Let's do a meeting just on the "Magic of Wacom tablets." A lot of people were interested at our last meeting, so let's do it.

We'll have a Wacom rep on hand to share some of the latest products and give you ample time to test them for yourself.

Our good friends Jesus Ramirez (Photoshop Training Channel)  and Carlos Garro  (Carlos on YouTube) will be back to share their best tips for working with Wacom and there may even be a few Photoshop/Lightroom/Illustrator tips along the way ... in fact, I guarantee it!
