May 23, 2010 — by Simon Ng2

iPad is a great device for consuming information such as browsing the web or reading your favorite feeds. On the other hand, David Newman demonstrates iPad as a great tablet for drawing.

With Autodesk’s SketchBook Pro and a Pogo stylus, David draw lots of impressive portraits of people on iPad. Previously worked as a newspaper court artist, David has covered popular tech events including Twitter’s Chirp conference, PayPal DevCamp, Startup Weekend and Google’s IO with his iPad.

If you haven’t heard of SketchBook Pro, it’s a product from Autodesk for professional-grade painting and drawing. SketchBook Pro delivers a complete set of sketching & painting tools through a streamlined and intuitive user interface designed exclusively for the iPad experience.

To learn more about how David draws the painting on iPad. You can check out his full collection on flickr.com. Robert Scoble also caught up with David during Google I/O event and here is a quick video that will give you some ideas about David’s painting on the iPad.

  • Great beat ! I would like to apprentice whilst you amend your website, how can i subscribe for a weblog site? The account helped me a applicable deal. I had been a little bit familiar of this your broadcast offered bright clear concept

  • This is a really great blog. I’ve found so many interesting articles here you don’t find elsewhere. Great site. This post on the Sketchbook Pro and Pogo stylus, is interesting as well, except for one thing: The PoGo? That was one of the first rubber tipped stylus the world of entrepreneurs cloned, using different names, none of which are worth a penny. They skip, break, drag, smear, and aren’t worth anything. I’ve tried so many styluses, never happy with any of them, until I ran into STYLUS-R-US. They are like, wowww! They never skip, smudge, drag, and they don’t require any pressure at all. I’m not sure what the tip is made of but it isn’t rubber and I’ve had mine over 18 months, and they totally rock. They have like, 40 different ones too. Their web site is a little off the wall but then, I didn’t go there to judge their site. If you really want to do note taking or drawing, theirs are the only ones to have.
