One of Jared's illustrations

Jared MacPherson - Winner of the Wacom Tablet SweepstakesTeam SnapVillage is pleased to announce that Jared MacPherson has won the Wacom CINTIQ 21UX Tablet! He was randomly selected from a pool of over 30,000 entries by a random drawing.

Jared is a long-time Wacom fan, having owned an Intuos since he was in art school at the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design. For Jared, “going back to a mouse isn’t an option.”

After graduating in the Spring of 2007, Jared now works as a graphic designer and illustrator at Plumbheavy Design in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. You can see some samples of Jared’s work in this post and on his personal website.

When his new tablet arrives, Jared plans to post a review of it on one of his three blogs.

“I’ll do a comparison to see how it works compared to my older one,” said Jared.

The future looks bright for this young designer. Jared hopes to someday launch an illustration and design business with fellow designer, Jennifer Duong – his original inspiration to begin digital art.

“We’ve been discussing possibilities for a business. It’s still in the beginning stages, but extremely fun and exciting.” said Jared. “It’s great to have people around who inspire and motivate you. One day, when the timing is right, it’d be a great achievement.”

I’m sure this slick new CINTIQ will be a great addition to his blossoming illustration business! Congratulations again, Jared!

P.S. Special thanks to Bittbox for posting a link to the giveaway so Jared (and many others) could learn about it.

You should mention the winner here http://www.snapvillage.com/Promo.aspx?id=wacomcintiq I had no idea who won or that a winner was picked. Congrats Jared.

Congratulations, man! Hope to see more of those killer photos soon 🙂

Makes it less believable that the winner was selected at ‘random’. What would they have done if the winner did not have three blogs? No sponsor promoting review. Nope.

Congrats, Lucky.

12. Team SnapVillage - October 1, 2008

Actually, he was selected at random. We assigned numbers to all valid entries, then used the Integer Generator on random.org to pick the winner. They’ve got a lot of fun, random stuff over there. 🙂

13. Nikko - October 7, 2008

Very cool 🙂 1 in 30,000 are insane odds. Congrats Jarred! Your talent and creativity inspires. Keep it up! I bit the bullet and bought a 12UX.

14. Spencer MacPherson - October 10, 2008

whoa, my last name is MacPherson… weird.


15. Jorge Lassus - December 5, 2008

Could someone tell me what drawing tablet should I buy? I need it only to draw live caricatures ans do some cartooning at home, and I am not sure if I should buy the Wacom Cintiq or just the Wacom Intuos.
Or is there something else I can use?
I appreciate any comments.
