The conference was hosted by the IAMDA (International Association of Mobile Digital Artists) and took place over a weekend in October. It was an opportunity for developers, artists, and iPhone and iPad enthusiasts to get together and discuss a burgeoning art form. This is a collection of some of the impressive pieces these artists have created on their iPads and iPhones.
