Innovative Artwork - iPad Artist Evan Thomas Creates Digital Works of Art

Art enthusiasts and tech lovers alike are fascinated by this new style of painting.  Using apps like ArtStudio Pro ($4.99, but there's a FREE Lite version) and FinngrPro ($0.99), modern-day artists can create wonderful pieces of digital art on their tablets.

You never know when inspiration will strike.  With this emerging art form, artists can take out their iPads and begin sketching or painting immediately.  Evan Thomas is an iPad artist who started out just drawing as a way to pass the time.  Now he showcases his work at State Fairs and even teaches classes in iPad art.

We are honored that Evan's preferred tool is his TruGlide Stylus!  In his bio below, he talks about how he got started, exhibiting at the California State Fair, and of course, his stylus preference. (I especially like the part where he calls the TruGlide "the greatest thing since sliced cheese"!)


Apple Expected to Release New Gold iPhone

I remember my very first cell phone was a forest green Ericsson flip phone (with a little green screen just big enough to fit a phone number).  I don't think you could even play Snake on it.  One of my sister's first cell phones was a shiny pink Razr.  Now of course, we can buy cases in a million different colors and styles, but our phones are still typically black or white.

Well get ready to camp outside your closest Apple Store, because Apple is expected to come out with a brand new gold iPhone 5S.  Here's a picture of it!!!

Here's the real one....

The new iPhone color has also been referred to as "champagne" and looks very sleek and classy.  Gold is a popular color for smartphones in China, so some suggest Apple is hoping to increase sales there.  Click here to see a stunning slideshow of high-resolution images of the new gold iPhone from Phone Arena.
