    Hi Jenny, many thanks for sharing this with us. I think lots of people would love to make the leap to drawing digitally and your work is real inspiring.

    I bought a very cheap (£1) stylus and had a play on my iPad using the Paper app. It’s great – it takes the form of a sketchbook and the drawing tools are very enabling. I think what’s hard for many (me!) is that I associate drawing on an iPad with something my 7 year old does and therefore not an adult – which is crazy!!!!!! The paper app really gave me permission (I shouldn’t have needed it) to have a play and I’ll definitely be using it as an add-on to my visual diary one-a-day drawings (/?p=13792)

    Thanks jenny

    Jenny – thanks very much for sharing your process of digital drawing with AccessArt. I find your images really interesting on two accounts – one the subject matter which feels completely original – you capture the moment but also add your own poetic interpretation of the experience – making them ‘electric’ – the images make me feel a real sense of curiosity! Also, the original and experimental approach of using technology – with the portability of the technology it should not seem so incredible to me to be drawing on it from ‘life’ – I use my phone a lot as a camera but not as a drawing tool – I’d actually never have imagined it! So fabulous to see these immediate and exciting images on AccessArt – thank you and please keep us up to date with your work.
    AccessArt members reading this – please share how you use digital media in your working process!

    Hi Sheila and Paula – thanks so much for your lovely words – pleased as punch to be a contributor. There are quite a few apps out there, Brushes being the app David Hockney used with such aplomb, and it even used to record timelapses of the drawings though unfortunately just now the converter doesn’t seem to be working. Sketchbook Pro has just updated itself with a timelapse facility which has really intriguing potential. I have a couple of friends who use Procreate to fantastic effect, and I also use KIK as a very simple way to send textable drawings back and forth between friends who own a smart phone. Would indeed be brilliant to know how others use their digital media to draw!

    My partner has an exhibition of his work using the ipad.
    Check out Neil Eckersley on the Saatchi website, Thomas Storey gallery in Lancaster. He has very positive remarks about his work
