The video above is a short sample from Jenny Soep, 'documentary artist and illustrator'.

Jenny has made a name for herself in the art/live performance world for her fluid and dynamic style in capturing live music and performances. She has also been artist-in-residence at several events and festivals, as well as her artwork being used in promotional materials and publications.

Enter the iPad

We took an interest in Jenny's work because, more recently, she has been using an iPad to record some of her drawings (using the Brushes app) as in the video above.

Even more interesting is Jenny's brave move to use the iPad's display out mode and project on a large screen her drawing as she does it, live in front of the gathered audience.

We think this gives Jenny's work a unique energy as she reacts to the music, atmosphere and audience around her. It also serves to inform the audience about the creative process as it happens.

Jenny In Action

Below is a video of Jenny in action using the (new to us) app Paint Sapien on her iPad. The video was taken by the app developer Dave Sapien at one of Jenny's exhibitions.
