Sometimes I just can't resist. Customization is a therapeutic activity for me. It's a civilizing endeavor to individualize attention. In high school I painted my graphing calculator. I rearrange my studio on a regular basis. I "steampunked" my BlackBerry. Making art is, for me, a series of in-the-moment decisions to make a never-before-seen object. And it's thrilling for me to figure out 1) what I want 2) what I need 3) how to do it well. So, given my tendencies, it's natural that I made a cover for my shiny new Surface Pro 4.
Note: English is funny...The practice of customization tends to evoke the opposite of customary practices .
