If offered a reasonable amount of money, would you sell your sketchbook?

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.

RIP Bambi

You will be missed until I get my new and much better tablet.

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