It is said that necessity is the mother of invention. I love working on my new Cintiq. Your hand rests right on the screen and all the action takes place under your pen so it has a very traditional feel to it.
I walked into my studio the day after I got my Cintiq and it’s screen was so greasy I thought someone had been frying bacon on it. Hmm… must have been my greasy hands on the screen… what to do? Quit eating chips while I work? Never! …what to do? …what to do?
Well, what I did was what any right thinking American would do in a situation like this, I went to Walmart to look for an answer… and buy another bag of chips. I found a 99 cent jersey glove, cut out all the fingers but one, and walla… a Brother Jones Custom Cintiq Drawing Glove. Works great, is quite elegant and surprisingly is also appropriate for formal wear.
