Yes, I’m hooked on Jen Bekman’s 20×200 and I’ve ordered another print.

The iSketches are drawn on location using an iPhone application called Brushes. No photo references, no tablets, no brushes to wash: just my finger on the tiny touch-screen. Don’t even need a proper light: the drawing itself glows in a dark corner. At $4.99, Brushes is a very democratic tool (provided you have an iPhone, sure) and I suspect it’ll be to drawing what email was for letter-writing. Something is lost, something is gained.
I only got an iPhone in February 2009, so all this is still very new. It all started when I realized I could draw while night-riding in a car. Soon I found myself sketching NY spots that are part of my life. I’ve lived in the USA for 20 years and I’m still looking at its urban landscape as if I was discovering it for the first time.
Yea! Look what was waiting for me when I got home from ignitenyc – sweetness. If you haven’t heard of 20×200 yet- then click over and check it out. This is a place where almost any art lover can be an art collector. The entire 20×200 experience was seamless and I am so pleased with my untitled (blue) by David Corbett.
