The Maglus Stylus Brush Tip – Painting from Dawn to Dusk

You spoke, we listened! Maglus users were keen to learn more about the Brush Tip and what exactly it can do. The post below was originally shared when the Tip launched. But it was so good, we thought we’d share it again! PLUS…Read to the end to get a FREE Brush Tip!

CAPTURING IRELAND

How many pictures could you create in a day?

We sat artist and animator Fergal Brennan down, equipped with nothing more than a brush-tipped Maglus stylus and an iPad (using Procreate app), in front of the ever changing light outside his window. His singular goal was to complete 5 minute sketches from 7am to 7pm.

How did he get on? Wonderfully! He managed to produce 65 very beautiful sketches. We were so impressed, that we convinced him to composite them into a 30 second animation, complete with soundscape. The result can be seen below, highly evocative and available to be enjoyed by anyone who would like a 30 second stroll down Sandymount Strand in Dublin, Ireland.

A Little Treat…Stunning Seaside Silhouette

We’re always encouraging Maglus users to get in touch with us. It’s great when people share their work and show us what they’ve achieved with Maglus. Through this communication, we have developed relationships with really talented(and nice!) individuals, who we now call ‘Friends of Maglus’.

One such friend is Yvonne J Foster. We originally shared a version of this blog post a few months ago and got a brilliant response. Since then, we know there are lots of new Maglus users. We thought it would make sense to showcase this beautiful content once again.

Brighton Panorama – Yvonne J Foster

We got a brilliant response from Yvonne’s blog post last week. As so many of you admired her work and story, we’ve decided to show you some more! Through chatting with Yvonne over emails, we discovered a really lovely project she had been working on – ‘Brighton Panorama’. The monochrome silhouette images really caught our attention and we knew that we just had to share them! We’ll leave you in the capable hands of the talented lady herself to explain the interesting journey from sketch to reality…

Hello again!

Work began on this project in early 2014.

A sketched version was sold in a charity auction raising money for Mind at Happy Planet’s Doodlefest in May 2014.

Art and Mental health – Yvonne J Foster

We’ve a guest blogger this week, a lovely friend and user of Maglus – Yvonne J Foster. Yvonne is a Brighton based artist and designer. Using iPad, photography, collage and her general scribblings, she creates her own world. We think Yvonne’s work is very special and the story behind it is even more inspirational.

Read on and enjoy looking at some of her beautiful pieces…

Hi, Yvonne here. I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself and what I do. So…here goes!

I simplify portraits of people and remove all their complications. I break down images into each component part, shape and colour. I love to disappear into my work and get caught up in the details.

Shakefest – Tagtool Projection on Charleville Castle!

Our last post touched on Shakefest and the involvement of creative duoBenjamin Rabe and Fabric Lenny AKA Bunny & the Beardman. Specialising in engaging installations, the Maglus maestros seemed the perfect candidates to put on an exciting show!

So the Maglus team took the guys on a roadtrip to Tullamore, Co.Offally to celebrate this festival of World Cultures, Art and Dance!
