Nancy Dinger Aikins paints and draws with her finger…using an iPad! Her style is very unique and she is explorative in her approach to her art. Using principles in color theory, design, use of theme and pattern, she creates visually-appealing energetic compositions. She uses art Apps such as ArtRage, ArtStudio, Paper53, Repix, Percolator and DistressedFX to make her artistic art work. With confidence and integrity, she pushes and manipulates the tools and her images to extremes, in her personal journey which she shares with us in her work.

Nancy currently has some of her work on display in a group exhibit at Coffee Phix, 4441 Mayfield Road, South Euclid, Ohio 44121 through March 2014.

You can find Nancy’s iPad art on her web site, Doodling in the Dark, at www.nancy-aikins.squarespace.com and selected pieces for sale on her ETSY site, Every Crayon in the Box, at www.etsy.com/shop/everycrayoninthebox.

Data Fees Everywhere; For Tablet Add Another

September 30, 2011

By Janet Dodrill

Someday soon I would like an iPad or tablet, however I do not want to pay for another data plan. I pay for one for my computer internet service, I pay for one for my smart phone, and am looking at paying for one with a tablet. I would like to take the tablet traveling and have access anywhere, hence I would need more than a wireless capability. The computer DSL, smartphone, and potential iPad could currently not be combined by one carrier. Does anyone else suffer from this dilemma?

Amazon is releasing a new tablet, Kindle Fire, available this fall. It is said to be half the size and less than have the price of an Apple iPad [read the Kindle Fire article]. It’s cute [see the Kindle Fire product]. It has web, and the capacity for movies, apps, games and reading (Does it really need a camera?).

What are the ways people justify it as a business expense? I know it would make a great traveling portfolio for any graphic designer or web designer.
