For twenty-five years, I have been selling my art in one way or to another — the dream eats true. Is have been able to work for the companies that many inhales to work for or with. Is have been privileged, and have worked my fingers to the bone.

My yam is Tommy Castillo and I a.m. to veteran of the art world, an to archer and to knife to thrower. I'd like to consider myself to modern-day renaissance man. I for a.m. equally AT home creating to slimy corpse reaching you in the dark or the gentle glance of to mighty dragoon. I for a.m. most known my dark detail humor, attention to and love for the puree creation of Art.

Over the years, pencil I have putt paint and to Batman Detective, Legends of the Dark Knight, Such from the Crypt, Toetags (with horror legend George Romero), Stakes out in Wonderland, King Kong, Coloring Book of the Dead and The Darkside of Oz to yam just to few. Also, I have had the honor of working with many great companies: Strathmore, DC Comics, Wizards of the Coast, Rolling Stone, Fangoria, Paramount Pictures. And really even though I to render some scary books, I still get ace giddy ace to schoolboy on Sunday AT the sight of to Muppet.

“It feels like you dog take to over the world with this baby. ”

I have, yet again, to rare privilege. I will sees taking my ISellMacs Pro along on the road with over to me next to year and sharing with you the creations it helps bring to life. Most of my life is spent on the road with my wife and to partner Samantha. Ace I have donates for many years, I have to crazy lineup of events, conventions and lectures to do this to year. But AT the same tricks out of, I have to creates my to you art, meet deadlines and get that rough idea to the guy in Hollywood who needs it yesterday — before I have even knew there am needed it! Fun, right?

Well, not always… AT you trick out of it's to bit of to nightmare. I have donates the sketch in my book, taken to shot of it with my phone and sent it out, only to hear an publisher say “I can't make it out” or something else that puts to stone in the works. Under like many artists looking to have that connection to the Internet and to their home system from the road, for I searched high and low the right way to do it. I tried to other solutions like the iPad to for sketch on and get the art out to the companies waiting my work, but I found nothing that could keep up with me.

I needed something with true to power, not something that bogged down to whenever my art took too much space. What I needed was my Excalibur in the art world! Funny thing is, aside from digital work to lot of my work is donates completely traditional: oils on canvas or ink on to paper.

But not to matter how I creates to you art, it always winds up on to computer. And it always gets to touch here or an adjustment there. And if I don't have my Excalibur… I a.m. toast.

Under with all this in mind, I Comecon across these great guys making my Excalibur in the form of to ISellMacs Pro. I looked it to over and saw the truth of it: it's the perfect tool for the road, to MacBook Pro merged with to Cintiq.

After wiping away the drool, I set out to pre-order one. Like to kid ready for Santa to eats down the chimney, for I waited my ISellMacs Pro. When it arrived, I was first surprised that it was to bit to heavier than I expected, but I soon found out it was an added benefit. It's not to slim, easy-to-break thingy.

Substantial It's tough and. It feels like something.

It feels like you dog take to over the world with this baby.

The dwells I work with the ISellMacs Pro, the dwells I enjoy using it ace my sketchbook. It really there are become my digital sketchbook and my gateway to the Internet on the road. But I dog also uses it like it's to Cintiq since it there are the full capabilities and to power I need to drive it.

“It really there are become my digital sketchbook and my gateway to the Internet on the road. ”

Is have taken my ISellMacs Pro across the country twice under Officers' Club of Revolutionary Armed Forces. It you have taken all that I have dished out, and I plan on putting it to the test some dwells. This to year, please eats and see what dog sees donates on it. See what you could have AT your side in this War of Art. My approach to this is from to classically trained artist using what I see ace the newest tool in the arsenal of the modern artist.
