Need a new Scanner

Hello all, I am looking for a new scanner for my watercolor/marker artwork. All the information I find only references scanning photographs and I would like to know if there are any that would work best for my type of artwork. I have a budget of around $200 and I use OS X. So does anyone know of a decent scanner that would give me good scans for watercolor?

    Look at the canon scanners on Amazon.

    Like so.

    I use a Mustek ScanExpress 2400 Pro and I love it. The drivers work fine with win7 and I know it comes with OSX drivers, but I don't know if it's been updated for Lion yet or not. (They're a little slow on driver updates)

    It's a little pricey, but it's one of the few reliable 11x17 scanners on the market that doesn't take up half a desk and lets you comfortably scan your arts without having to use photomerge.

    It runs about $250, but they've got the $1200 model for around $150 that does a good job too, although I've heard it doesn't hold up quite as well.
