Back for a moment…

February 24th, 2008

Well, it’s been nuts around this household lately. For the whole story, peek at the other blog.

I’ve been looking at graphics tables for a long time, but just haven’t bitten the bullet. I hate to spend that kind of money on something I’ll just use from time to time. Wacom has released a new entry tablet though – the Bamboo Fun line. (where do they come up with these names?) My Amazon linkage: Bamboo Fun (Medium) Black Tablet with Pen, Mouse & Graphics Software This one isn’t quite so heavy on the price tag, so I’m thinking I’ll grab one.

I’ve also recently stumbled into Inkscape. Inkscape is an open source Illustrator clone, used for creating SVG images and whatnot.

UPDATE: I ordered the tablet. Should be here 2/28 – 3/4 timeframe. Looking forward to seeing how that helps with Gimp and Inkscape work, since I have a couple of projects going in those areas.
