Hi there,

I was wondering how big of a deal it would if I did my gift traditionally instead of digitally? I had originally signed up as a digital artist, but my wacom drivers are acting out of whack. I don't know when they will be fixed. I will try my best to have my gift as a digital drawing, but I don't how much power I have over that.

I would be good to do your gift drawing traditionally if you find that the drivers for your Wacom tablet are out of whack right now.

Let's hope that you find a way to get your tablet drivers fixed as soon as possible. :)
