Mobile Phone Art

samsung galaxy note 2 art

Up until very recently my mobile/cell phone was an old Nokia brick that didn’t know what the Internet was. When it finally died on me I decided I would get with the times and upgrade to a smart phone. I didn’t want an Apple iPhone as everyone seems to have one.. and me being me had to go with something different. So I went with a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 because it had a big screen and a PENCIL!!

After learning what an App was I downloaded the SketchBook Pro application and wow, how cool is it? It’s very intuitive and easy to use, especially if you have used Photoshop before (I ended up downloading the Photoshop app too). I still haven’t explored it fully, but here’s a some experiments with it..

mobile phone art

Happy picture because I must have been happy that day!

cell phone portrait

Portrait of some guy that happened to be on a newspaper sitting in front of me.

coffee and biscuits

Two cups of coffee and a packet of chocolate biscuits. It really looks like pencil or pen huh?

cell phone drawing

Playing around with layering and lines on the phone.

alien cell phone art

Weird cell phone art! This is an alien or monster of some kind I guess. Just playing with the different brushes and effects on the SketchBook pro app.

drawing of sandals

These are my paint spattered sandals. They’re very worn and tattered but I love them dearly!

Are there any other cool apps for artists out there? I have used SketchBook Pro and the Photoshop app. They’re both excellent. My most used application on my phone is the card game Solitaire by Brainium! I have wasted too many hours on that thing so I don’t recommend downloading it!!

Australian artist and observer of things.. all kinds of things. I like a wide variety of art, from the weird and wonderful to the bold and beautiful.. and everything in between.

    Those are great. Amazing to think they’re done using a phone. Technology!

    Great sketches! If you only knew a phone can do all that stuff you would have gotten them 10 years ago :)

    iPhone aint that bad.

    • Thank you kindly. And yeah, they are pretty useful, smart phones. They make people stupid as theyre always looking down at them, but the phones themselves are smart ;-)

      iPhones may not be bad at all but Apple is eviiiiiiiil :-P
