Of course, programming can be a very creative occupation – and so can politics. Or you could try a bit of drawing, even if it’s not exactly on paper. A new contender on the market of drawing programs is Pencil, a free and open source program available for multiple platforms. For an early beta version, it’s surprisingly functional, at least for someone like me (I never make drawings, unless it has to do with application design and architecture). My little Wacom tablet required nothing but plugging-in in the USB hub, and off I was. Pencil does animations too – by drawing, of course. Nice one, Pascal!
