Arrival of New Sketchbooks
Finding the perfect sketchbook is as chimerical as finding the perfect planner: you basically need to make your own. Well, now you can: on a recommendation by John Muir Laws, I checked out Komtrak, a quaintly archaic company out of Plainview, New York, which offers completely customizable sketchbooks and notebooks (and, it must be said, planners).
The three sketchbook options I ordered arrived today. The paper options include drawing, multi-surface, arches cold press, a very fine paper for pen and ink work. You can get pastel paper, or just cut up your own and get it punched at Kinko’s or some other such place: the vinyl-covered sketchbooks can be refilled easily.
I tried a couple of the surfaces but will hope to put these books through their paces this weekend.
