Acting as a chauffeur has bonuses for artists. I doubt I would have otherwise spent a day sketching within a three block radius of New York Presbyterian Hospital. It was a fabulous day of sketching and meeting the locals who took turns keeping watch over their territory.
I tested out another lightweight sketch bag. This one is made by Lihit Lab and it is called Smart Fit. It has side loops to clip on a strap, but doesn’t come with a strap. I have a comfy cotton strap from an old duffle bag that works well. this bag passed my test with flying colors!
