A while back, we got the good people at Wacom to send us one of their fancy new Inkling pens to do a demo. You remember the Inkling right? It tore up people’s twitter feeds for about 24 hours. I figured I should get someone who knows their digital tools to put it through its paces, so I sent it off to indie animator Nick Cross. What I got back was a colourful commentary by not just Nick, but a trio of talented artists: Nick, Marlo Meekins, and Rex Hackelberg.

Spoiler warning: the verdict is a B+. Nick thought it was an ok gadget, but not a serious tool, particularly for animators. Rex liked it just fine and was gently ridiculed by Nick. Marlo was enraged.
