Ok, work with me here, doing this totally from my new iPad while i am away from home doing some Army training. My wife got me the Mac-daddy of all iPads this week as a going away present and what do i first do with it?
Make a map of course!
The map below took roughly 10 minutes using Adobe Ideas, what it meant to be a quick draft way to make inspirational sketches that come to you. I really dig how it is set up and works, wish it had more options such as textures and layers, but hey, it works on my iPad and I can do work anywhere inspiration hits me, so i cannot complain too much.
This is my second attempt at a map, i couldn’t figure out a way to remove the edge of the drawing as i took a snap shot of my screen (adobe in their wisdom included no export to camera roll option! Morons!)
Below it my very first attempt at mobile ipad map making, not too far removed from my old style, but all made on the iPad.
I just bought the iPad app called Pages, which is a mobile word processor with the ability to export to a PDF, so my next target will be to create the zine completely from the iPad and see what i can do. Once i get settled, odds are i will return to my typical format created on my laptop as it is more robust and powerful than I can do mobile, but in the mean time this is an interesting experiment to try out, and to show the ipad’s power.
