yeah, bitches. (a.k.a. Bobby Flay, what the hell do you think you're doing?)  
So... I signed up to do art for spn_j2_bigbang. And then I claimed a story. And then, in a fit of madness, I claimed another story. Clearly I am even more sleep deprived than normal.

YOU GUYS. I have never made art for a challenge before (that I remember. Oh, whatever, you know my memory is worse than a goldfish.). Watch me make this whole thing as complicated as possible.

In other news, I finally got my last paycheck and freelance check from the NY internship. I am beyond excited, because instead of doing something sensible like paying off my credit card, I'm paying off my credit card and immediately buying a tablet. Tablets are pretty! Tablets help this dofus make the pretty pictures. Moral of the story: Pretty!

For those of you who have/use tablets: which one floats your boat? I'm eyeing the Intuos3 6x8, but I don't know if it's worth it to pay more and invest in the 9x12. Is the extra space essential, or does it just end up being a waste? Or is there another company beside Wacom you swear by? I definitely want something with more umph than the Bamboo, but something like the Cintiq is *way* out of my price range, awesome as it may be.

i got that little 6x8 one and it's a pretty good size, not too big and awkward but enough room to work with. i'd personally recommend it, myself. the side buttons are really useful, too.

I think I'm going with the 6x8. One of the people I babysit for has a huge frickin' tablet that takes up an alarming amount of deskspace. I covet and fear it all at once.

Still- I saw some tablets last time I was at the apple store, so I'm going to go see if I can't get a work discount before I make a final decision.

Re: Thanks!
i guess if maybe you're more used to big art projects or something a bigger one is better? i don't know, but i mostly draw on paper anyway, and i was buying it originally for my laptop (which now does not work but that's okay because i have limited desk space) so smaller was better.

i've never really heard much about apple tablets... are they any good i wonder? O.o
