  1. … and it pretty much looks like handpainting made by childrens, really.

    People talk about him just because he uses ipads, what about the people who have been drawing on touchscreens for the past 20 years.

    Also what does this has to do with mobile music? Will you also report about drawings made on a Wacom or on a real tablet?

  2. if you know any children that draw like this,
    buy the drawings because they would be very
    talented and mostlikely become famous.

  3. So should I buy all the drawings my friend's childrens make? Because their drawings are much better than the ones presented here.

    I think I will follow your advice, but I don't think I'll get famous just by owning some famous artists arts, I might be rich though 🙂

  4. Truthfully, though… what sets apart Hockney's work on the iPad from the work of just about anybody in the ArtRage forums? Not much. It's pretty uninspired and amateurish, frankly. Granted, he's in his 70's, but why we should care about his half-baked iPad creations?

  5. that's the game in art,
    it's easier for a bad painting with a good story
    than for the good painter with a bad or no story.

    First you say : “if you know any children that draw like this,
    buy the drawings because they would be very
    talented”.

    Which seems to say you thought it was awesome. And then you say : “that's the game in art,
    it's easier for a bad painting with a good story
    than for the good painter with a bad or no story.”

    So is the art good or bad? 🙂

  7. I think he means both; If a 5 year-old did it, it shows promise, so buy it now because they may end up becoming renowned later. If an established artist who has been creating popular art for 50+ years did it, there's no excuse for its amateurism.

  8. I think I meant I like the drawing, but more as
    a quick sketch and less as a hockney.
    Often well known painters have some sattelite dude
    who tries to sell anything to anyone.
    Hockney is probably wondering right now
    where that flowersketch has gone……
