But is it art?

Raz from Psychonauts!The connection between holding a stylus and holding a pencil is a fairly obvious one, though many would agree that the latter is more often involved with unpleasant things such as writing essays, ticking boxes in a Reader's Digest survey and, of course, stabbing people in the eye. To be fair, I did use my stylus for stabbing once, but I really can't be held responsible for my actions during a heated Mario Kart DS session. Perhaps if there was some game that allowed me to release my frustrations through artistic expression, some people wouldn't regret using homing shells so much.

Apparently, there is one such a game - and we all have it. It's called PictoChat. The NDSart gallery provides a virtual wall to hang many of the masterpieces that have been created by avid touch screen artists. Instead of squeezing a sketch onto a single Pictochat screen, the pictures are segmented across the dual screens, photographed and then combined again. The work on display here is very impressive and could certainly be expanded by an online-capable PictoChat program that could allow you to save and send your drawings to friends. That is, provided they aren't still mad at you for attacking them with a stylus.

Looks as if the site is down to become something "completely different"... anyone know what the completely different thing is?

I've often thought pictochat could be extremely cool if the pics could be sent to a server somewhere (via wifi, of course)... but I'm not exactly holding my breath.
