TM Inspiration Pad

If you’re in a creative rut and need some help thinking outside the box, this Inspiration Pad may be able to help. It throws away any standard line or grid system and in place of it are pages of zig zags, swirls, and non-sensical bends. Each page should inspire you to draw or write differently, or possibly give you a headache. Each notepad contains 32 pages and measures 165 x 210 mm.

Moleskine Unitied States Cities

That’s right, Moleskine has added quite a few United States cities to its collection of city notebooks. The city map is invaluable, and there’s tons of room for making notes on shops and restaurants to revisit (or avoid). I fully recommend getting whichever one for exploring whatever city you’re visiting, as I’ve found mine extremely handy to have.

Geometry Post Its

Yeah I know, a rectangular stickie note makes the most sense in the squared-off world we live in. But whatever, these cool geometric shaped ones are just fun. Even if you don’t actually do work with them, they’d be great to have around for gifts and other crafty projects. Someone buy me a pack of hexagons.

About Blank Notebook

This notebook might not look like much, but that’s precisely the point. No logos, subltle barely-there white lines on the pages, and it opens fully flat. So while all these things are small details, added up together it makes for a notebook that doesn’t get it the way of your drawing/writing.
