AquaSketch Brings Out the Inner Wyland

As if painting itself weren’t enough of a challenging avocation, marine artist Mark Hagan is looking to take it one step further.

At the DEMA Show in Las Vegas this week, Hagan introduced the forearm-mounted “aquaSketch,” which allows divers to make notes while underwater on a waterproof, plastic mylar that can be scrolled up as the writing area gets filled.

Hagan said several military officials had seen his aquaSketch drawing palette that enables divers to draw their surroundings underwater, and asked him if he could make a wrist-mounted one.

The wrist-mounted aquaSketch is in production, and should be available by November, according to Hagan.
