I have to design dot prints at work a lot (very popular for ladies panties). Doesn't bother me though, and I'm always on the lookout for new dot ideas. I decided to keep a dot journal with work stuff, doodles, swipe, etc.
Found a great sketchbook with dots both on the cover AND on the pages. Spot on!
I got it @ Blick's -- cheaper @ Amazon. Comes loaded with "designery" stuff: a ruler, stickers, built-in pockets, plus resource guide.
