Women’s visibility year-round

Women haven’t been treated equally in the arts, entertainment, gaming, media, and tech. Women remain underrepresented and undervalued in studios, museums, galleries, and auction houses. For example, according to the National Endowment of the Arts, nearly half (45.8%) of visual artists in the USA alone are women; and on average, they earn 74¢ for every dollar made by male artists.

We encourage everyone in our community to help raise awareness on these issues and to support women creators beyond the month of March. There are many ways to help, whether purchasing or resharing work from your favorite female artist, highlighting the women in your life who have influenced you, drawing them and celebrating their accomplishments, echoing their voices, and sharing their stories.

For a creative professional team like @parasolisland , efficiency and productivity is key to deliver the best results to their clients 🚀

For years they were using pen tablets and pen displays in combination with high-end monitors, and today they can reduce all of that into one single device: the New Wacom Cintiq Pro.

Thanks to the excellent colour accuracy of the Cintiq Pro 27, this makes a big difference on their workflow.
