Currently, I only have one MS. It’s for watercolors and ink and it’s the normal MS size. It’s got 72 pages. I noticed that new folio-sized watercolor MS have come out, an A4 and an A3. I used to keep journals in cheaper notebooks, but I have tired of the cheap paper (ink and colors tend to run) so I’ll shortly get a slew of them from Page One. I want an A4 and A3 watercolor, with an A4 or large MS for journaling. I’d like a smaller pocket MS to take notes when I’m on the go, plus another one for my math research. From what I remember, I’m sure that they are quite cheap here and I’d like to take all of my school notes in MS. That could be really cool.
I have a bunch of paperblogs that I have never published. Plus, I’d like to use my daily notebooking as paperblogging. I’ll by a stamp of some fashion to mark the dates or I’ll just ink them in myself. I kind of like the idea of date stamps. I saw it used recently and the results were really nice. I think that I’ll keep my written entries separate from art. In the past, I combined both. Now, I’d like to just keep some interesting inking and a dash of colors in the margins to decorate entries.
So, here is my list. I decided to keep one so that it’s clearer in my mind.
- Large Sketchbook for journaling and paperblogging. I’ll mainly use inks, colors through pens and felts.
- Pocket notebook for on the go, maybe a reporter. To jot down ideas when I go around.
- Large notebook for math research. I’m specializing in Analysic, maybe holomorphic, though I’m not sure.
- Medium sized notebook for story ideas. I’ve been getting a few and I’d like to have a dedicated notebook for them. Makes things easier.
- Large notebooks for classes, 1 per subject
- Folio A4 Watercolor
- Folio A3 Watercolor
