Frank's Sketchbook Entry of the Day
| Windows Wacom Woes
June 28, 2018
Microsoft Windows 10 upgraded itself without my permission, then boasted at
how lucky I was for that. Of course the only changes are that it made
things worse, specifically I can't draw with my Wacom tablet (either there
are huge delays when I draw or it scrolls the screen instead because
everything is a tablet computer now, isn't it?). Online suggestions don't
work, so I'm still digging through information trying to figure out how to
make it go. Bother!
So I quickly sketched this one by hand, then
scanned it in, then used the mouse (like some sort of barbarian!) to
use the pen tool to outline it. It took a long time. Then colored
it in Illustrator, then some final touch-ups in Photoshop. All to simply
express my frustration at Windows! And to add a picture.
I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random
sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes
just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly
scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also
am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated
it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of
people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title
provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind
if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search
engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.
Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox
properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't.
I don't care.
If you want to see the image without the annoying blue-lined background
image, just click on the image.
