Tablet sketch

Today I was pleased to use my tablet PC as a way to show off the artwork I had created for a poster. It was very convenient to open Photoshop and then pass around the tablet so people could see the work up close. I did this sketch during that meeting. I found the pen slid around a bit to much for my taste, but perhaps in time I will adjust to that slippery tactile feel. I liked that I could keep adjusting the size of the page I was drawing on. I enlarged the width of the sketch several times. I also found that I tended to erase more often than I usually do.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at

That is very cool! What software are you using to do the sketches?

Thanks Chad,

The software is Sketchbook Pro by Alias. It produced thick to thin lines similar to a good fountain pen, but it will take some getting used to.
