about me: Graphic Designer .. hope to be illustrator See My Work, I primarily use my Surface Products in Tablet Mode with Stylus



Stylus Hack #1

So I like to draw using my surface, I use apps like Sketchbook and programs i.e.. Coreldraw and Illustrator. Always trying to get better at my stylus , had to find a way to thicken my stylus, make it more comfortable to draw with.

My hack: I bought a mechanical pencil with one of those gel grips, took it apart , and used the gel grip on my surface stylus , it fit perfectly. Junk1!


So what is Surface Junkies you ask? As a owner/user of a Surface Book (previous owner of a Surface Pro 2), We are always on the look out for the best use/coolest products/hacks.. so we figured lets make a site.. and here it is..

Who am I? …  Graphic Artist by trade, Illustrator by heart….
