DOODLEWASH REVIEW: Watercolor/Art Journals Part II ~ Doodlewash®I was looking for a small sketchbook to fit inside my minimalist watercolor sketching kit, and the Hand Book Artist Journal [ affiliate ] seemed to be a perfect fit. This sketchbook is sold on the web and in stores by a lot of different names — Hand Book or Handbook Journal, Travelogue Drawing Journal, Global Artist Journal, etc — but most of the reviews were positive and the price was quite nice for paper that supposedly accepts pencil, pen, and watercolor. The description of the sketchbook sounded perfect: Attractive and functional featuring buff colored blank pages, a durable elastic closure, and a useful clear plastic envelope to hold notes or business cards. The heavyweight sheets are gsm and acid free with a light, toothy surface that accepts pen-and-ink, pencil, markers, and light watercolor washes without buckling. Well, I love buff colored paper that doesn't buckle under washes, and the accessories sounded awesome. I'll take an elastic closure and heck, I'm sure I'll find a use for that clear plastic envelope.
