I am currently working on a project for a friend’s wedding. She asked me to do a really intricate design that would definitely take a good chunk of time. Suddenly as I was working last night, I remembered a Christmas present that I go two years ago. It was a Bamboo Wacom digital drawing tablet. The idea was as if I was drawing with pen and paper like normal, but it would instantly be on my computer instead of scanning and tracing with mouse clicks like normal. Well when I first got it, I tested it out a little, but for some reason didn’t understand and became frustrated with how to use it. So unfortunately it sat on the shelf, rarely used until now.
Fast forward to last night, I broke out that little gadget as I faced the daunting task of tracing vines. Two years of constantly working on Adobe Illustrator has obviously taught me something, because I suddenly figured out how to use that little gadget perfectly with this program and traced those vines in no time!! I was so excited I nearly wet myself!
I just had to share this because my mind has now flooded with new ideas thanks to this “new” tool at my disposal. And it seriously felt like Christmas because in that moment it was like I had just gotten it yesterday! And this tool is going to be the key to expanding my products beyond the MINI Cooper theme, and improve my freelance projects as well!
So a huge thanks to my Mom and Dad for getting this wonderful gift for me, and sorry for it taking so long for me to put it to good use!
