Hello everyone. Just felt like writing a new journal since my last post was from May.
I guess I'll get right to it.
Sadly, yesterday morning my Wacom Bamboo tablet ascended to meet The Great Tablet in the sky. A shortage in the USB cord (that has existed for about a year) finally gave out and started to shoot sparks and overheat so badly that smoke began to come from the wires in the opening. It was then that I knew that Bambi (the name I affectionately gave my tablet just now as I was writing this sentence) wouldn't be waking up this time.
Hopefully I'll have the funds to get a new tablet within the next couple of months, but either way I'll be using this time to focus exclusively on traditional drawing. I suppose it was time for an upgrade anyways, and as I was looking through several tablet options on Amazon, I realized that I've been selling myself a bit short in the department of actual tablet sizes. The one I was using had a fairly small active area with 4.9 x 3.4 inches
compared to other reasonably priced Wacom drawing tablets that go up to 8.5 x 5.4 inches
. I'm also considering shooting for an Intuos, (not the crazy expensive, arm, leg, and kidney costing models) but I'll make that decision when the time comes.

I suppose in the mean time I can finally put this scanner/printer I blew almost 200 bucks on to use.
