    I have to concur with Arshes Nei on this. I used to, years ago during art school, go with the traditional hardback sketchbooks from Canson and draw out some ideas for projects or life drawing. That was back in the mid-1990s. Then after 2002 when my late father passed on, I stumbled across a moleskine for the first time in a Utrecht chain store and decided, "why the hell not?". For a change, I wanted to experiment with it and needed a smaller and compact sketchbook. For years, I used to carry the big and hefty ones in my carrier/messenger bag.

    When I switched to Moleskine, it was a revelation for me because it fit my personality since I liked the old school leatherbound sketchbooks or journals, infamously seen in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Plus, the paper surface was a godsend due to my reliance on ink or graphite, and best of all, it was lightweight. It was certainly much easier to crack it open flat and prep it for scanning than the hardbacks. I never looked back since then because I always like the compact size of it when I draw in coffeehouses, bars, and so on. It's a nice way for me to keep a record of brainstormed ideas, layout concepts, or such.

    Just recently I got a COPIC Multiliner SP (pigment ink) pen along with the COPIC F01 drawing pen. It was perfect and solved the problem after using the Micro pigma pens for so long (not knocking them. I still like them). I mentioned them on my blog site. Also STAEDLER pigment liner (fineliner brand) pens work beautifully on the moleskine as well.

    But there have been new ''moleskine'-inspired sketchbooks cropping up in the market lately and Canson is one of the manufacturers doing that. I briefly saw this at a Utrecht branch in Cleveland a few months ago on vacation. So, look around and compare but definitely experiment with the sketchbooks to see if they fit your style, technique and personality.

    Eventually people give you so many "special" art materials as gifts, or you succumb to temptation at the art store enough times that you start using your good art materials to get them out of your way. One day I was drawing with my crappy pen on crappy printer paper, vaguely staring at my hoard of Bristol pads and pigment pens, and I realized how dumb the whole situation was.

    If you haven't reached that point yet, start talking up sketchbooks around Christmas. Someone will get the hint.

    I actually have 3 sketchbooks from Christmas. Not moleskin but nice! All filled up about 1/4th the way because I was saving the rest for something good -.- and when I go somewhere special.
