For the past five years I had a tottery old T60 IBM ThinkPad notebook. It ran Debian well enough to suit my humble needs, but after having to glue it together several times, it seemed a good idea to get a new notebook for myself for graduation.
I randomly stumbled upon this blog post some time ago:
surfaceproartist.com/blog/2016…

Turns out, there's a tablet PC with reasonable specs and an even more reasonable pricing that is (by accident; it's not an official feature) compatible with the WACOM active pen driver and thus with a range of active pens. A Cintiq-like tablet for third of the price? And a usable notebook at the same time? Sounded almost too good to be true. But I got the Inspiron, ordered a Dell active pen from eBay and - it really works like a decent drawing tablet.

While I do have some issues with the machine (glossy reflective display, widescreen, Windows 10), this opens a whole new world of possibilities for me. I never was much of a digital artist because I never had the necessary gear. So far, I got the pen to work well with SAI, but I am eager to try other software too, eventually.
Maybe this will lead to more regular art output from me? Time will tell.

I don't know what I'm supposed to be.
I used to play Go and draw a webcomic about it, got a graphic design degree in Vienna and designed postage stamps along with taking on some freelance illustration jobs here and there... only to ditch everything to become a genetic engineer instead. Now, I live in Prague, have a masters degree in molecular genetics, and create transgenic mice instead of postage stamps. I'm also co-founder and an active member of the Prague hackerspace Brmlab, where I continue to dabble in electronics and high voltage - my lifelong obsession.
In between all that I continue to draw, write, and listen in on conversations between imaginary people living in my head.

HEY!!! Have you seen the Netflix series "Stranger Things"?? I'm only two episodes in, but there's a little girl who seems to have electric powers caused by some evil experimentation and she was just shouting "Papa!!" as her father figure who looks just like Eric has her locked up somewhere. 

I THINK NETFLIX STOLE YOUR IDEAS!!!! :XD:

I hope you enjoy it! I think it ended up being much more in the realm of fantasy and less science-based than your story :P
