As mobile phones get smarter and smarter, it gets more challenging to choose just one. I like the iPhone for its photography, video, and sound. I like the stylus on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. It’s like carrying around a mini-Wacom tablet!

If you’ve been reading other posts on my blog you’ll find my references to Aeolian Harp app created by Uwe Oestermeier, and Paper Artist, produced by JFDP-Labs.

In the past few months I’ve been experimenting with the Samsung Note 3’s S-Note. I’m hooked on the spontaneity of the medium and the ease of the stylus.

The Aeolian Harp app has you uniquely playing harp music while you draw elegant line drawings.

Paper Artist has 30 filters you can apply to photos and make them immediately look hand-rendered.

I’d highly recommend you treat yourself to any or all three. What’s your favorite app for drawing?

Happy New Year!

This photo was taken using the Paper Artist app ($2.99). See http://www.paperartist.net for more info. Developed by JFDP labs, you can turn any photo into paper art.

I love to make abstract imagery so snapping this photo of the lamp to my left created this image using the “Cadrega” style. You can modify an image in your photo library or use the camera that’s built-in.

There’s over 30 styles to choose from! Stay tuned for more abstracts created using them.
