Real artists use an iPad

One of the most impressive things about the iPad so far has been the way that artists have taken to it as a creative device. Our Flickr group is growing fast and there are some excellent examples there of iPad produced art using various apps.

If you have ever wondered how an artist goes about creating their art on an iPad, have a look at the video below from New York based artist David Jon Kassan. It is a 3 hour sitting condensed down into just under 8 minutes, and it is amazing to watch how David builds and blends the portrait with the wonderful Brushes app.

Apparently the sitting was broadcast as a live stream last Monday, 21st June from David's studio, during which he chatted and answered questions about using the iPad for creative purposes. If you saw any of that live stream and heard what David had to say we would like to hear what you thought in the comments.

In the meantime, grab a drink, sit back, and watch an artist at work:

I was there! David has a few hundred (more) fans that follow him.. and we were right there with him in his studio when he used the ipad to draw/paint! (What do you call the art of creating a portrait using Brushes on an ipad?) The collaborative effort to create the portrait, the music and the video is so refreshing vs. the lonesome computer user.
