The artist Emil

With its bars and cinemas, London's Leicester Square is a popular destination for tourists, who'll often stop to have portraits and caricatures drawn. On one summer day, the artist Emil (in the white shirt) swaps his notebook and charcoal for a tablet PC.

On this occasion, rather than sending tourists on their way clutching their caricature on paper, Emil plans to send out the artwork by e-mail and wireless connection. His tablet PC is from Motion Computing.
