Paper by 53
Yay! We have an iPad in the house and I am all over it, learning how to use Paper by 53, an app I’ve been dying to dig into since I learned about it at Tapestry in March. Paper is a simple, intuitive drawing tool for the iPad used mainly by illustrators. It has a ton of potential as a sketching tool for painters. I would love to see more fine artists get into it.
Ready to try? The app is simple enough for you to just download on your iPad or iPhone and start noodling around. When you get stuck, check out this series of posts at mademistakes. It is chock full of tips and will help un-stick you. For more information geared toward data visualization and sketch notes, check out Catherine Madden’s website.
