Last month my fiance took a three week work trip. The day before he was to depart, I sketched out a black and white tiger (mouth wide with teeth snarling, and brows furrowed) and presented it to him. He was pretty impressed until I told him I sketched it because that was how I felt about him leaving me for so long. He let out a long laugh, and empathetically gave my neck a nuzzle telling me how much he was going to miss me. To ease the blow, he also gave me a gift......a new Apple ipad! "There goes all my attention!" he said as he shook his head at me and laughed at my delight. The work trip is over now, and oh how correct he was!
He doesn't even know how organized he's helped me to become! Now I can manage this site from virtually anywhere, keep all my client contact information with me, edit digital pieces and constantly check paypal for new orders, all with just one touch! I know I could have gotten a blackberry or something similar but that small screen would have done me no good- PLUS I can dabble at my piano app. I don't have to lug around a pictorial for potential buyers to thumb through anymore either, now i can show them a much more vivid example of my style by flipping through my ipad photos. And the greatest part is that when I'm in the frozen food section at the grocery store and get a sudden burst of creativity, I can pull out my trusty ipad, do a quick sketch (with color!) and not worry about losing the idea later!
How grand is that?
