Wacom Intuos the Second
Well, after ten-plus years of brainstorming, designing, rethinking, redesigning, lots of writing and a round of colored markers, I threw down the gauntlet and took all my saved pennies and bought a brand new Wacom Intuos Pro in Large.
This Wacom pad is today's version of the 12" x 9" Wacom Intuos pad I bought back in year 2000. I still have the 2000 model and it works just fine as long as you have an old-school 9-pin serial port and Windows XP. Wacom never bothered to support the serial port pad with new drivers when everything went USB.
I've dug up all the old Matt and Austin flash comics, and I've started writing new story-lines for that, and I've drawn up the new look and feel for Emma and the Alien in digital. Just last night and with a couple of hours effort I've sketched up the official new panel of the first Emma and the Alien strip.
