Wacom now offering promotional discounts to the tattoo community!
In the days leading up to the big Guy Aitchison / Russ Abbott collaborative event, Evolution, we've established a partnership with the technology company Wacom. Many of us have long been using Wacom tablets for doing art and other activities at our computers, and a few of us in the tattoo industry have gone so far as to purchase one of their deluxe Cintiq tablets, which gives you a large touchscreen that you can draw on directly with a stylus. So it's exciting news that Wacom has developed a smaller and more portable version of this tablet, known as the Cintiq Companion, which can be disconnected from your computer and used on the fly anywhere. Needless to say, Russ and I are excited to give these new tablets a spin around the block this coming week.
Wacom has offered us two of the new Cintiq Companion tablets to give away as raffle prizes to anyone purchasing tickets to the collaborative webinar. If you have already purchased tickets, your name has already been entered in the raffle, and we will be drawing names on the 22nd and 23rd of this month to announce the two winners. On the 22nd, you can view the free all-day webcast at www.TattooNOWtv.com, where you can submit your questions for Russ and I to answer. We will be demonstrating the tablets, along with the new Abbott Color wheel. Then, on the 23rd, comes the paid part of the webinar, where we will be going deep into technical detail as we work on an epic leg sleeve project. Tickets are available now at tattooeducation.com, and purchasing a ticket will automatically enter your name in the raffle.
In addition, Wacom is offering a promotional code for the tattoo community for a limited time. If you purchase one of their Companion tablets through the wacom.com e-store you can save $50, or $100 off one of their full size Cintiq tablets... Model DTHA1300L is only $999 with the promotional code, which is a great deal for a tablet this versatile. Just enter promotional code TATTOO_GRWEB during checkout and the discount will automatically be applied toward your purchase. This code is valid for two weeks only, so take advantage now!
Thanks, and I'll keep you posted!
The Aitchison/Abbott team webinar experience!
As Russ Abbott and I gear up for our big collaborative project later this month on the 22-23rd, we've been talking a bit about how to approach the design process. Since both of us have extensive experience working digitally, no doubt a lot of it will happen using digital media, including out tablets made by Wacom, who are helping sponsor the event. We'll be trying out a new tablet product that they carry, the Cintiq Companion, which is a touchscreen tablet where you use a stylus to draw directly on the screen. It can be worked in conjunction with your computer, or as a stand-alone portable device with its own suite of on board software. So needless to say we are both pretty psyched to try it out.
Wacom has also offered one of the new tablets as an enticement for anyone buying tickets to the paid portion of the webinar on the 23rd, when we will be talking about all the technical aspects of what we are doing. We'll do a random drawing from the names of everyone attending either in person or online, and announce the winner of the tablet that day. And the seminar itself promises to be pretty exciting: it's an epic project where we will be combining the best aspects of what we both do. We also will be demonstrating the Abbott Color Wheel, a new tool that can help you to take your color work to the next level. You can read more about the seminar at the Tattoo Education online store.
Last but not least, I've got another painting from the Organica collection listed on eBay. This one is 8x10", signed and framed, and would look perfect in your workstation art collection. The auction is in its last day, so now is your chance to own a part of this published collection.
Thanks, and we'll be in touch soon!
