The work seen here is part of my Personal Challenge series called Graphic Doodles. The idea is (1) to challenge myself to make something everyday, (2) to create somethiing along the "graphic" style, and (3) use only my imagination and spontaneity to create the composition. This last part, number three, is a big challenge for me since most of my past works have been in the style of Photorealism. I still love Photorealism but I do want and need to try new things.

Drawing on the iPad is somewhat unnatural when it's set on a tabletop or even a stand. When you are trying to draw on the edge of the screen, the hand falls of the tiny border of the iPad.

So I invented then drawing board for the iPad. The Ipad sets flush inside the glossy white acrylic panel and the screen is flush with the top surface. Perfect for desks, worktables, or even mobile when you need a workdesk, this will provide enough space to rest your palm while drawing, painting or writing.



Bring your graphic tablet, iPad or smart phone.
It's easy and fast!
