Mobile Art Con 2011 announced!!

Mia Robinson

Yes, it is official! Mobile Art Con 2011 is a go!  We have confirmed the dates and location for iAMDA’s 2nd Annual International Conference…err..UN-Conference, and now we want to share it with YOU!

Mobile Art Con 2011 (new name pending) will set up shop at NYU ITP for a 2nd year.  The conference dates are confirmed for October 1-2, 2011 with art making activities, events and ‘happenings’ running the full week prior (9/25-9/30).

We anticipate a bigger and even more exciting event than last year!   If you weren’t able to make it to last year’s gathering, this is your opportunity to see what everyone’s been talking about!  And if you made last year’s–well, let’s just say, it was only the beginning! :-)

So STAY TUNED, everyone! Info on events, travel and how to submit workshop proposals will be released over the next few weeks.

Wanna volunteer? Become a MobileArtCon 2011 Sponsor? Or perhaps you have some ideas about activities or things you’d like to see at the next MobileArtCon. Email us and let us know!

The three day event (February 11-13), sponsored by Adobe Sytsems and organised by college lecturer Paul Kercal in collaboration with the International Association of Mobile Digital Artists (IAMDA), began at Guildford College on Friday with a “next generation” life drawing class for art, graphics, photography and IT students in which tradition met technology. Drawing on iPad using fingers or Pogo styluses, students used art apps to create pictures of models from the respected Brighton Life Drawing Sessions team.

The Nomadbrush – an artist brush for the iPad

Benjamin Rabe

You have to watch the trailer to the end to actually see it in action. I’m not so sure about mimicking traditional tools to use on multi-touch interfaces though.
