“Nomad Brush is the first paintbrush stylus designed for the modern day artist or doodler. We’re excited to see the old world craft of art embrace the digital era and make art more accessible for everyone.” Don Lee, Nomad Brush CEO.

The new school year is around the corner and a significant trend for this year’s back-to-school season is the number of iPads and smartphones in students’ hands. Nomad Brush, the first paintbrush stylus for iPads and iPhones, is combining the prevalence and rich app experience of tablets with the passion and creativity of art. Anyone from graduate art students to first grade doodlers have everything they need in their backpacks for spectacular creations on devices they use everyday.

The Consumer Electronics Association predicts tablet sales will grow 157 percent in 2011, with more than 26.5 million units shipped, and education is one of the fastest growing segments for adoption. According to industry analysts, the iPad will be in classrooms across the country, from Seton Hall University providing one to each incoming freshman, to 50 schools in Chicago rolling out 4,500 iPads this year. Youngsters in Nebraska, Ohio, West Virginia, South Carolina and Arizona are slated to use the iPad2 to learn their ABCs and create art.*

Nomad Brush paintbrush styli combine traditional brush-making techniques with modern materials to turn any capacitive touchscreen device into a digital canvas. Available in short or long tips and a mini version for painting on smaller screens, the Nomad Brush is beautifully handcrafted with a professional brush feel, wood handle and rubber ferrule designed to never scratch the screen.

“Tablets can be powerful yet fun educational tools with a great number of apps for students and artists to create,” said Don Lee, Nomad Brush inventor and CEO. “Nomad Brush is the first paintbrush stylus designed for the modern day artist or doodler. We’re excited to see the old world craft of art embrace the digital era and make art more accessible for everyone.”
