First, I got my comments working again! I can communicate with you folks!
When I was in San Diego I went to the DickBlick artstore (before the convention started so the still were stocked!) and bought a sketckbook to try out it's named "Strathmore Visual Journal". It's only 3.5"x5"
but it was only $1.50!
Below is a study from Bill Presig.
It's filled with 56 sheets of 100lb. smooth Bristol and it's great for inking, watercolor & acrylics.
Then while I was at a local school for an art council meeting, I sketched the other council members.
I try not to be seen doing it, because it might seem rude not paying attention, or the subjects get self conscious!
I hope life stays calm so I can work on the new YETS! book.
