    WOW what an awesome contest, thanks so much!!! I’m already a subscriber but I followed you guys on Twitter and FB. Love the articles and everything! I would really love to win the contest… I had a Wacom tablet a few years ago and LOVED it. But the cord that plugged into the back broke (those darn sensitive connections) and I never got around to replacing it. I’ve been masking images and drawing with my mouse ever since… ^_^ Would love to have another Wacom again!!!

    I would jump for joy. 1 for winning an awesome wacom tablet and 2 for winning a wacom tablet as a birthday gift. Then I’d proceed to continue designing pure awesomeness for the world to see. Also I would help others who never worked with a tablet before get familiar with working with one.

    If I win this, I would surely start off designing things off the Wacom Bamboo(duh!!)
    I always wanted to have one… would surely give me a kick … 😀

    If I should win, a Wacom Bamboo Pen Tablet will greatly help me work on improving my sketching abilities and renderings.

  • http://www.elementalfusionstudio.com/ Jen H

    This is a great contest. If I win I plan to use the Bamboo Pen Tablet to make some fun projects in Photoshop and Illustrator.

    I followed on Twitter and Facebook and RT’d the contest!

  • Steve Robillard

    I would use this to help develop my computer drawing abilities. I could always draw well, but it can be difficult to translate that to the computer with a mouse.

  • http://www.alicegraphix.com Jen K

    Well for starters if I won, it would be a nice upgrade in my tablet. I currently am still using a Wacom Graphire3 that I have had for ages. Its not bad but, a new one would be great. I would then probably donate my Graphire3 to another up & coming designer who can’t afford a tablet yet.

    I would use this to create better illustrations and designs than I have been able to with just a clunky mouse!:) Liked on Facebook and RT’d (@caspergrl). Thanks!

  • http://cycyuts.deviantart.com/ Choua Xiong

    This would be my first time using a tablet if I were to win this contest, and I would use it for multiple artistic purpose for myself and others. I would design Logos and illustration for My school clubs, and also use it to create short animation clips. I have always been a traditional artist, but I believe that I am ready to be introduced to the digital world. thank you so much for hosting this contest!

    Choua Xiong Reply:

    As some have already stated before, drawing with a mouse is quite frustrating. Fingers crossed to win the tablet so I can start my REINCARNATION story project!

    Thanks again! ☺☻☺☻☺☻♥

  • http://od3n.net/ od3n

    i would like to have this so i can draw the world and be in my creative world!

  • David J

    Thanks for the opportunity to win! This would be awesome to win, because i am a “traditional” artist who now do my illustrations digitally in vector. This would totally give me the integration of my pen and pencil talent together with my digital skills. I have a lot more to learn and this would be the perfect tool to help me get closer to being a greater designer. Thanks again, for the chance at winning!

  • http://www.cancerscore.blogspot.com Stacy

    If I won this tablet, I would use it during my cancer treatments. I have been fighting melanoma for almost 4 years (since October 15, 2007) I would certainly love carrying this tablet around as opposed to my laptop all the time. I came across your site today while looking for logo designers for my nonprofit organization that I have just begun, and followed you on facebook and twitter. Thanks so much for a great contest and awesome blog!

  • http://www.ink-sketch.com InkSketch

    I would use it along with painter to re-create some of my illustrations with a softer look. Thanks.

  • Red0

    I would like to have one bamboo, having such tablet is really handy attached to laptop on outdoors inspiration hunts.

  • Joy Person

    I would give it to my husband a Marine who has become quite the artist! He loves to draw, paint etc and everyday he amazes me with something else he has learned to draw! He would use the bamboo tablet everyday and even take it with him when he deploys. He would love this!

  • Deepen Dhulla

    I’ve been a subscriber to this site for months now, and when I saw this post and read that there are only 300 RSS subscribers, I was shocked! Why is this site not more popular?!

    Anyway, retweeted and followed and fan-ified and all that jazz.

    I’m definitely not an illustrator, but I like drawing every now and again. I don’t want to put a massive flatbed scanner in my office and take away the space, so this product would be brilliant for me. I take my illustrations straight into PhotoShop/Illustrator to get working on them, and this would simply make the process easier!

  • fodla

    Wow! Thanks for the opportunity !
    If I win, it will be a dream comes true.
    I’m a graphic designer. If I win, I use my tablet every single day for improving my ability to draw.
    I know how Wacom Bamboo Tablet makes every thing easy ( drawing, retouch,etc….).
    And also I know that it makes work more enjoyable.

    All req. done!


  • liladiav

    Congrats on the progress, and I hope the traffic and success continue!


  • kayla

    gGreat contest. Im a graphic design student and i cant afford to buy a tablet right so this will definitely help me improve my skills also i tutor kids so this is would be a great tool for me to use to create lil creative assignments and flash cards for kids.

    I was thinking to buy Wacome Cintiq, but trying a free Bamboo would be awesome. Best of luck to all. Wish me good luck too 😀

  • http://vanroelen.be Stephanie Vanroelen

    I feel like a sixth grader telling my class how my summer went :) If I win the tablet I would finally be able to add a little quirkiness to my designs. Most of my websites are simple and clean, sometimes I would love to add a little self drawn monster. Scans never come out right and drawing with your mouse in photoshop is hell. So in one sentence I would use it to improve my skills and business.

  • azenhort

    Hey There! Great contest! I’d like to be counted in.

    If I would have a tablet I could start draw my concept art. And this should to improve my drawing speed (no more scanning etc…)

  • http://glenn.vanbogaert.me Glenn Van Bogaert

    I’d get started with drawing Illustrations and it would come in handy for doing the wireframes digitally as I’m not a fan of using pen and paper.

    As much as I love this Bamboo Pen Tablet, if I won, I would give it to my brother. He’s been an awesome artist for as long as I can remember… back to when he was 2-3 years old, and I was just a baby. He can handle art in any media he tries, but he has not dabbled with any ‘computer-assisted” art. I would love to win this for him as a surprise. He’s been having some trying times of late, and this would put a big smile on his face. Thank you for the chance!

  • Debra P

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway. I subscribe, follow on twitter @MissingLynxx and Facebook as well.

    I am an artist that needs to update my art into the digital age. I have been drooling over Wacom tablets for a few years and this would be the ultimate. I would sketch and also what I really want to do is design graphic art tees and be able to submit to Threadless and other cool sites like Design By Humans.

  • http://n/a Lisa Grassetti

    I think I would spend a lot of time drawing and designing new pictures to play with. Very cool tablet. I never had something like this. Follow on twitter @ladylisa1 Follow on Facebook and tweeting the contest https://twitter.com/#!/ladylisa1/status/120689404816801792

  • Skyler

    My Husband and I have been working with a web comic idea for over 5 years. Scattered all throughout our tiny apartment you will find scores of legal pad drawings, crumpled cocktail napkins bombarded with late night brainstorming marathons , junk mail reworked as scratch paper overflowing with character dialogue and hordes of piles devoted to this humble idea of ours. In the past year, we have witnessed the rapid expansion of what started out as a fancy-free “someday life dream” has increasingly become the ever-blaring obsession we must put forth. We feel this obsession was created, and is fueled by ; unstable employment, dreams of grandeur involving our over-romanticized notion of the glorious lives of Web Comic creators, and our general , designer fueled neurotic tendencies. We are folk of little income, but plentiful good nature. We wish to mold our humorous anecdotes and highlight of human foibles into something that can be shared and loved by all and feel that winning this amazing, “Gadget-of-Greatness” will help rocket-blast our daydreams of splendor into an “Ever-moving-machine of stupendous Delight!” Please, won’t you quench the thirst of our “Dream Beans” with your “Ham hocks and brown sugar” of nurturing goodness?

    Fun contest guys, of course I’ll retweet been following you on twitter for a while now and love all the great articles you post, it’s a regular part of my morning reading in fact…

  • Gustavo

    Awesome contest. I liked it when you say “Open internationally”.
    That give me hopes to improve my design skills. And prevent some carpal tunnel syndrome lol. Seriusly, this would be really good for me to design typography like the Progress Font of Bamboo.
    Already Following and Like since a while.

  • Riccardo


    If I win the “Wacom Bamboo Pen Tablet” I would create new worlds with a stroke of a pen, barriers will crumble with just my imagination, and no longer confined by words I would express my feelings that will be preserved forever into digital form. With the pen tablet as my third eye I will look into myself and try to unveil my most rooted emotions, and reveal my true essence exploring the deepest levels of my consciousness, my insidious fears will finally be exorcized…all entrapped in the universe of the abstract digital space.

    …Oh, and I will save paper which is always nice and eco-friendly! :)



  • http://twitter.com/cnaes carol

    If I won I would probably spend most of my time fighting it out of my kids hands…LOL
    But i would take it with me everywhere I went to stay connected…I want a tablet so badly!

  • Nora

    I would use the Wacom Bamboo Pen Tablet to further my digital art. I currently draw with Sharpies, mostly, but I would like to advance my art into the digital realms. I would love to design t-shirts and take my sketches from paper to computer with ease! No to mention using a mouse for drawing is so much more difficult than using a pen! I would love the control offered by a pen input tablet!

    What will I do if a win it? I’m an art student, and I’m working on my digital painting skills. Actually I’ve got a Wacoom Bamboo tablet for 5 years, which I used to practice. It’s time to get one, and as I’m using all the money I have to study Art and Graphic in UK (I’m from Italy) I cannot afford a new tablet.
    By the way, good luck to everybody, I’m sure everyone who’s following this blog deserves to win it.
