I had an awesome opportunity this morning. For those who haven’t heard, this morning was the world premiere release of Apple’s iPad.

Scott and I arrived at the Apple Store to purchase our iPad early this morning. After activating it and syncing it to Scott’s Macbook Pro, I began my first iPad Caricature.

As far as we know, and as far as the store manager knew, since we started the caricatures so early, I was the first person in the world to draw iPad Caricatures! Woohoo!

It was an interesting event. Though I knew the program from using it on the iPhone, I had never touched an iPad until moments before beginning to draw. (And technically, due to Apple’s security, none of the store employees had even seen or touched one until that morning, either!)

This is going to be an exciting new genre and I’m thrilled that this first introduction of iPad Caricatures went so well. Those who were drawn were each emailed their photos instantly.

Check out the photos below of some of the samples. Just keep in mind, this was my first day with this new touch computer! I’ll be posting more pictures of these events on a new site I created just for this:

    Completely awe struck. Wow! This is something really cool and portable, I mean, just wow angie! The ipad is something that I truly think is a tool for a digital artist as you have said before–my mom is sold—my dad still needs a little bit of convincing 😉 remember, the quiet guy who never talked? XD These are really good, can’t wait to see you grow as an ipad artist–I mean if this is a good as you are on something like sketchbook pro I’m guessing–I could only imagine what you’d do on a better program! Talk to you soon!

  5. Brilliant Angie – I couldn’t thin of a reason to get one – you’ve got me thinking now !
    Sensitivity OK ?

    All power to you.

    First, thank you Kamal, Cedric, Pavel, ZAX and Terry for kind words.
    I am using Sketchbook Pro and you can get the Pogo Sketch pen at the Apple Store.
    Terry, thanks for the article! Unfortunately, there is no sensitivity on the pen and the drawing end is flat, so you will need to get a hang of this. The color seems to work great with the pen. I have yet to test the prints, but I will post about it when I do.

    Wow Angie
    This is very exciting, congrats to you. Did I read there isn’t a printer port?

      This was a very cool opportunity. Thanks also for the link and mention on your blog. That’s very kind!! There is no “printer port” but that’s not a problem because you can still print – wirelessly. All you need is a wireless printer (or a printer plugged into a wi-fi router) and the iPad can print using any number of printing apps (free download). We did this last night to our HP printer.
