I've been digging the Paper app for the iPad lately. On first download, its simplicity is almost off-putting if you've used other drawing apps like Brushes or Sketchbook Pro. But its simplicity is by design, and the group behind that design, Fifty-Three, says that their goal was to shrink the barrier between you, your ideas, and getting them onto paper (well, so to speak). The limited tool set has been perfected and is such a joy to use that you really do feel like you're drawing on something as close to paper as an iPad screen can be. It's a free download (additional tools are in-app purchases) so check it out if you don't believe me. The app is so fun to use that it's made me want to draw something every day. It's good motivation to try and improve my dismal drawing skills (I can sketch me some UI, but drawing a figure or a face? Not so much), and the other day I did a little typography study.

This falls under the category of "things you never thought would come out of your mouth until you became a parent." My husband was changing Markus one morning when he uttered this gem. I thought it begged to be put into a poster.
