Chris Valentine: iPad finger painting



Illustrator and Graphic Designer Chris Valentine was recently commissioned by Core Group (Official distributors of Apple products in SA) to do a portrait for them using the iPad application ‘Brushes’. Chris says, “This was my first time digi-painting without a Wacom or a stylus of sorts, so it was quite a new experience.” The piece is called The Journalist.


Have a look at Chris’s new website for more of his work.
