Hello Citizens of the Blogosphere!
I love drawing whenever and wherever. This is why I value sketchbooks so much. I just pop them in my bag and start drawing whenever inspiration strikes.
Today’s blog post is sort of a quasi-review of my latest sketchbook acquisition.
The Sketchbook: Open Bound Sketchbook by Piccadilly
Purchased At: Barnes and Noble
Things I love about this sketchbook…
- The cover is plain, making it a perfect base for illustrations.
- The paper is nice and thick which allows it to stand up to permanent marker and ink.
- The binding is awesome. The notebook easily lays flat while you are drawing.
- I bought the medium size, which fits perfectly in most of my bags or purses.
- At under $10, it is very affordable.
Things I don’t love about this sketchbook…
- Since the notebook cover is made of thick craft paper, it is prone to staining and general wear.
- Ripping out pages reduces the integrity (and overall strength of the binding) of the notebook.
- The paper is very absorptive, so it eats up ink.
Overall, I am very pleased with this notebook, and I am thinking of buying the larger size… just because.
Here are a few of the sketches I created in my new notebook.
That’s all for now.
