Over on Instagram I shared a peek inside my drawing bag, and y'all really wanted to see what else was inside. Here is a detailed look!
I used to keep everything in a small freebie bag I got from Sephora. However, I've since upgraded because I have been drawing more and wanted more supplies at hand. The Happy Planner bag is perfect for carrying all of my drawing needs!
It a little bigger than a standard Happy Planner and has So Much Room inside! It has two sides, each with a very functional zip-around, and top handles for carrying. Each side has a combination of pockets and compartments. The first side I'm showing has two removable pouches and a large pocket. The second side has 2 zipped compartments and an elasticated pouch. Let's take a look inside!
You can't have a drawing kit without pencils and markers! I really enjoy the Tombow MONO Pencils - the 2H is my favorite. I'm not particular about which marker colors I carry, these are just some extra Tombow Dual Brush Markers from my stash.
I also carry fine point markers (mine are the TwinTones by Tombow) and my most-reached-for drawing supplies (drawing pens, erasers, sharpener, small ruler) in Iris photo boxes to keep them contained. They fit perfectly in the cases and the cases fit perfectly in the pouch on this side of the planner bag.
On the other side of the bag I keep my watercolors and waterbrushes. I love the Inktense watercolor pencils for sketching out designs and the Koi Sketch Box is small, but packs a mighty punch. Fun fact: I used these pencils and watercolors exclusively when I was painting my Merry Harry Christmas designs!
It's not a drawing kit without a sketchbook. I like this small one by Strathmore for on the go because it fits perfectly in the elasticated pocket! Mixed media paper is my favorite to keep in my drawing bag because you can use it with pretty much anything - markers, pens and pencils, even watercolors.
I am so obsessed with the Botanical Line Drawing book by Peggy Dean that I even took it camping with me earlier this summer. It's full of gorgeous line drawings that she breaks down in to easy to understand steps. They are very do-able even if you're not a "drawer".
I hope taking a peek in my bag was helpful! If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments below. Thanks for reading!
