Looking for a new sketchbook, I decided to venture out from the normal black hard cover acid free books that I usually buy. I spent some time looking and reading about various sketchbooks and found many great choices.

I decided to write a post about iPhone apps to explore how art is influencing the world around us. I set out to find apps that are creative and imagery to interact with the user in a unique way.

I am getting pretty excited about the tools being developed for the iPhone / iPod and have been looking into which of these tools are the best for artists. As I am looking are, I found the apps that I listed here. These are apps that I have seen people using and praising the most.
A few weeks ago I posted a quick review of Sketchbook Mobile for iphone/ipod. Since then I have found some amazing work that has been completed on these devices. These drawings use various iPod / iPhone apps to arrive at the final product. I can’t even imagine the work that went into each of these. Kudos to these and other iPhone / iPod artists out there that are pushing the boundaries.
