This keeps you from being too productive, just like people who type and need to look at the keyboard and then at the screen to check if they didn’t misspelled something. Fortunately, things evolved once Touch tablet PCs and laptops hit the market and now artists and graphic designers have a better alternative to a graphic tablet.

It’s that simple. You draw directly on the screen and maybe the biggest advantage is that you can work while walking and standing up. You’re no longer limited to a desk and that’s great.
