Step Ahead

As I reported Yesterday the 'Inkling' now seems to be out and early reports are that, its not good. However it maybe a matter of getting used to it and many just dont like to give things a chance. For Example the first time I sat down in front of a Mac computer to learn Adobe Illustrator I hated it with a passion. But after I got accustomed it felt like second nature. Change is hard to begin with but sometimes it works out.

Digital ink

Could this be the Future of Drawing as we know it? Someone Pointed this out to me recently the 'Inkling' by Wacom. It's due out sometime in 'Mid-October' of this year. Selling For about $200 I wish I could describe how this works but heres the Instructional video that goes along with it. Its worth your time.
I can't tell you how excited I am by this product, One example is my comic strip 'Logopolis' I have heaps of cartoons still unscanned or incomplete. This is because its quite tedious to scan for just one cartoon and my scanner is the crappiest thing on the Planet. It doesnt scan true Black&White and so its left with some opacity problems that makes the image once colored a horrible mess I like complete Black linework. One wonders if this would prevent that. Another is that you dont need to be at home to use it, example I go out alot with my sketchpad with one of these attached I can draw while out, go home and upload what I've done for the day in Vector or Bitmap.

It all sounds to Good to be True....... It probably is, We'll See.

Fancy Stamp

More art from the soon to be released MMP book. I was thinking of sticking this on a Tee-Shirt.
