Sketchbook For Artists
ZenART’s sketchbooks are the ultimate art sketchbooks to have for any artist. Designed by our co-founder Ardak Kassenova who’s an artist herself, our sketchbooks are both beautiful and ultrapractical. They’re made to be quite durable and lightweight so you can easily bring them along with you wherever you go without worrying about damaging them. Sketch or lightly paint anytime and anywhere, our goal is to help you develop that daily sketching or painting habit.
Our sketchbooks’ covers are made using engineered leather making them very hardy against all weather conditions and yet still very flexible, completed with a slim and sleek finish. It’s water-repellent so you only need to wipe it down for some cleaning, plus it gives that much-needed added protection to your art entries on the pages inside.
Mixed Media Sketchbook
ZenART’s sketchbooks are designed to be used for various creative purposes such as sketches, drawings, preparatory studies for your final work, some note-taking, gluing collage work, and even the occasional very light and not too wet painting. The paper feels smooth to the touch but has more than enough tooth for your dry media to latch on to. If you’re exploring art journaling and love creating mixed media works, then these are sketchbooks that definitely won’t break the bank as long as you don’t mind a little buckling for the wet media applications.
Another feature to love is that they have a 180° lay-flat spine that allows you to do full spreads using both pages at once, giving you an even bigger area to work with when you want it. With 120 gsm thick ivory-colored paper that’s also acid-free, you won’t need to worry about it yellowing or suddenly falling apart on you over time. The pages are folded, hand-stitched, and glued together making them very resilient to various kinds of handling.
You’ll find the elastic closure they come with to be quite useful, especially when doing mixed media where some of your pages will end up being thicker than others. The elastic closure will make sure that everything is kept in order and stays together when you’re out and about.
