Just a quick little Friday note to share a neat tool that I’ve started using recently: the Nomad Brush for the iPad. My friend Keene saw it first and told me about it, and naturally I had to check it out. My initial review is that it’s very cool for painting and drawing. I still prefer my fingertip for visual recording, but the Nomad brush has a more natural feel than the Pogo Sketch stylus for doing softer, more painterly work. The bristles are very soft and flexible and it looks just like a real paintbrush. I have to be careful not to mix it with my regular ones!
Here’s a terrible picture of me making squiggly lines so that you can see the bristles fan out:
