    "Bravo for now & three cheers for the future!"

    Wow! I'm in love. I'm a professional illustrator who's wasted a lot of time time fighting with both the technology and the confounded support available for â??professionalâ?? tools such as Photoshop, Sketchbook Pro, and Painter, Sketch Pad, etc. All current drawing and painting tools for professional illustrators are afterthoughts on the Mac, i.e. lazy ports. This is an AWESOME, unsung tool for illustrators, especially because itâ??s the truest Mac OS X experience available. The brushes are great! The customization is wonderful, automation is on a professional level, and I foresee even greater things in the future for Acorn! P.S. Pen/Bezier drawing/selection tool please :)
