Lifeswap gets high tech….Meet Wacom

This impressive piece of equipment is called a wacom tablet. It is Steffen's new baby. (Actually, it belongs to a good friend of his who has had a real baby, so it's kind of a temporary foster dad situation.)

Anyway, it allows him to draw directly onto the screen with a special pen (that's not a biro) to create more nuanced images.

Steffen and Wacom have a close bond. Steffen says using the tablet feels just like drawing on paper, and I have noticed that the characters who have emerged since he's been using it, like Hannes' Hausschuh wearing punk brother (pictured) have a special presence and sense of personality. Episode three will be quite something, I think...
