November 2017 Update: now available in new colors!
I’m happy to announce the launch of the Pocket Art Toolkit, available now in my Shop! Designed to fit a standard Moleskine watercolor notebook, this compact version of the Art Toolkit is perfect for lightweight, on-the-go sketching and painting.
The Pocket Art Toolkit contains field sketching essentials including a Pocket Palette, Moleskine watercolor notebook, waterbrush, waterproof fine pen, 6 inch ruler, and two mini clips. These are all contained in a rugged, Cordura zip cover that measures just under 5″ x 7.5″ when closed.
I started sewing prototypes and experimenting with ideas for the Pocket Art Toolkit over a year ago, after I began sketching panoramas in a small Moleskine watercolor notebook. While I love my original Art Toolkit for its flexible loose-leaf paper system and capacity for more tools (here’s an example of what I carry in it), I wanted something even smaller and lighter for my everyday doodles and explorations.
The three pockets on each side and vertical sleeves allow a number of tools to be stored. I have a one watercolor notebook, one standard slim notebook, a Pocket Palette, towel, refill syringe, mister, natural sponge, gum eraser, clips, sharpener, mini water container, toothbrush head, Lamy Safari pen, Rapidograph 0.35mm pen, Silver Black Velvet #8 travel brush, Da Vinci #3 Maestro sable brush, and HB pencil. Zipped up, the whole kit fits nicely inside a purse or large pocket.
I hope that the Art Toolkit system of kits and compact sketching supplies inspires you to sketch anytime, anywhere!
