Straight for the art | Jim Lee’s iPad fingerpaintings

by  in Comic News Comment

The benefits of early adoption: As Apple’s iPad takes the world by storm despite its dubious utility, DC Co-Publisher Jim Lee is taking his iPad and creating some pretty lovely portraits of Batman’s rogues gallery. The Dave McKean/Arkham Asylum-influenced Joker above is one of a pair of images of the Clown Prince of Crime Lee posted to Twitpic after losing his first and (according to him) best one to a crash, and there’s a Catwoman — “fingerpainted” on the iPad screen using Sketchbook Pro — below. Stay tuned to Lee’s Twitter account for more, I would imagine (and hope).
