ONA Astoria Review (via Shotkit.com)

Wacom Cintiq 16 Review (via Shotkit.com)

This is a review I put together for shotkit.com I’ve always been a fan of Wacom tablets, but the models without displays never did it for me. Conversely, the models with displays were too expensive for the kind of use cases I had. I’m not a heavy post-processor so my
