Here’s what I carry with me in my pockets wherever I go, so I can take any opportunity there is to draw.
The notebook suits me because it handles both pencil and fountain pen beautifully. There’s a little bit of texture to the paper but not too much; just enough to give some character. The paper will even take a little light watercolour in a pinch.
The Liliput is just a gorgeous little pen and small enough to forget about when I don’t need it. It’s fun to use to draw, using an extra-fine nib and Kiri-Same, an ink that shades beautifully and is a lovely gentle grey.
Finally, the Sketch Up is great for when I want to do something a little different. The built in lead pointer is useful and the thick lead means I can’t get too obsessed with detail.
