For someone who paints everywhere, all the time

If you’re the kind of artist who’s always painting on the move with an “all-in-one” graphics tablet like an iPad, you gotta get an iPad case that keeps your Apple Pencil snug too!

For the artist who forgets to charge their devices

Let’s face it, we digital artists have multiple gadgets—constantly glued to them for painting, looking for inspiration, or posting on socials. And hey, sometimes our artist brains forget to plug ’em in until it’s too late.
But fear not! Enter the wireless charger, your new desk buddy. Just put your phone or iPad there when you’re not using it, and say goodbye to those dreaded low battery notifications for good.
