A Birthday Present from Jason

Jason sent me an email last week inquiring about my knowledge of Wacom technology, as I use my Wacom tablet to do all my digital paintings, and the comic. He asked me for recommendations because he was scoping out tablets. Little did I know that he was secretly trying to figure out what accessories I needed for my tablet! So a package arrives yesterday (I thought it was my new business cards), and here's what's in the package:

It's a 6D art pen. It works like a paintbrush in Corel Painter and Photoshop. The chisel-tip registers the following movement: tilt side-to-side, tilt front-to-back, pressure variation, and 360 degree barrel rotation. HOO-WEEE! I've got the day off so I'm going to take it on it's maiden voyage. I'm sure the result will be posted here by tonight.

Wow. That looks amazing. Is that the cool Jason with the cute dog named Kramer? If so, I always liked him a lot.

Amory Abbott said...

Yes, the one and only Jason Higgs, who I now must also refer to as "the baddest dude I know."

Mr Higgs said...

That's right you always liked me alot! Cause I am a total Bad A! And because Amory and I used to serenade various rap songs to you all the time. Ske ske ske ske!

Anyway enjoy your early B-Day present buddies! May you make as fine of art as you have always.

Rock on.
