Why I Ordered the iPad: Reason #37

To draw.

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.

  1. 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.
