It's here!!! Before Christmas I got paid for my first proper freelance design job, so decided to upgrade some of my equipment with the earnings. For years now I've been using my Active XP-Pen graphics tablet and it's really showing its age. (not that it was amazing when I got it in the first place). The only name people ever mention for graphics tablets is Wacom. So that's what I went for. My budget wasn't exactly huge so no Cintiq or Intuos for me as yet. Which left me with the Bamboo. I went for the 'pen' as opposed to the 'pen & touch' as to be honest what would I really need a touch pad for. Especially as the touch costs an extra 35 quid on top.
This may sound odd but I'm very impressed with the presentation and packaging. It makes sense that something for art and design should be, well.. arty and designy really.
The product itself is a lovely looking piece of kit with a very satisfying feel to it. Now all I need to do is actually plug it in and install it. That's when the real fun should hopefully start. I'll do some test pics and post them over the next few days.
