Moleskine part 2

Thanks for all your feedback on my sketchbook post. Here's what happened next, in quick and dirty comic form.

My mom was nice enough to go get me a new sketchbook! Unfortunately she got me the exact one I stopped using because it was too clunky. It will be fine for now, it seems it's about 50 pages lighter than what I remembered which was a nice surprise. Thanks, mommuh!

So this past year I've been using one of these hardbacked Moleskine sketchbooks with the thick yellow pages. I think I bought it online so I could get free shipping on something else. Anyway, I am probably going to blow some minds when I say that I hate this godforsaken thing. One advantage of the moleskine, though, is that the pages are too slippery to really draw in pencil, at least to draw anything you'd like to keep! It's forced me to get drawing in pen again, which I haven't done as much as I should. At any rate, the year is done and the book nearly is too, so here is a highlights reel.

For those of you that are in the know, what I really want is one of the canson (black cover) spiral bounds but with half the pages inside and a thinner binding! I love the paper but I hate carrying them around, they're so bulky. If any of you know where I could get such a thing, please do be in touch!
