Sketchbook – Wistful

I was playing around with my new sketchbook.  It’s the same size as the smallest Moleskine (3.5 x 5.5″).  It’s from the hand book journal company.  The label on the journal says:  “Contains 128 pages of heavyweight buff drawing paper with a good tooth.  Great for pen & ink, pencil, and markers.  Accepts light watercolor washes without buckling and, of course, it’s 100% acid-free.”  It also has an elastic closure and a clear envelope inside the back cover.  They also have a larger size, again, just like the Moleskine, approximately 5 x 8 inches.  I bought mine from Dick Blick and the price is $6.59.  It is available in black, red, green or blue.  It’s great for sketching and light watercolor…that’s all I have tried so far.  I drew the first sketch with a woodless Koh-I-Noor woodless pencil 4B, also available at Dick Blick. 


These sketches are influenced by Teesha Moore’s website drawings:

    Cool sketches! And thanks for telling about the Dick Blick sketchbooks….that’s a much better price than moleskines!

    I’m still not feeling 100%. Got out today and now I’m feeling bad again!
