I got am iPad Air for Christmas from Andy, which is very cool to start with. Then I got a case that has an elastic band to put your hand through, making it easy to hold up for a long time. Some of my "Painting with Pixels" students had brush styluses, (styli?) so I got one, and it's even more sensitive than a regular one, and much better to use for painting. Feels very natural. You can brace it against your side like a palette, and it's so light it feels like a little sketchbook.
Very expensive Etch-a-sketch!
I got a red case so I could find it quickly and easily in my generally cluttered studio, but it sure looks like an Etch-a-Sketch!
