In 2009 the artist David Hockney started to draw with his thumbs on his iPhone. The following year, when the iPad came out, he started drawing often with a stylus pen. "This medium had a big advantage because it is backlit and I could draw in the dark. I never had to get out of bed," Hockney writes.
Hockney made the iPhone and iPad drawings between 2009 and 2012 from the view from his bedroom in Bridlington, East Yorkshire. "From about April to August, when the sun is in the north, the sun would wake me up at about 4:30 in the morning if I didn't pull the curtains or lower the blinds," he writes. "I never thought I'd see the sunrise without the iPhone."
