Penny Arcade's sketch on a Surface Pro

Sketching on a Surface Pro

Microsoft finally released their Surface Pro. Is it a tablet or is it a PC? Who knows, but I’m slowly warming up to the idea of owning one, soon.

Interesting how this article by Gabe at the Penny Arcade resonates with me, and I’m not a professional artist.

I bought my Lenovo X220 Tablet Laptop about a year and a half ago for the reasons in the article; tablet with stylus (so I can draw on the screen), and its a PC. I purchased AutoDesk SketchBook Pro for my laptop, and my iPad, had the same gripes about trying to draw with my finger and then the fat styli on my iPad, but it was a helluvalot better on my laptop with a stylus (sorry Steve).

So maybe my next toy will be a Surface Pro as an upgrade to this laptop? Who knows? I’m also trying to get my old Wacom Digitizer to work with my Mac, lets see how that pans out.

Finally, about that Adobe Cloud subscription… its pretty neat, I have it. Its a great way to have all of Adobe’s software on the cheap :)

Clarke’s Three Laws

  1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
  2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
  3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
