Re: [ia-55] Stationary for sketching

I second the UX booth approach. 

For me, dot grids  offer the perfect balance of white paper and some structure. 

For pens, I fell in love with these Staedtler Triplus pens   that I got at the IxDA conference. It's nice to be able to call out primary buttons even at sketch level. Having grey pens helps define hierarchy. Which then leads into some use of good quality markers such as Prisma or Copic (you can buy these individually at art supply stores). I ended up getting 2 colors which were light versions of the company's style guide palette plus a light grey. This just makes it quick to block out sections in tone without having to cross hatch. 

It's all part of bringing craft back into the game.
