David Kassan painting from life with the iPad 2, using the Nomad Brush and ArtRage

David Kassan is no stranger to iPad painting, in fact it's safe to say that he is one of the most popular iPad artists currently on the scene. It's great to see David putting both the Nomad Brush and ArtRage (both of which we adore) to such superb use.

As an aside. Looking at David use the iPad 2 it struck us how much we really want an iPad Pro, basically an iPad with a larger screen. 15" would be perfect, but we wouldn't turn our noses up at a 13" iPad either. Are we alone here, do you see a market for a larger iPad?

David Kassan uses a Nomad Brush Stylus

We came across this video from TechWebTV at this year's CES and the thing that stood out to us was New York based artist and iPad experimenter David Kassan using the Nomad Brush stylus we mentioned a few days ago.

David uses it with the fantastic ArtRage for iPad to paint oils onto his virtual canvas and you can see him blending in the oils, selecting colours, using the ArtRage interface, all with the Brush.

This gets us excited to think that the Nomad Brush can be used properly by a real artist as an input device on the iPad for painting. It looks like this may be the start of a new type of stylus for iPad artists.

If you have a Nomad Brush stylus or plan to get one, let us know in the comments.

MobileArtCon in New York this weekend - You Are Invited

We would dearly love to be in New York this weekend! Starting tomorrow 22nd October and continuing through to Monday 25th the first ever iAMDA (International Association of Mobile Digital Artists) Mobile Art Conference will be held at will be held at New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at the Tisch School of the Arts.

The focus is on art and music created on handheld touchscreen devices, our favourite topic.

The Conference itself is on Saturday (23rd) and Sunday (24th). The Conference programme looks amazing with live demonstrations and hands-on sessions from some of the leading lights in iPad (and other mobile device) painting including David Kassan.

We are very excited for everyone who will be involved in MobileArtCon and wish everyone the best for this weekend's activities, we are sure everyone will have a lot of fun.
