Art & Doodles: A Travelling "Sketch Wallet" from Derwent Products

In a few weeks I'll be heading to Cuba with my mom (very excited!) so naturally I thought bringing along my little "travelling art pad" or, a Sketch Wallet as it's better known, would be ideal.

This little thing is so neat! It's made from a UK company called Derwent that Brian gave me on our first Christmas together. He knew I liked to draw and thought this would come in handy if I was sitting outside or on the road and suddenly had the urge to sketch something.

It's soft like a cushion on the outside and super light-weight. Inside it contains the drawing pad, pencil crayons, sketch pencils, an eraser, and metal sharpener.

With camera phones and Instagram'ing everything these days, I've honestly forgotten how nice it can be to take some extra time in the day and do some fun drawings and sketches outside. There's something very authentic, relaxing, and certainly rewarding about it when you have your finished product!
