When I went to upgrade my phone the other day, I saw you sitting on the shelf, covered in fingerprints and possibly biohazardous germs. Initially, I was unsure if I wanted to own you or anything like you.
Sure, a lot of people I knew had one like you. From what I saw, though, tablets like you did the same function as my phone, only larger and more cumbersome.
How wrong I was to judge you.
I decided to get you, at first, to have something to show off my art at conventions: you had a larger screen than my phone, but were more compact and easier to wield than my laptop. Plus, you didn’t sound like a jet engine in take-off or overheat so much you could bake my knees off.
But then I got some apps on you…
And then I started writing my comic scripts on you….
And then I discovered you were the perfect device to read digital comics on. Comixology, webcomics, it didn’t matter! Your high resolution screen and fast internet connection meant I could read as many of my beloved comics as I wanted.
You have done wonders for my reading and writing time. And I look forward to spending more time with you, you lovely slab of technological wizardry.
Thank you for putting up with my open letter. As a reward, here’s a warm-up sketch I made recently.
Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you on Tuesday.
