    I would love to try all the types of refill booklets on these because I use lined notebooks for bullet journaling, but primarily I use blank sketchbooks and loved my previous hahnemuhle sketchbook. You can see some of my work on Instagram @smgettysart, on Facebook as Sean-Michael Gettys Art or on the Sktchy app as Sean-Michael Gettys. I love to use fountain pens, and sometimes ballpoint, micron, and watercolor but in this sketchbook would likely not do wet work unless it was fountain pen sketches with a light water rush like this: https://instagram.com/p/BEWvT_bAe-Q/

    Like to sketch and journal in my sketch books. Looks an ideal size for mobility.

    I would love to try the blank page DiaryFlex. I use all sorts of media for sketching from pencil to ink pens. I actually have a new set of pens that I am about to try out, so one of these books would be perfect. I like to have a sketch book on me when I am out and about with my dogs, and I also like to take one to art class. My current sketch book is nearly full, so I would love one of these.

    I sketch most days in cafes or perhaps at a National Trust property. I have been using your fantastic pastel paper to work up some of these sketches. I would love to try the Plain DIARYFLEX , it looks just what I need.

    I would love a blank page DiaryFlex. I’m always seeing things that I want to capture when I’m out and about. The iPhone never catches quite enough detail – sketches are much better. I use pastels predominantly and love to draw. Also, I’d like my own sketchbook because my seven year old daughter is a budding artist and is always pinching mine!

    These new books seem to meet all my sketchersize needs – so valuable for note taking, drawing, sketching and plein air painting – I never go anywhere without a sketchbook – handbag, coat pockets, car, rucksack, studio, house, holidays. I’d love to test them for you and share my experience

    Summer has finally arrived and now is an ideal time to go out walking and take a sketch book. Ideal size to fit into a bag with watercolours and pencil – good quality paper and a good name!

    I DO EXPERIMENTAL work and love trying new media/methods and a portable sketchbook ,will be with me wherever I go

    Summer is on its way and the warmer weather is ideal for sketching outside – all the fascinating people who stand about or move more slowly when it is warm, as well as the lovely gardens and buildings that I can sketch without freezing. These pads look ideal for carrying in my pocket or handbag, but the actual sketchpad part can be stored more easily when it is full.

  10. Caroline Green

    See 10 above – yes, these pads are ideal to sketch discreetly in public (I don’t really like too much attention when I am sketching) and will keep all the sketches clean and uncreased until the pad is full – I would love one and would probably fill them in a matter of weeks!

    I love to stroll along the sea front with my sketch book to capture images of summer. Be it people, gardens, the sailing regatta or even the lowly seagulls; there’s a place in my sketchbook for them and the DiaryFlex looks as though it would very easily fit in my pocket. Think it would also find its way into the glove compartment of my car for those excursions into the countryside, not to mention stately homes and gardens. In a nutshell, it would be a very useful item to have!

    I was sketching in Madrid last week but sadly lost my handbag and therefore my sketches, This notebook looks better than the one I lost and I like the possibility of refilling it. I’d like to have one of these as I’m sure it would inspire me to do my best work! I sketch people in cafes and paintings or statues in museums.

  13. Lori North

    I have never kept a sketch book even though I am constantly told it is important. I think I have never found one that inspires me enough to carry it around all the time. This one could be the answer, I might surprise myself

  14. Malcolm M Bullock

    Thanks – your email reminded me I bought a sketch diary of yours in march 2014 from Porthmadog and prompted me to dig it out. The comment on the first page is how impressed I am with the paper as ink, one of my prefered mediums, does not bleed through the paper. Now re found I will keep it handy and use it 🙂

  15. Teresa Benton

    As a lady of a certain age, I need help to remember my colourful and creative thoughts…this would be an ideal helper! I always get my best ideas when I am out and never have anything in which to record them.

  16. Terry Finnegan

    I love sketching when I travel and have an upcoming trip to Sweden this month and it would be great to try out the new DiaryFlex. I’m also starting up a sketch group this month so it would provide a lovely sample. Sketching people, locations and everyday items, in pen,pencil or watercolour often as reference for artworks and paintings.
