'iTouch!' digitally drawn self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) I drew this with my finger on my iPod Touch - fabulous!

With vers 2.0 of the iPod touch/iPhone software, released last week, there are now independently developed applications - including several promising draw/ paint/ scribble/ doodle programs. Reviewers are whining about the $2 - $6 costs, but obviously they've never paid full price for photoshop (OK, these programs have a long way to go before they can be compared with photoshop). I downloaded the four most interesting ones and took them for a spin. Although the interface for Lint Labs' No. 2 (like No. 2 pencil) has some clunky-ness (double-click would be a much better way to turn the pencil on and off, for instance), it is the one that gives the most precise control and allows you to really draw - and erase, for goodness sake! Can't wait to see how these grow as the developers, um, develop them!

Of course, I don't understand a word of your comments but I do like the picture.

Hi - I just stumbled onto your blog via my Candor Gallery widget on my Mac. Wonderful work. I just saw this sketch. It's really lovely. Now I am going to look at the app your are referring to. Last week I downloaded Sketches, another iPhone/iPod Touch app. Not bad at all. Great to meet you via your site!
