Pixar Animator Don Shank's iPad Paintings Are Epic

Pixar animator Don Shank's iPad paintings prove that the modern canvas is a brilliant medium for creating artistic pieces. Shank has worked on projects such as 'Ren & Stimpy,' 'The Incredibles' and 'Up,' and for these paintings, he uses his fingers and the iPad's Brushes tool to produce his works.

Although most of Don Shank's iPad paintings are abstract, he does jestingly refer to some of his pieces as "indoor plein comput-air painting."

Implications - These iPad paintings are super cool as they give artists the option of playing back their paintings right on the iPad and watch it recreate itself without the artist's hand. The painting's "actions" file can even be compressed to an email and reprinted to be up to six times its size in height and width.
