There’s no such thing as too much sketchbooks, so I am out there hoarding for more. I breathe and live for art, so a sketchbook is a must have.
During my visit at the National Bookstore, I saw these Limelight Sketchbooks on a shelf. My heart said “It’s a sketchbook! Let’s buy it!” but my mind says “Wait! Let’s check for quality.” The gray colored book got my attention not only because of the color, but also because it has that hardbound cover and an elastic strap. And when I held one, my first impression was ” hmmm…it might be expensive”. I was expecting it to be priced at 400-500 pesos. But I was surprised that it’s only 199 pesos. So, I bought one and used it right away.

This sketchbook is perfect for those who are always on the go. I highly recommend it for sketches using pen, pencil, and light watercolor washes. Markers can also be used but make sure to put another piece of paper underneath because markers do bleed on the other side. It’s also great for bullet journaling. These can be a perfect gift for your artistic friends, for your kids who love to draw, or just simply for yourself.
I loved the sketchbook so much that I had to buy 2 more. So now, I have the gray, black and red. For those who are looking for an affordable sketchbook, consider Limelight.
