Drawing: Getting the Most Out of a Sketchbook
A 9” x 12” sketchbook, Strathmore has nice sketchbooks that are good for dry media
Drawing pencils, specifically ones of different hardness, get 2 pencils each of BH, B, 2B and 4B
Erasers, get a soft rubber kneaded eraser and a polymer/plastic eraser. The kneaded erasers are grey, the polymer/plastic ones tend to be white
Black ball-point pens, these don’t need to be fancy, office stores tend have big boxes of the black BIC ones for pretty cheap
Black sharpies, try to get at least a big bold Sharpie and a fine-point one as well–getting a variety of sizes is good for these.
