My First Moleskine

I'm not one of those serious, ultra meticulous artists out there.  I'm more of a hobo artist.  In fact, I still cringe and blush when I refer to myself as an artist.  *cringes and blushes upon typing those words*  I don't require fancy paper to get the job done.  I sketch on the margins of discarded documents and on the backboards of old cereal boxes.  And I'm fine with that.  I'm ghetto like that.
And then one day, I decided to part ways with a thousand bucks to buy myself a Moleskine Sketchbook.

Honestly, nothing.  I had an el chep-o sketch pad in one hand and then this spasm overtook my body.  I blacked out.  The next thing I knew, I was at the counter holding the most expensive piece of art supply I have ever purchased in my entire life.

Upon closer inspection, the Moleskine yields 104 pages.
Each, heavy acid free paper.
Each, thick with a texture so smooth, you glide on it.
The book totes easily at 13 x 21cm.
It even has a very convenient expandable inner pocket.
And a garter binder that hugs the leather bound book close when not in use.
It screamed quality.  Altogether a glorious buy!

And so, regrets long gone, let this day be known as the day I finally jumped into a higher class of artistry and taste.  Gingerly --and extra cautiously-- I dove in!
With Panda Ballpen.
(What were you expecting?  A fountain pen?  Let's not rush this initiation into quality, ok?!)
And I am superbly pleased. 

The Moleskine Sketchbook is available at Fullybooked for Php1,195.00.
