Being an architect-artist who has spent the last 14 years of his professional life practicing in New York, Don Lee one day decided to take a one year sabbatical.  And guess what? During this time he discovered the iPad world and its sketching applications.  Although he really tried hard to use his fingers while sketching on his digital canvas, he wasn't satisfied with his painting results and the Nomad Brush for iPad was born.

Don Lee invented this unique paintbrush, which is carefully handcrafted featuring soft and flexible bristles made from a blend of natural and conductive fibers which give instant feedback to the artist, making it a perfect tool for drawing and painting on the iPad.  If you are interested to discover the potential of Lee's brush all you have to do is to order your own for $24.00 USD at the official website of Nomad brush. 

PS. And if you are brave enough you can submit your creations on-line for making more people believe that sometimes blending technology with tradition may have awe-inspiring results!
