iPhone Stylus + Sketchbook App

I discovered this great video today on how to make a simple iPhone/iPad stylus from Make Magazine. Being an art nerd I have been wanting to make one of these for a while in order to be able to actually draw using some of the great apps available (and to see how useful it would be to use the iPad as a drawing surface).

My stylus came out looking something like his and works great. I've been using it with AutoDesk's Sketchbook Mobile app which is wonderful. Its brushes simulate touch-sensitive operation and as you can see below, its line tracking gives you very natural curves and human lines. I'm going to have fun with this.
