A moleskine sketchbook was given to me a few years ago and I thought it was the best present ever, but no matter how hard I tried and tried, I can’t manage to comfortably ink on it. I always see in the Internet a lot of amazing ink drawings made on these sketchbooks.

I guess I’m supposed to draw on it only with the micron, without making a prior sketch. But that isn’t handy for me, I prefer my dip pen (is cheaper and faster) :(

Apparently I can’t have a nice binding and a paper appropriate to my means at the same time.
