A quick Apple ipad live fingerpainting demo that I streamed live from my Brooklyn studio on Monday June 21st. 2010, The model sat for 3 hours as I painted and answered questions on how I use the iPad and the Brushes app. Just thinking of creative uses for the ipad.

A few people complained that “tablets can’t be used to create” – the same could be said for any new technology I suppose, but I think we’ll see a lot of amazing art and music come from this form factor as time goes on…

    It’s not so much that you can’t create something beautiful on the iPad. It’s more that you have to try to overcome its limitations, and designing with a handicap does not sell me on the idea.

    The suggestion of a stylus is sometimes mocked, but in one form or another it has shaped art throughout human history. Finger painting is still finger painting.
