A simple pocket sketching combo.

05 May

A good friend, Joe Pestro, from my early days at Procter & Gamble recently asked, ‘What is your favorite small notebook + pen combo for sketching ideas?’

Easy.

Everytime I leave the house, my right pocket houses a 3.5″ x 5.5″ kraft brown plain Moleskine Cahier and a .05mm Sakura Pigma Micron, in black. Very unobtrusive and always great to jot down quick notes, sketch out and idea, or draw an interesting scene to really get my mind racing.

Ideas need to be gathered, and revisited… they come at the most random places. Carrying a journal, you’ll notice ideas come from the most random sources.

    Adam, you have truly found your best materials for the sketch process! But I need to weigh in here as well. There are SO many materials to try out before a person finds what’s right for them. I personally like a heavier weight paper in my sketchbook as I am prone to more arty activities such as watercolors. (check out a company called HandBooks) And for pens, I like the ones that run with a little water. Uniball Vision Elite. They make ones that don’t leak on airplanes!
