    The PenMoto, Reborn

    We covered the PenMoto when it was still a gleam in its creator’s eye and, sadly, it was never completed as the designer, Kelvin Geis, cancelled it on Kickstarter. Well, friends, the PenMoto is back and it’s better than ever. The new project involves the same pen mount product – a magnet holds your Wacom or drawing pen in place so you can use the keyboard and then flip it… Read More

    There are two brands serious graphics artists will probably never abandon: Apple and Wacom. Anyone who does any real digital designing knows that a Wacom tablet is as necessary to them as paint brushes are to a traditional artist.
