This week’s featured iPad art is ‘Remix’ by Raheem Nelson – created using the Procreate app. It’s a self portrait that is also a tribute to fellow artists and to those who have influenced and inspired Nelson in his work. Great image and a great concept.

It was really hard keeping this painting a secret but I just didn’t want to ruin the surprise. This iPad painting was inspired by Austin Kleon’s book, Steal Like An Artist.
