The Joker Takes on the iPad, via @jimlee00 (photos)

DC Comics artist and co-publisher, Jim Lee, has an iPad. And he has put it to very good use, sketching iconic DC characters the Joker and Catwoman.

Think drawing with your finger instead of a stylus is too clunky to produce anything of worth? Check out Lee’s process, from a rough Joker sketch, through to the finished product.

A base sketch of Batman’s evil nemesis.
  

A later update, after the original version was lost (ah, iPad, crashing after less than a week of use).

The final product, in all its insane and creepy glory.

Curious about Catwoman? See the sketch of Batman’s sometime girlfriend here.

Want to see more of Lee’s work? Check out his twitter stream or Deviant Art page.

Are you an iPad fan? Do you prefer working with a stylus on a tablet, or going the old-fashioned pen and paper route?
