This is the perfect book for people that travel often. It's cute and small and I'm very satisfied with the product.

LOVE. IT. I ordered this book for my husband as he loves to sketch his ideas down. This Lil Sketchy is perfect! The size and quality are great and amount of paper is generous! It's also simply fun!! As an artist myself, I would happily order from this seller over and over again. Thank you so much and can't wait for him to open at Christmas.

The best things in life are a 'lil sketchy....

In 2010 I took a summer long illustration class in NYC. I searched high and low for a mixed media sketchbook to take on my trip. One that contained a variety of different high-quality art papers. After a long unsuccessful search I decided to just create my own by stapling my favorite papers together. Needless to say, it wasn't a very well made book but it served its purpose and that summer I got a ton of compliments and requests from other artists and illustrators. So i began to learn bookbinding skills and started selling custom sketchbooks to creatives around the world! And here we are today, in a number of shops in Chicago and Los Angeles as well as participating in a number of craft fairs across the country.
