As an experiment, I drew this Thing page in one of those 11 x 14 black hardcoversketchbooks. My goal was to be able to draw comic pages in a form that I could carry around with me-kind of a mobile studio.
I've messed with this before with mixed results.
I thought this page came out okay, but I didn't like the paper in the book. The paper is too rough, soft and thick. I prefer dawing on paper harder and thinner.
I like drawing with a 2H and that tears up the soft paper.
Still I liked drawing in the book and a Starthmore has really good paper. I have a big summer project coming up and i liked drawing in the hardback book, so I guess I need to pick up a new book!
