iPad Portraits of Innovators
I will have my fourth one-person exhibition this weekend showing color Giclée prints from my iPad portraits series at iOSDevCamp 2011 at PayPal HQ in San Jose, California.
As Artist-in-Residence of this year's iOSDevCamp, I will paint portraits of attendees from life with my iPad using Autodesk’s Sketchbook Pro application.
The show is open to registered attendees of the $50 conference starting Friday July 15th through the weekend.
After studying with great professors such as Wayne Thiebaud, Manuel Neri, Roland Peterson, Cornelia Schulz, David Gilhooly and John Fitz Gibbon at the legendary UC Davis art department and graduating from UC Berkeley with a BFA, I have been painting portraits from life since the 1970’s when I worked as a newspaper courtroom artist. I painted my first computer graphics paintings in 1982, and began painting with the Mac on the first day it became available in 1984.
In 2006, I began a series of ink-on-paper portraits inspired by Silicon Valley innovators. Since the iPad came out in April 2010, I’ve been using the iPad exclusively to paint portraits from life.
