My fella gave me my birthday present last night. The only wrapping paper he had left was Christmas wrap so he wrapped it up in a doona/duvet/eiderdown cover instead *an9ie rolls eyes*. I was forbidden from entering his room during the enrobing process.

After a very long wait, I was finally allowed in and saw a huge wadded up rectangular object.

"Surprise!" he said, "It's a puppy!"

I unfolded layer upon layer of cotton material, and finally unveiled...

A Wacom Intuos 3! 9x12! With an enormous, gigantic, humongous* A4 active drawing area! EEEEEEEEE!!!

"It's so big!" I exclaimed, as I sat on his bed reading the back of the box.

"Could you say that a little louder please?" he said, "I want everyone outside to hear."

After I swatted him, I proceeded to admire my new toy (bl**dy expensive toy, that!) It comes with three pen nibs, and a copy of Corel Painter Essentials that I can't wait to try out. Ooh, hurry up, Friday! I want to know what the next Illustration Friday theme is!

*I'd been using a 4x5 before so forgive my excitement :)
