ArtStudio App on my iPod Touch.

Directly from a photo and from imagination.

30-45 minutes.

March-April 2010, I intend to draw a different contemporary artist every day.

Today’s artist is American Mia Robinson (MiaBia_DC on flickr). Mia is a fantastic portraitist and figurative artist working mostly in digital media using various apps on her iPhone and artRage on her modbook. She’s able to get the most amazing painterly textures ranging from the feel of watercolor to the feel of oils. She’s also a great connector and facilitator, who gave us live streaming video from the opening of the iPhone/iPod Touch International Art Exhibit in Chicago, and traveled to NYC recently for an in-person meet-up flickr iPhone/touch artists.

Mia’s flickr imagestream is here.:
