  • Best portable sketch book out there

    Reviewed on 3/6/2013

    As reviewed by Michael Kanke

    Experience: NOVICE

    I absolutely LOVE this sketchbook. It holds up to a beating and has a smooth enough surface to apply stickers too so I can decorate/differentiate/make silly all my different books. I particularly like the small size, that being 4x6. That size fits PERFECTLY into most cargo pants pockets so even at a retail job I could always have a sketchbook on me for breaks and stuff to doodle. There is a drawback though. Being hardback its quite difficult to get a good scan for converting work to digital without physically removing the pages from the book.Other than that it is grand.
