My new Grab and Travel Kit (Sketching Kit Mark III)

Well, this is my new Grab and Travel Kit (Sketching Kit Mark III). Or in other words is the Basic Sketching Kit Mark III. Still evolving, for instance the drawing pens.

Oh, how much I love these words and how it sounds…

I reached this new and daily carry kit after making some conclusion for daily sketching.
First going around I need something complete but light. Complete but light means to me at least two waterbrushes, two drawing pens, watercolors and something different like a white pigmented gel pen.

As you can see all art light arsenal is held in place by the forth Journal Bandolier from Emily on Etsy. It is custom made, so it fits four pen/waterbrushes slots plus one micro watercolor kit. I’ve to say that I took this picture one week ago. Now I fitted also my New Lamy Al-Star Black, the limited 2013 Edition. Have I ever said that I love Lamys? 🙂

The cover is a blue vegetal tanned leather. Sturdy enough to go around the world and back home several times. This one is a special color I made only for me. I love this leather sketching kit. It protects and allows with a bit of patience to sketch or doodle or to take notes even standing.
This kind of covers are hand-made by me: you can find on my Etsy BroLeatherWorks shop. Thanks to all fellows sketching artists that believed in my leather projects and covers. Above all friends I’d like to thanks Tina Koyama, that I made a great custom leather cover and Beth that was the first to buy when he knew I was selling these.
They are great artist and have also great blogs to follow! Go!

The main new is also inside the cover. This cover is really modular. And I love that because my mood (and my needs) like every human, can change. I can change and fill with a Moleskine Sketchbook or whatever is pocket up to A6 size.

Inside I stuffed with three cahiers made with watercolor friendly paper. Three different cahiers: two are watercolors friendly, one is Fabriano paper, excellent for Fountain pens writing.But you know, if I’m inspired, I don’t care where I’m sketching… 🙂

I have now endless possibilities to kill the time. Let’s say like that even if I’m having short time in this month…

I’m very happy of this new sketching kit, even if now I carry in my daily bag two of these covers. One is like my pocket note taking holder and this one is my pocket sketching studio.

What do you think about?
Cheers!

  1. What a perfectly portable sketch kit — and everything is unique and handmade! I love it! 🙂
    P.S. I almost got the limited edition matte black Lamy Al-Star. . . . but then I heard that the limited edition Lamy Safari in PINK (from several years ago) is going to be re-released in a few months! :-0 I’m going to wait for that!
