Speaking of vector program alternatives, I was also told about iDraw by illustrator George Coghill (he’s been using it for a while now). iDraw seems quite feature-rich and offers both a desktop version ($25) and an iPad app ($9). Yes, $25 for a desktop vector program. Are you listening Adobe??

There seems to be no shortage of digital drawings tools for the iPad, but Inkr might be the first one made for actually drawing on paper.

And what a simple, brilliant idea — an iPad app that lets you take photos of your sketches, resize them, overlay custom grids, and then — presto — acts as a lightbox for refining the drawings further.

A nice free online drawing app. It works without Flash and even works on the iPad.

The official Wacom Inkling page is up, mid-September, $199 (via Google+)

I predict Wacom will see better sales from this than any other product they’ve ever made. Absolutely amazing.

Amiga - Disney Animation Studio (1990) 

I spent countless hours using this software as a kid. It breaks my heart I have none of the animation I created using it, or the work I created with Autodesk Animator, the other piece of software that kept me out of daylight on weekends.

Paint Tool Sai

A (new?) raster drawing program that the fantastic Steve Lambe filled me in on tonight. It is for PCs only right now, but MAC users should check this out (though I haven’t tried it yet).

From Steve:

It’s like someone took Flash’s awesome drawing tools, merged it together with Sketchbook’s natural feel for drawing. I’m digging it big time.

Yes. Another Backup Lecture. | 43 Folders

Merlin Mann walks through his redundant, automated back-up solution. If you’re reading this blog there’s a good chance you’re a working illustrator, which means you have plenty of files that are important to you — and important to your clients.

I use a combination of Apple’s Time Machine and Dropbox, but I know even that’s not enough to cover my butt in the long run. Are you backing up your work? And are you confident in your backup solution? From the linked article:

  1. If it’s not automated, it’s not a real backup.
  2. If it’s not redundant, it’s not a real backup.
  3. If it’s not regularly rotated off-site, it’s not a real backup.
