The subject isn't new, but the sketchbook is. This is the first drawing in my new Stillman & Birn Gamma series sketchbook. I liked the landscape format and size, and the paper quality and texture, but they are serious when they say "accepts light washes." "Light" should be in italics. The paper was quite curled at the corners when I looked at it this morning. Nevertheless, this is the best-quality, all-purpose, purchased sketchbook I've used. If it manages to get me drawing regularly again, that will be great.
