    I sketch “my everydays” using graphite, pen and ink, and light washes of watercolor. I love good sketchbooks, and I must say this one has become my best friend. The square shape allows me to journal a bit alongside my “creation”, and it fits nicely in my lap or in my art bag, which I take along when I go out. You will not waste your money. It’s a lovely sketchbook!

    I bought this specifically for inks, markers and sketching. I love it. Even better than the illo for marker blending. Yes there is bleed through…but oh my. I don’t care. I’m using it with my ohuhus and they are juicy.

    Also thinking of using it for mixed media scrapbooking. The paper is like stock card nice and thick. Will be buying another. Hope it will come in 10 x 10 soon.

    The book came quickly. I like the 8 by 8 size. One page has a wrinkle in it. If you are a perfectionist, it would drive you crazy. I am ok with it because otherwise the paper is ok. The seams lay flat. I will probably buy another one when this one gets filled.

    As an artist, I’m super picky when it comes to sketch books but this one is just perfect for me! The paper is thick and feels super high-quality it doesn’t let anything through! The sketchbook feels very nice in the hand and has a nice weight to it. I also really like the fun details, like the purple inside cover with the cute illustrations. Def my favorite sketchbook!

    I have to say i have tried alot of sketchbooks and this one by far crosses off most of my t’s. Its budget friendly. It hold markers alot better then i expected. Great for dry media and not bad for wet media. Gouache does well. The pages will ripple on wet media but for a sketch book i think all around its a pretty solid buy for the price. I will buy again. Best of luck to all the artist out there. Happy arting!

    I wanted to try the illo sketchbook, but by the time I came to buy it, Amazon had stopped selling them. My purpose for searching was to have a hardcover sketchbook with sturdy paper and no rings (like my Cansons), that I can carry around without it adding extra weight (unlike the 8×8 Ohuhu markerpad). So this is where Articka came in.

    Pros: I love that it’s a square 8×8 hardcover sketchbook with perforated pages that’s still lightweight. I used gouache and watercolor in this book (multiple washes) and the paper did not tear nor pill. The paper buckled, but it was minimal. Note that this is SMOOTH, WHITE paper a little less thick than cardstock. No teeth to this paper. I do not believe this was intended for wet mediums and seems to be more for dry media. I’m just saying if you’re a rebel like me then you can get away with some wet media in the book. Looking at you art journalists. Crayola markers worked well in the sketchbook. I have not tried alcohol ink in this yet, but like with most sketchbooks I expect ghosting. I love that it lies flat and the purple designs on the inner covers are pretty (biased because it’s my favorite color). And I love the purple elastic that keeps the book closed and together.

    Cons: It doesn’t have a back expandable pocket! This was my biggest disappointment because I like to carry extra papers, post-it notes, reference photos and a 6 inch ruler in the back. I had to find a way to fashion my own and it unfortunately covered up the pretty purple design. So this is why it lost one star. I would love if it came with a pencil loop too. One other odd thing: I was fooling around with some cheap acrylic ink I bought because I was having art block and the ink ghosted through the page. Thinking that maybe I had gotten a bit heavy-handed with the ink I didn’t think too much of it. I used a tombow fudenosuke brush pen to do some line art and while it didn’t ghost, I could see it through the page.

    Overall, worth the investment. I’ll still grab an illo to compare, but I don’t think I’m missing out on anything without it.

    It took a while to get here but I Love this sketchbook. The paper is a lovely quality and perforated so you can remove work easily for framing if you like. The size is perfect for on-the-go drawing in pen or pencil.

    Got this sketchbook since Illo sketchbooks were sold out, and I’ve always wanted to try an Illo. So, I saw this and decided to give it a try, and definitely was not disappointed. This feels like a really good quality sketchbook . The inside cover is really cute purple with lavender doodles all over it. The paper is much thicker and better quality than I was expecting. Definitely plan on buying more of these in the future!

    The cover is soft. Nice to the touch. Can apply stickers. When you open it “ITS BEAUTIFUL “. The inside when opend to the first page has cute designs/doodles/purple pj. On the left of hard cover journal. The rest of the book has thick white pages. I love this journal. Too bad I dont see an option to show images of this journal in person. I love it. Will definitely buy this journal again for myself or as a gift.
