I've had another nice write up, this time in The Independent.

The makers of the Jot stylus collection held a competition asking for digital artists to recreate a classic album cover, for a chance to win their new touch sensitive Jot Touch.
I re-created the cover for the Debbie Harry album, KooKoo, using Sketchbook Pro on the iPad1, for which I won third place and will receive a Jot mini. Nice
The winning entries can be seen here.
Are you looking for a way to celebrate a Wedding? Pregnancy? A new arrival?
Looking for a special gift for the grand parents? or would you just like a big portrait of yourself for the living room wall?
My artwork is created from photographs that you send me. It is not a filter, each line, shape, colour, gradient is created manually by me. I can work to specific requirements, including style, colour scheme, print size (max A1 841mm/594mm) etc. Please feel free to test me!
These paintings are all digital vector images and can be printed to any size without loss of quality. Final images are printed on high quality photo paper and posted, rolled up in a cardboard tube. I do not frame them myself as it causes issues with posting but if you have a specific frame, give me the measurements and I will make sure it fits.
Please take a look at the gallery and see if there's anything that inspires you!
The makers of Nomad Brush have started a competition to find the truth behind the new Apple technology, SIRI.
This is my interpretation, painted on the iPad using Sketchbook Pro, but without the Nomad Brush as I don't yet have one. To give me a chance of winning one, please l go to their website and vote for my painting!
What do you think SIRI looks like?
Are you looking for an interesting gift idea? Need to know what to buy for the family this Christmas? Or do you just like the idea of commissioning a portrait of yourself for the living room wall?
This Christmas, I am pimping myself out to create the art that you want. I can paint personalised, bespoke art to your specific requirements. Have a frame to fit? a colour code to match? no problem. You can purchase just the digital image or order a high quality print up to A0 size.
Find me on Facebook or search for "Will Paint for Food".
I don't usually do abstracts but had an idea for these when trying to print iPad paintings and realised how obsessed I had become about resolution and not being able to see the pixels!
Many artists who work digitally still try to replicate traditional styles and techniques, and I too have been guilty of this. We should not be ashamed of showing digital art for what it is, a tightly packed series of pixels (instead of powdered pigments).
Digital artists should embrace and celebrate the pixel!
Ironic really that these paintings are vectors...
My iPad painting, "Expecting" (2011) has been entered into the National Open Art Exhibition in the UK. Looking over the past few years exhibits, there is not much inclusion of digital artwork, so we'll have to wait and see if it is accepted.
It was painted on the original iPad using Steve Sprang's wonderful vector art App, InkPad. Steve was one of the founders of the iPad Art movement when he created the Brushes App, which was adopted by David Hockney.
For other InkPad art, check out the amazing examples in this Flickr group.
