I’m pretty excited about the stylus. So often, I’ll be out with my kids at lessons, or at the park and want to sketch. While I do often carry a paper sketch book with me, the SketchBook app allows me a greater variety of ‘tools’ at my disposal rather than just a physical pencil (which is often lost in the nether-regions of my purse anyway). Yay for technology! I have a love/hate thing with gadgets, but today, it’s all LOVE.
It was time for a new phone. So this weekend I picked up a Galaxy Notebook. It’s not the latest version (Notebook II is out), but it’s really fantastic. Among other things, it has a pressure sensitive stylus and a sizeable screen. Using Autodesk’s SketchBook Pro Mobile App, I sketched the Jane Austin tribute below (today is the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice) while watching bits of the BBC mini series featuring (be still my beating heart) Colin Firth.
