Why doodles look better on moleskines, we might never really know. What we do know is that this particular notebook has fueled, if not revived, many artists’ love for traditional sketching. Even artists who have long practiced digital arts seem to be enamored.
Looking into some of the most creative sketches online, we’ve discovered how great they truly are! Imagine such works on your website, on posters, on business cards, on basically anything. They come in all shapes and sizes. Ask an artist and they might even list art media that they love to use with their moleskines: some may tell you that they love ball-point pens or fountain pens, some may tell you that they prefer watercolors and some may even tell you that they fancy doing mixed-media.
Whichever way, if you add these media with moleskines and talent, we’re pretty sure one will never go wrong. For today, you can feast your eyes on some of the finest moleskine illustrations.

SKIN PAPER DEEP: MOLESKINE ARTWORKS THAT WOW
Moleskine Artwork by Irina Vinnik
Drawing, step 1
Presented here is a drawing demo. The story so far: I am working upright on an easel. The drawing surface is a sheet of tinted charcoal paper taped to a sturdy board with a thick sheet of paper sandwiched between the two (to provide some cushion). Several sticks of compressed charcoal (from 2-4 inches long), a white pastel stick, Paper stumps, a single edge razor, and a kneadable eraser are the tools. The image here has been laid out, but I feel the proportion is off on the length of the cougar’s nose/muzzle, I feel it’s bridge is too long. In the past I may have let it be, but investing hours in a drawing that is based on faulty proportion is not a happy feeling once the piece is completed and the mistake is more evident.
