I am drawing again

It has been a long time since I have drawn much of anything. But I am getting back to it now.

Please feel free to give any pointers and suggestions along with any links to good quality supplies, etc.

Thanks all.

Congratulations for getting the drawing going again! I would recommend buying a special sketch tote (11 × 14" artbin satisfys most museum rules and protects your gear) for all your supplies. I have my sketchbook, and two tray boxes: one full of color pencils & regular pencils and sharpener, eraser etc. and another full of art markers. I also pack art postcards for inspiration. If the occasion doesn't allow for a tote, then bring along a small (8×5")sketchbook (I call them James Bond sketchbooks) and a bic pen. I would recommend keeping a variety of sketchbook sizes in stock for different occasions. Enjoy the change of material necessitated by the situation (museum, road trip, cocktail party): bic, marker, colored pencil etc. Most of all, enjoy the chance to do bad drawings in your sketchbooks, where else can you do them?! Good luck!
