An Anniversary Gift And A Little History

💀 Posted On June 11, 2020   |   No Comments on An Anniversary Gift And A Little History

Many probably don’t know this but there has never been a traditional piece of original Deadlys artwork ever created. The series as you know it was born on the day I got my first Wacom Cintiq art tablet. It took a little while to get the hang of drawing on a screen, but after a few months I was hooked and it has drastically changed the way I produce all of my art (for the better!).

For the last 10 years, I have been drawing The Deadlys™ on that little 12″ tablet. Every comic strip, every graphic novel, t-shirt design, etc. It has been an amazing little workhorse and still works to this day.

Why am I telling you all of this, you ask? Well, this week I decided to give myself an anniversary gift of sorts. A reward for 10 years of Deadlys work through thick and thin. Today I just installed my new Wacom Cintiq Pro 24 and I am one happy camper!

Aside from the obvious larger screen, I also got an arm which allows me to draw in a much more comfortable position instead of hunched over the small table I had my 12″ tablet sitting on. This has really got me excited again because, now that I hopefully won’t have to deal with neck and back pain, I can stay at the table more and maybe get some more Deadlys content out the door.

Thanks for sticking with me and The Deadlys™ this past decade. It’s been so much fun seeing people fall in love with these characters. Look for more great stories in the near future!
