Teaneck, New Jersey – Mobile Digital Art (subtitled ‘Using The iPhone and iPad As Creative Tools’) goes beyond the boundaries of a traditional art book by offering easy-to-follow tutorials from each of the participating artists as well as revealing their influences and motivations Because so many apps are ever-evolving and new ones are emerging almost daily, the book’s publisher, Focal Press is creating a website that will provide the most current information on apps, artists and new visions. In addition, Author/Artist/App Developer David Scott Leibowitz has launched an another supporting website, Art N Photo Apps that contains an invaluable resource, a unique list of artist used and artist approved apps for just art, photography, design and video.
Artist / Author David Scott Leibowitz collaborated with 65 mobile digital artists from around the world to display their work and techniques. Using striking, full-color illustrations, as well as the aforementioned tutorials, the book takes the reader through each artist’s creative process and guides them through the application of various, often innovative, techniques to produce original mobile art. As easily accessible to those taking their first steps into digital art and useful for accomplished artists looking to broaden their skills and toolbox, Mobile Digital Art delivers a fun and practical guide to this flourishing form of self-expression. The participating artists range from students to retired teachers, film directors, art directors, designers, iPhoneographers, cartoonists, art app makers and many established artists, all united in a community connected by mobile devices and Flickr.
