I’m starting to enjoy the iPhone (and more so, the iPad) as a drawing tool. My father has been creating amateur artwork on his iDevices for a few years now, but I’ve only recently started experimenting. With real, traditional tools– brushes, pencils, paper– I’m atrocious. I enjoy myself, but get overwhelmed by the tools (and by my awfulness). With the iPhone/iPad, I may still be bad, but I’m not overwhelmed. And so I keep going.
I call this one, The Beard Man.

Did I miss reading previous 36 reasons??!! Enjoy…the iDevice
I haven’t even thought of the previous 36. 🙂 37 is a random number.
Not so random if you are a Kevin Smith fan. Does the iPad respond to pressure? So press harder = bigger brush size?
No pressure sensitivity, but “size of touch” sensitive. So you can try to draw with the tip of your finger, or fat fingers, with different effects. I’ll post more of what i’ve done here soon. But more than anything else, it’s a lot of fun to freestyle. The power of undo, erase and zero setup overhead is extraordinary.
