Too many people assume that it takes a MacBook Pro or something similar to create serious digital art, while an iPad is more of a toy. The best response to that is a new video showing album artwork for Muse’s new Simulation Theory album being created with an iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil.

Make your 10.5-inch iPad Pro look like an analog sketchbook

Artists share a bond with their sketchbooks and the company Longo Case thought the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, tools of the modern artists, needed a little help connecting.

The company launched a case that had the spiral wire binding of an analog sketch paper pad. It has a leather, understated back and front cover for protection, taut elastic loops to secure the pencil and a back with pop-out panels to create a kind of tabletop easel.

There was enough of a love connection with the sketch case for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro that Longo Case has one in the works for the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro.
