Drawn together

I don't often get to review items that have creative purposes, but I relish the opportunity when it comes along.

For graphic artists and digital media peeps, the tablet is often a more commonplace item than a mouse on the desktop.

While professional tablets and pens can often set you back a few hundred spondoolicks, this enters the arena with a budget price tag so that budding artists and students can get in some practice with their digital drawing.
