iPad Drawing

I haven't talked about it on here yet, but I bought an iPad last week.... and
I LOVE it! This thing has made my laptop obsolete overnight, and man, am I glad I didn't waste my money on a Kindle Reader a few months ago! I downloaded the Kindle app and have been really enjoying reading them on my iPad ( the selection of books on the Amazon Kindle app is far better than iBook that comes with the iPad ).

PLUS, I can draw on the iPad! I purchased a POGO Sketch stylus to draw with, and I've been practicing with it when I can. I'm going to be doing live caricature bookings on the iPad( already have a huge booking on it in Vegas this Fall) so I want to get really good with it. I want my lines to look like my " normal " lines, ya know? But drawing with the POGO is a little weird. There's a definite learning curve. With the sponge-y end, I liken it to drawing with a little pillow on the end of a stick. LOL.

Anyway, I am starting to get the hang of it now, I think. Here's a Ben 10 I drew last night all on the iPad with Sketchbook Pro. Hope ya like!

A few weeks ago, a good friend of mine, Marco Garcia, and I did a Grafitti gig for a client.I got a ton of photos, and am finally downloading them. Here's a few:
The Tag Master, Marco, about to begin his masterpiece...
THIS was too funny. The guests at the event were encouraged to grab a spray can and "Be A Tagger" for the night, painting whatever they wanted. Part of our job was to be "greeters" to our painting area, help the guests, encourage them, and worse case scenario, cover up any profanity or obscene images they might try to write or draw.

Anyway, among the guests was this guy, a for real rocket scientist who grew up in Brooklyn and was a real "Tagger" in his teens. He painted on underpasses, buildings, subways, all while being chased by police, he told us. So we gave him a stylin' paint suit and a can of paint. He was the real deal! Wow, in his fifteen minutes with us he really knocked out a lot of the sponsor company's logo that we were to draw an abstract version of. Free help! Gotta love that!
Here's one of me painting up high. ( And getting "high" from the fumes, LOL. )
The final logo side. The client loved it!
