Today’s guest post comes from the formidable biochemist and arts appreciator, Tahereh Haji. This is the closest thing we’ve had to a review on this blog (though tablets have come up before), and it sure meets its goal: making me want to play with a new toy.
OK, I normally don’t get this excited about new toys, but this review just had to be done. After a good year of hounding from my younger brother about posting my comics online, I succumbed (or found some guts somewhere in the back of my closet). His idea was that I could just scan my sketches and put them up… but I’m a little bit too type-A to be able to handle the weird color, graininess, or sheer size my sketches would have to be to make good scans. Sigh.
So I did a bit of searching (at Future Shop—side note: their guys don’t know anything about artsy stuff. Not that I’d expect them to but, I mean, at least basic knowledge would be appreciated, or a simple “Sorry, I don’t know” would do… ugh). After a few trips and some reading online, I discovered that the Bamboo Fun was my jouet de choix (yes, I made that phrase up).
