INFO: Surface Pro for Creatives

There’s many opportunities to use Surface Pro 2 in creative environments.

GABE, aka MIKE KRAHULIK’S TESTIMONY 
Let’s start off with this video featuring Mike Krahulik, co-creator of famed comic strip Penny Arcade & annual gaming convention, PAX:

Surface Hero Mike Krahulik

Yes, Mike draws Penny Arcade on Surface Pro 2.  Surface Pro 2, with its Wacom Active Digitizer & stylus providing 256 degrees of pressure sensitivity, makes a wonderful creative tool with all the portability of a tablet & the power of a desktop computer.

SURFACE PRO ARTIST BLOG
Another creative in the Los Angeles area has created a comprehensive blog called “Surface Pro Artist” that focuses on the abilities of Surface Pro for creatives using 2D/3D applications. 

Something that you’ll notice is that his blog has evaluated just about every high end Wacom stylus out there usable for the Surface Pro making it a really awesome resource for folks in the media & entertainment industry or the AEC industry space.

CAVe @ AUTODESK UNIVERSITY
This past December 2013, our Surface team talked to hundreds of customers about making Surface Pro 2 even more useful to the creative professional.  People using Autodesk Sketchbook Pro, Fusion 360, AutoCAD, etc… all of them provided input on where Surface Pro 2 should go.

Check out what was written about their time at CAVe.
