SKETCHBOOK: My previous 8x6 Pentallic Sketchbook didn't have cover impression defects like the one I ordered from Amazon (photos included), but I really don't mind since I'll scuff up the cover with everyday use. This is one of my favorite sketchbooks because the pages are thick and, in my opinion, very high quality. There is barely any texture to the paper, which I prefer. The paper thickness and smoothness makes it perfect for writing and drawing.
PEN & INKS: I draw and color with Copics (outlining pens & Sketch brush markers), Crayola markers, and Sharpies (writing pens & markers), and many other pens/markers/pencils. Most of the pens I use for outlining and writing do not bleed through to the back of the page. The Copic Sketch brush markers bleed through, mainly because they use Alcohol-based ink. I've also used a quill pen with dipping ink that did not bleed through. Sharpie writing pens do not bleed through (photo of drawing), but Sharpie Markers probably will.
OVERALL: It will probably have some minor defects on the cover, but you're buying a sketchbook with great quality paper at a cheap price! If my new one is used up quickly, I'll be back for another.
For a journal so cheap, I was initially worried that the paper would be thin and disappointing, but I was pleasantly surprised by how nice and heavy it was. I haven't had any problem with bleeding with the pens (ink and gel) I've used.
The quality of the paper seems good, and the cover is decent. It will be used more for patterns than an actual drawing/sketch.
I have had some time to work with this book. I love it now! It is easy to take with me and do some sketching. I have been able to improve my skills and produced some intricate pieces that I would have never tried, or done on a larger book. (I have issues with tennis elbow when I do this type of work).
I wanted to update this because I was really not thrilled when I received this. Now after some time and use, I will definitely get more.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS!
i have gone through many different brands of sketchbooks in search of the perfect one. And although there are many great brands out there that cater to specific media, most of those just don't fit my needs. My purposes for a general everyday sketchbook are: it has to be versatile, it has to be durable, and it has to be portable. And this sketchbook goes above and beyond my requirements.
Versatile...my media of choice is pen work, specifically ballpoint pen. But this book can also take ink pens like Micron and Faber-Castell, as well as pencil and blending stumps. But my need ends there. This is definitely a DRY MEDIA sketchbook. LIGHT washes or highlights are ok but this is NOT a book that can support paint very well (watercolor or acrylic). Even heavy ink use is not something I would recommend.
Durable...because the cover is flexible and has a more paperback book feel to it I'm not afraid of banging it around in my purse. The cover feels and looks like foam, and I've never had any problems with the pages falling out (and I've owned MANY of these). The bungie closure is tight enough to keep all the pages closed as it travels. This is a must, especially with a purse as chaotic as mine.
Portable...the book is light and very easy to carry around in my purse or a backpack. You can draw with it in your hands without the need of a table or desk. It's discreet and even this larger 6x8 size is slim enough to pull out anywhere (there are smaller sizes, which are great as well).
Some other notes about the sketchbook are the paper color is a nice bright white. I tend not to like the yellow/brown look of "natural" white paper so the bright (almost blue) white of the pages definitely appeals to me. There is a good amount of pages in it, ample space to express myself. And the pages do not bleed through to the other side, even with some watercolor washes. Ink pens and ballpoints do not bleed, feather, or show through, which means I can fill the pages cover to cover, front and back, with all of my life's sketches.
It's also important to note that this book does NOT lay flat. It is more like a paperback book in that regard.
In conclusion, This is an amazing sketchbook for actual sketching or journaling. It can take pens and pencils well, though not paint or heavy amounts of ink. It is durable, versatile, and highly portable, and is the closest to perfect that I have ever found. Great general-purpose sketchbook!!
