I inherited my first graphic tablet in 2010 from my boyfriend of that time because he had accidentally dropped the USB plug into a bowl of tomato soup and it wouldn’t work anymore for a while. The rubber on the pen pretty much dissolved and the nib hadn’t been changed for years even before that. But it was the only thing I had besides a mouse and I loved it to bits.
That is also why time and time again I just would not be able to bring myself to upgrade - what I had was fine, after all, and I didn’t feel like newer hardware would mean for better artwork.
I still don’t think it does but after having a Companion on my desk now… I can at least definitely say THIS. IS. FUN. AHHH ♥
