery, and like nothing in rl. That’s what fascinates me with it. Note Nothing like it in real life, you can’t buy a paint brush to do this, it is not an emulation. The apps it comes with are primitive, but that is ok.

This shows the technical possibilities.
These two sketches are both off the iPhone. Calligraphic doodles, put through various apps. What do you think? Do the apps enhance or destroy?
The less adulterated originals follow.

Another with the same app, this time from a photo I took of a tussock.
Two images made on the iphone using ToonPaint. But not only the ap of course. Various levels of sampeling going on here. They are are from photos I took from the TV screen, while I was watching a video about Alice Neel, Very impressive!
The shapes and rhythms of calligraphy are on my mind. Calligraphy free from writing. Free from letters. I am having a binge. Will post more that I’m doing on my M200 but here is one with letters from the phone.
This is an image of Edgar Degas.
It began as a self portrait. Was captured in a movie and then I snapped it off the TV – made this using an iphone ap. But is it art? Anyway, I like it.
