Fingerpainters Take Manhattan – Mobile Art Con 2010

Last weekend I attended the Mobile Art Con 2010 at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. It was an amazing experience and I was fortunate to meet so many incredibly talented people. I will probably have to write about it in several posts because so much happened, but here are some highlights for me:

The Warm Up Party at the Lolita Bar sponsored by Brushes and meeting artists who I’ve followed on Flickr for the last year

Fingerpainting on my iPad at the Temple of Dendur at the Metropolitan Museum

Watching Fabric Lenny draw on his iPad at Times Square

The Illuminated Touch Exhibit at the Openhouse Gallery

Drawing at the Julia Kay Portrait Party Meet Up  at the High Line in NYC

There is a blog post on the Eye ’em site which (surprisingly) has two of my Hipstamatic photos in it.  You can also see photos from the event at the iAMDA site. There is also a video from Sketchbook Mobile on YouTube which gives an overview of the event-I can seen almost at the end.

As I said, I’m still processing all the experiences and things I learned, so there will be more Mobile Art Con posts to come in the next couple of days.

Mobile Art Conference 2010 in NYC

We are just days away from the Mobile Art Conference in NYC at NYU – ITP Tisch School for the Arts. This will be a wonderful opportunity to meet other mobile artists and learn more about the various apps and techniques. I am especially looking forward to learning more about printing my artwork. The conference will close with the Illuminated Touch 2010 exhibit on Sunday, October 24th at the Openhouse Gallery from 7 to 10 p.m.  You can learn more about the conference and the exhibit at the site.

Yesterday I went to an amazing Frida Kahlo themed Dr. Sketchy at a warehouse in Brooklyn. These were some of the props for the stage setup. I loved the skulls, especially the one with the open mouth smile on the bottom left.

About two weeks ago I went to a Twilight themed Dr. Sketchy at the Bowery Poetry Club in NYC. Madam Rosebud was Edward and Little Brooklyn was Bella.

Moo mini cards-Wildwood

Moo mini cards-wildwood pictures, originally uploaded by Ritaflo.

In preparation for the Mobile Art Conference I had some Moo mini cards made up. I used about 25 different images but I really liked the way these four images looked together. Being able to use so many different images on the cards is good for someone who is indecisive as myself. I was really happy with the colors and the texture of the paper.
