So here's what happened : my tablet fell down a staircase two weeks ago, which broke the screen and made it impossible to draw on it. As a freelance artist I have no insurance or whatever. I've been trying to find a cheap way to repair it, but wasn't successful at all, since the screens for this model are out of stock in Canada.

I've been using friends' computers and tablets since then (thanks G., F. and S.!) but I really can't keep doing this forever.

So I'm turning to you to help me buy a new device. To keep up with all my ongoing projects relating to trans and gender issues, I usually spend around 10 hours a day drawing, so this is crucial for my production.

Thank you so much. <3 I'll try to give it back in as many ways as possible.

Alors voilà ce qui s'est passé : ma tablette graphique est tombée en bas d'un escalier, ce qui a endommagé l'écran et rendu impossible la possibilité de dessiner dessus. En tant qu'artiste indépendance, je n'ai aucune assurance ou quoi que ce soit. J'ai tenté de la réparer de n'importe quelle manière, sans succès, puisque les écrans de cette marque semblent être en rupture de stock au Canada. 

J'ai utilisé des ordinateurs et des tablettes d'ami-e-s depuis deux semaines (merci G., F. et S.!) mais je ne peux définitivement pas continuer comme ça ad nauseam.

Alors je me tourne vers vous pour m'aider à me procurer une nouvelle tablette. Afin de garder le rythme de mes divers projets relatifs aux enjeux trans, je passe environ 10h par jour à dessiner, alors il est crucial d'avoir cet équipement pour ma production.

Merci infiniment <3 Je tenterai de redonner aux communautés de mon mieux.

This probably isn't the appropriate place to answer your question Jennifer, but since Sophie has reached her target for her graphics tablet, I hope she won't mind! Many professional artist use Photoshop, but it's expensive as you have to take out a subscription from Adobe. I always found an excellent drawing and painting package to be Corel Painter. It's extremely sophisticated and will do everything an illustrator could want.

My son has started drawing and has outgrown his children's painting program. What program do you use?
