Everything that happened at New York Comic-Con 2022

November 9, 2022

When it comes to comics and animation, professionals and amateurs alike know that Wacom products are an essential tool for creativity. That’s why we’ve always reserved space at cons like NYCC, and 2022 was no different!

We partnered with Graphixly to showcase the powerful combo of Clip Studio Paint and Wacom, especially with the new Wacom Cintiq Pro 27! Here’s everything that went down at New York Comic-Con 2022.

Did you know? Every purchase of a One by Wacom, Wacom Intuos, or Wacom One comes with a free trial of Clip Studio Paint Pro, and every purchase of a Wacom Cintiq or Cintiq Pro 27 comes with a free trial of Clip Studio Paint EX!

Incredible demos of Clip Studio Paint + Wacom Cintiq Pro 27

Graphixly artists CJ Han and Kiron Fan stopped by the booth to demonstrate the power of the Cintiq Pro 27 when used with Clip Studio Paint. Check out some of the incredible work they created below!

But is it ever too late to start? ⁣

When did you make the transition to digital? Was it scary? What helped you?⁣
