Tired Of The Mouse

One of the reasons I enjoy creating on my iPhone, is it takes me out of my usual process. The image above I created with Fuzel It’s similar to Grid Lens but lets you make your own slices that you can load up with images. The lines are the slices I made and then I added a tringle to each slice. (I added the clouds with Blender). This is all fairly simple to do in Photoshop with masks but not nearly as simple to manipulate. Being able to tap points and change their size as I’m moving them around feels much more “organic”. I find the results are less forced and there seems to be a more natural progression of the design. I recently switched from a mouse to a tablet which I find much more natural, but you really cant beat direct contact with the screen. Posted by: Seth Hardie Instagram: @hallwood

probably not a problem for those with an iPad, but my fat fingers always seem to get in the way of the more minute edits I try to do on my iPhone…

The thing I really like about making art on the iPhone are the constraints in which you have to work. There’s tons of freedom but boundaries that keep it from getting too out of control. While I haven’t taken anything I’ve done beyond simply posting to instagram, I like looking at the apps as a sketchpad for getting an idea down that could be turned into a large print, or a desktop wallpaper. It would take far less time in Photoshop with that phone-created idea than if I just sat down at a blank screen. When I used to do posters for the band I was in for several years, I loved the creative process, but would have given anything to have had tools like this in my phone.

the thing i love about designing on the iphone is that i seem to be okay with playing and discovering more. on the computer, i tend to know the result i’m going to get and i give myself less license to make mistakes.

great work as always, seth.

typo} didn’t post, which has lead to *even redder face*I ineendtd to say, before all this kerfuffle:”Ah you can’t beat the comfort of a new bed – throw in newly laundered sheets and that’s perfection right there.Such adorable photos – love the dreamy (apt!) quality.”…but I feel the sentiment has been somewhat lost in all this…
