Re: [BKARTS] pocket sketch books



I most often carry mine in a pack or in a vest pocket along with my other
art supplies. (Fly fishermen's vests work great for transporting art
supplies and sketchbooks if there's a lot to carry.  Otherwise one of those
little over-the- shoulder guide's packs (sort of like a purse) work really
well if it's just pencils, small sketchbook, a few pens or a field type
watercolor set).
    Basically, I'm interested in something that will work well for me in the
field and enable me to produce the best work I can as easily as possible
(Read:  I need all the help I can get!) and what I described is what I've
found to be most functional.
