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.

September…Our guilty pleasure.

You’ve probably guessed that we think September rocks! We are of course big fans of Summer and love nothing more than taking a well deserved holiday. But really, everyone knows September is where it’s at… So we’re giving you full permission to embrace our guilty pleasure.

Here’s a round-up of the top reasons why we love this month. Do you agree or have anything to add? Let us know and we’ll give a FREE Maglus to the best comment!

1.Take advantage of that Back-to-School Mindset!   

September is the perfect month for setting yourself new goals and starting afresh. Don’t waste that get-prepared mindset of this back-to-school time of year! Shorter evenings mean more time to spend indoors to work on new projects. And all that ‘September studious’ buzz is giving us so many ideas. Plus it’s the perfect excuse to finally use all that stationery you’ve been swooning over!

Happy St.Patrick’s Day – Not a shamrock in sight

What springs to mind when you think of St.Patrick’s Day – Shamrocks? Leprechauns? A green Liffey?
We wanted to show you that there is more to Ireland than that…

Can a walk on the beach change everything?

In James Joyce’s “Ulysses”, Sandymount strand in Dublin is the scene for what many think to be the birth of post-modernist writing. When the character Stephen Dedalus finds himself in need of some “beach-time”, Joyce switches into a stream of consciousness narrative.

“Under its leaf he watched through peacocktwittering lashes the southing sun. I am caught in this burning scene. Pan’s hour, the faunal noon. Among gumheavy serpentplants, milkoozing fruits, where on the tawny waters leaves lie wide. Pain is far.”
