A thousand and then some

Every so often I collect all of the artwork that I've done on my tablet and print it up in a book. That way I have a hard copy to put on my shelf next to my other sketchbooks. I'm just shy of hitting the 1,000 mark on total "pages" since I bought my tablet pc so I thought it was a good time to start putting it together. I actually have well more than the number stated, but that's the number of pages that have been saved to the folder on my hard drive called "Sketchbook". It's not counting all the other files I've done that have been worthy enough to have actual titles bestowed upon them. Not like files such as poor ol' Image926.tif. Oh, what fun that one was, but just not fun enough to get a fancy name. But fancy or not, they all go in and then I can back 'em up to make more room on my drive for the next thousand-and-then-some.

I'm curious what's going to happen when I reach 1,000. Will it restart at 001? Or will it add a one to the front? So many unanswered questions.

Below is the cover I did for the book. Since Ellie and her peeps feature largely in the pages it's only fitting they be on the cover.

UPDATE: Upon reaching 1,000 pages the file automatically gets named Image1000.tif. Another mystery solved!
