Awaiting word from Microsoft support concerning my once again broken Surface Pro 3. Luckily I am still able to use the device for working while attached to this Cintiq. Fun fact- my cintiq is the first thing I purchased when I started working -- it took me a very long time to save up for it, and it has been a valuable tool in my arsenal since!
Still awaiting funds to purchase my document camera, but until then, my background work and tree studies continue in my sketchbooks.
Repeatedly formatting my machine when it gets annoying has been an excellent way to practice backing up tools and settings for the large number of apps I use daily. I still wish a lot of these art apps were Windows Store apps -- having them associated with my account and taken care of by the store would make it so much faster and easier to install and configure all my favorite apps. The format has my machine performing better than ever, to the point where I've had to adjust to the faster capture of my drawings in Illustrator!
