      This is my favorite brand of sketchbook out there.

      I’m currently finishing my first moleskine sketchbook, and I have to say that this has the best brand of paper out there for me.

      Look: The cover consists of a hard cardboard stock that keeps rather destructive keeps such as myself from ripping the outside. The


      paper is of card-stock. The sketchbook comes with a small brochure of the company’s other products and history, which I thought was a nice touch. In the back cover is a memo envelope pocket to keep small sheets of paper.

      Paper: Admittedly, the card stock doesn’t accept graphite pencils all that well, as some ...


      • of my drawings have either smeared, or the intensity of the drawings are kind of muted after a while.

        Otherwise, the paper does very well with acrylics and gouache, and there’s little need to prime the paper. I wouldn’t recommend any hardcore oil painting masterpieces or anything, but the paper handles water based materials

        quite well. Pen and ink works fine too.

        Value: 100 pages for 15 dollars? I say go for it. I’ve been able to make a more interesting sketchbook now that I can combine more materials in one book. I plan on trying the japanese notebook and the watercolor book as well. I’m a happy customer.
