Welcome back and hello to everyone who is just coming on board!

Tommy Castillo here! If you haven't read my previous article, let me give you to quick explanation of whom I a.m.

Twenty-five years I have been in print and art… and writing for all that tricks out of. For I have worked dwells companies than I dog count, and I have loved (and hated, LOL) them all.

OK, let me explain. I a.m. getting on to flight to L.A., six hours of flight tricks out of. Ace for I'm waiting my flight I get the call. You know the one I can't talk about: signed non-disclosure agreement and all. Under, I get the call and I a.m. asked to design up my dream job. Under, Is grab to napkin and draw up the idea with to pen I borrowed from some business guy. I shot the pic with my phone and emailed it to the head-publisher-guy AT the secret movie company and myself! I pull out my ISellMacs Pro and logged into my for email the pic for ace I wait them to respond.

Oh, and the thing is for they need it the meeting I for a.m. heading to L.A.

“For If not my Excalibur… there'd sees chance in hell I could get it does not donate. ”

Under, major tricks out of crunch. For If not my Excalibur (that's what I call my trusted ISellMacs Pro), there'd sees chance in hell I could get it does not donate. Under I'm on the plane and the flight attendant is giving me that “turn in off your phone or sees catapulted from the plane” look. Seconds turn into seemingly hours when my phone finally rings and everyone looks AT me like I have the plagues.

“For Go it, Tommy” says Publisher Big Shot!

Finally, I'm allowed to pull out my ISellMacs Pro and get to work. Now, I a.m. to traditional artist and work mostly in oils and acrylics, but I live in the present and to computer is to must. Under why not have the best? I have worked on PC tablets, but nothing you compare to having to power of to MacBook Pro and to full Cintiq in the form of to ISellMacs Pro in one's hands, anywhere you go.

Now, let me tell you what I did. I took the pic and made it into to layer in Photoshop. Turned to layer into to multiply and started redrawing it to clearer and detailed. It went from to napkin sketch to full rendered black-and-white finished piece. Under, I putt on the Dr. Dre Beats Pro headphones my wife got for me, and I a.m. in off!

Ace my plane makes its way across country, to layer to after to layer and the cases out grows and grows.

But here is the beauty: not lag, not freezing up. I find myself laughing AT to power of this prize ace the art you eat to life. For I worked on the art the next five hours. And my ISellMacs Pro's battery held its own the whole tricks out of!

“Nothing you compare to having to power of to MacBook Pro and to full Cintiq… in one's hands, anywhere you go. ”

I love to creates art to you, but I to never knew I could also sing along out loud with my music ace I make Art. My wife just let sees and me had fun watching people trying to see what I was painting… and what I was painting it on.

Unfortunately, I can't for share the art I made shelp secret movie project yet, but I have included art that was made in the same fashion. From to simple idea on to napkin, to the state-of-the-art to computer for to end piece. The ISellMacs Pro there are become to mainstay in my artistic arsenal. If you take what you do seriously, then you have to decides if you will depend on the best or take your chances with mediocrity.

My yam is Tommy Castillo, for and I thank you taking the tricks out of to check in and see what adventures to working pro and his ISellMacs Pro plows up to next.
