So the other day I got a surprise birthday present from my friend Andy. I had no idea what it was when I first saw it, but it looked amazing, and a classic Andy-gift: a gadget! I soon discovered that it is called 'Bamboo' and it is a pen graphics tablet. It was such a thoughtful gift because he got it with the intention that I could use it with Photoshop and Illustrator, and it might be handy in my future career!
I've been having loads of fun with it, and I know I'm going to get a lot of use out of it. In the image below I used the pen to make all those swirls you see in the background. It's nothing amazing but hopefully I'll be a pro within a few weeks.
That's about all of my news. Now I'm going to sign off with my own handwriting... Because I can!
