I am not much of an illustrator. I mean, I can illustrate things, (after all, my art degree is with a concentration in illustration) but I’m not quite as well-versed as these young whipper-snappers these days with their manga and their drawings of big-chested “girls” wearing dead things on their heads, but I do want to see if I can make this WACOM Intuos 5 Touch work for me.
I’ve been reading reviews and watching you-tube videos and basically telling myself that everything “those artists” were creating, I could create, as well.
And, being an instant gratification kind of person, and having no patience to wait for the bally thing to come in the mail, I bought it in an actual brick and mortar store (I know, right: radical!)
If I’d ordered it online, I would have to have someone standing here at my door during the work day, waiting for the mail, UPS or FedEx person to arrive because, for some strange reason, they all love leaving things on my step. And even though no one has ever actually stolen anything off my step, knowing my luck, this would be the very first thing that they take.
So, I chose Staples (not that I had much choice as it’s the only place that carries it locally… and the only place where the technology people don’t talk to me as if I just fell off the turnip truck).
So, I am now pretty much set. I’m going to test it out for a few days and if I don’t: A) grow frustrated with it or B) break it, I’ll come back with a review.
