MEDL Mobile, a mobile development company, has a new interactive eBook app that aims to teach users how to draw using an iPad.

Learn to Draw Digital Sketchbook, from Walter Foster Publishing, is a step-by-step lesson book on how to draw subjects, like dragons or flowers, using the iPad. The author, who has published numerous art instruction books in print, uses the app to teach readers how to draw digital renderings.

The app includes text and voice instruction, sample lessons, adjustable drawing tools, and the ability to save drawings to iPhoto, as well as share them through e-mail, Facebook and Twitter. The app is available in the App Store for $2.99.
