I took a digital art class at Georgetown during the fall of my junior year. We worked on a bunch of projects (most of which I really hated…). But the one thing that I really loved was learning new programs and working with the drawing tablet. I have to admit that I really struggled with the tablet for a long time. It’s hard (at least for me) to draw on something flat on a table, but look at a vertical screen to see what’s happening.
But over the course of the semester I got more and more used to it. And then the class was over. AND I WANTED A TABLET. Really, really, really wanted one. Every week (seriously for 18 months now…) I would come up with some cool new way to use it. So many projects! So many blog posts! SO MANY COOL THINGS!!!
(And I would get super envious… one of my least favorite emotions… whenever I saw another blogger utilizing one in a blog post.)
Finally, I was working on a project and broke down because I realized how much time it would save me. Thirty minutes before Best Buy closed and I was in line buying a drawing tablet. I don’t know if I’ve ever been so excited for an electronic. It’s basically a grownup toy.
It didn’t come with a case, but I’ve been toting it along from place to place. Soccer Mom and I set off to make a perfect case for the tablet. (Read: I picked out the fabric and my mom sewed it!)
(Soccer Mom sewing away!)
It’s perfect and I’m just so happy to have the case and the tablet.
Look: I can even digitally sign documents!
Anyone else use a tablet?
