If you have a younger sibbling interested in game art, or you are a youngster yourself and cant afford a wacom, just email me me poop at poopinmymouth dot com, tell me a bit about you, and preferably send me 5-10 bux over paypal to cover the shipping costs. they are usb, 9x12 check out www.aiptek.com
