MobileArtCon 2011 Recap Video from iAMDA

If you couldn't make it to this year's MobileArtCon hosted by iAMDA (International Association of Mobile Digital Artists) in New York, this video they recently added to YouTube will certainly make you want to go next year.

Such a great range of artists, developers, accessory makers and other creative types all came together for 3 days from 30th September to 2nd October this year and it looks like they had a fantastic time collaborating together and celebrating mobile art and music creation.

We loved watching this video and really wish we had been there, maybe next year...

If you were at MobileArtCon this year please leave us a comment and let us know what you thought.

Mobile Artists Hit the UK

For three days last month a small group of talented iPad artists assembled together in Guildford, Surrey here in the UK for an iAMDA (International Association of Mobile Digital Artists) event, the first of it's kind on these shores.

Organised by Paul Kercal, iPad artist and lecturer at Guildford College, assisted by a number of other artists and faculty staff, the event (Facebook page link) was a great success.

Although a small beginning it bodes well for future exploration and celebration of art creation on mobile, touchscreen, devices. Hopefully next year's event will bigger and attract a larger group of artists as they here about how much fun was had at this year's event.

Paul has created the video below which captures some of the sessions, the artwork created and the social events during the 3 day conference. There are also some photos of the conference on iAMDA's blog.

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.

Here is a bit more detail about the Conference from the Press Release, for more information and to see what it is all about check out the MobileArtCon website:

The free event features artist presentations, app demonstrations, and forums hosted by the world's most prolific artists and app developers. Topics range from publishing and printing options to theoretical discussions behind the evolution of digital art and its community. There will be hands on and interactive workshops including a Master Class demo by noted New York figurative painter David Kassan, whose Gizmodo-featured iPad demo became a 1 million-viewer internet sensation.

The conference also features multiple outside activities including a private artists' reception on October 22nd, plein-air painting sessions throughout the city, and a large scale group exhibition, "Illuminated Touch", displaying artworks generated by the attending artists on October 24th.
