ILLUSTRATION ALUMNA CREATES AMAZING IMAGES ON HER IPAD USING “ART RAGE”

Hue is totally in love with the drawings of Monika Maniecki, Illustration MFA ’11.  Recently, she’s been creating drawings on her iPad using a program, “Art Rage.”

Hue asked Monika what it’s like to draw on her iPad and she said, “I use a ‘nomad brush’—a stylus that’s like a real brush, with bristles. There’s a tiny lag time between when you make a stroke and when it appears, so it’s hard to control it completely.  There’s more of a distance between you and the surface. But I like the challenge: I have to embrace the idea that it’s not perfect.”

This isn’t Monika’s first time drawing digitally, of course; at FIT, she took a course called Integrating Digital with Traditional Media.  Now she teaches it.

Maybe someday, if you’re lucky, Monika will paint your portrait.
