I recently purchased an iPad app titled iDraw, an illustration based app. Think of it as the Adobe Illustrator equivalent for iPad.
Using my Jot stylus, I took time to explore functionalities of each tool found within the toolbox. Even if you don’t use Illustrator often, the tool symbols are pretty easy to understand.
Considering this is an Illustrator app for a tablet, it is expected it will not have the full power Adobe Illustrator has. Yet, everything is very intuitive, it was pretty easy to create shapes and gradients to add depth to any illustration.
Here are simple random illustrations I did using iDraw.
Can’t wait to do more.
I just came from Rockwell Tent to view the Multimedia Arts Festival 2013, an annual event by De La Salle-College of St. Benilde, showcasing collection of multisensory exhibitions displaying distinct and individual concepts. There were many multimedia installations to create stimulated experience of innovative design and art.
It was an inspiring experience. I was reminded of visual arts project I had in college. I miss those days when art was more personal. I’m currently in that phase of being too much of a commercial artist I had forgotten what is was like to create personal art.
I have to get back into my visual groove of things. I just have too.
Check out some art and multimedia exhibitions I was a able to take in the exhibit.
At the entrance, we were given a great book, which serves as portfolio to many amazing student art works of said school. The pages are a joy to look at and I’m now itching to get back to creati g my own art.
There are moments when I know I don’t need anything but when my eyes are stimulated by a visual eye-candy, I say goodbye to common-sense.
Such as what happened yesterday, when I purchased these creative and inspring bookmarks from Rockwell. These vintage looking bookmarks depict different places of Europe, which my husband and I are planning to go to sometime this hear.
I know I can put these into good use, not only as a page-marker but as treasure maps of future European and world trips with my family.
Till then, I drool over these visuals. I really love them.
Twenty-four beautiful bookmarks, each with its own illustration and quotes inspiring its user with every turn of a page.
These bookmarks would look good in any book. I smile whenever I see them.
