I had hand surgery in 2000 and it made it very difficult and painful to draw on paper. After getting out of comics and having my dreams dashed I was given a second chance at art with a graphics tablet. I taught myself how to use Illustrator to draw comics. If it wasn't for Wacom and Illustrator I may never have drawn comics again.
