Anyway, when someone complains about the Adobe subscription model, let them know there is an alternative, but you gotta be good.
I'll echo Dave's comment. So many stunning images, and from me experience of wrestling with Office shapes and objects, he is as much a hero as an artist. He even says it is easier than MS Paint! Go figure. Actually, I may have learned something, because he says that Excel is more flexible than Word when it comes to this stuff, and my 'wrestling' comment above, was in relation to Word.
Not nearly in the same league as that beautiful picture, but back when I was designing 19 inch rack layouts for installation projects, I had an Excel template that let me put in things to scale--1RU, 2RU etc. I even had some graphics to represent some common equipment items.
I also used Excel for creating cable schedules...and for working out the bill at the end!
Like I always say, it's not the tool, it's the person using it .
True, but I would not want to mow the lawn with nail clippers.
Wow. That's impressive. I agree the artist would need to be good. I've seen people try to use Excel to mock up websites. That was not pretty on a number of levels.
Speaking of artists being able to master a tool... have you seen the graphic novel that was recently released by an artist who used Microsoft Paint? Microsoft (MSFT) Paint was solely used to create a stunning 1980's-inspired graphic novel — Quartz
