Crowdfund Project of the Day: BrushKnob by Wataru Kami

brushknob02

This one may excite all you digital illustrators out there! BrushKnob is a device designed to make the creation of your digital artwork more intuitive. Developed while working as a concept artist at a production company in Tokyo, Wataru Kami’s invention is simple to use and incredibly streamlined. With only two functions — a knob to control brush size and a switch to transition between the brush and eraser tools — it operates like an extra keyboard and can be used with any application (not just Photoshop) using the same keyboard shortcuts assigned.

More images and information about how to support Kami’s project below!
