A Review of the 53 Pen and Rebirth of My Art Career

The folks at Paper recently made a great stylus for the iPad that not only works with their app, but others on iPad like Photoshop, and it's super sick. I'm using it to clown up all my photos from now on.

A Review of the 53 Pen and Rebirth of My Art Career

Posted by Rob Meronek 9 years ago on January 3rd, 2014

I posted a while back about Mark Gonzales' YouTube Channel and the amazing weird videos he posts there. He uses the Paper app for iPad from what I can tell. I use the same one when I pretend I'm an artist and not a nerd. Well, the folks at Paper recently made a great stylus for the iPad that not only works with their app, but others on iPad like Photoshop. Brittany got me the 53 Pen for Christmas and after getting to use it, I think I'm going to use it to clown up every single photo I take from now on.

From the look and feel of it to the packaging to how easy it is to connect it by simply pressing it onto the screen in the Paper App, it's a product that's buttoned up from its tech guts to pretty presentation.

My art career is hereby reborn and I am laying a few of my initial masterpieces at your feet for your retina pleasure. You're welcome.

I had to take James Craig and his kung fu 360 flips, turn him sideways, and throw a black belt on him. How appropriate that this is in China. Heeeeyaaaaa!!!!! Check the original here.

Why stop at my own photos with this new found talent? I headed straight to Burnout's stockpile and picked a few to doll up. On the recent Thrasher King of the Road trip, the Chocolate Skateboards crew witness Spidey wall ride.

Cory Kennedy Naked With the Fifty Three Pen

Did you see that wallride backside flip out sequence on Burnout? Damn, Cory Kennedy definitely sold his soul to get that good at skateboarding or committed the first sin Adam and Eve style or something like that. I don't know my religious and superstitious stories too well, but I do know there was a naked dude who ate an apple from a tree and that's how the world started.

With Brittany's hair and mine combined, this is how I'd imagine my son might look in a couple decades.
