Red Co’s Impressions Notebook is a Genetic Freak With Two Tails

To be totally candid: I’m just trying out different notebooks that cost less than Moleskine’s, the “budget alternatives” if you will. So the Red Co Impressions series clocks in around a tenner, and it’s got 240 pages, they are a good weight, but unfortunately the hardcover is not very hard at all, in fact it’s floppy.

The one I’m reviewing is the 5″x7″ version with “plain” pages, it’s extremely flexy, you won’t be running your bluetooth mouse on top of it. Other than the flaccidness, it’s an all-around strong offering for the price.

On top of being a good, utilitarian notebook, it has TWO ribbon bookmarks! This is the only model I’ve encountered so far to have this feature, it’s pretty useful if you are doing more than one project at once like…uhm…everyone.


 

I’m ready to flop.

Rodimus Prime

Just starting to read IDW’s Lost Light. New Faber-castell brush pen greys I bought on sale at Utrecht.

As always, I’m using the trust P22 Sharp from Pentel and Faber0Castell Pitt Pens, and a highlighter. The quote is from “The Outer Limits” episode “Soldier.”

Jason Voorhees

Faber Castell Pitt Pens and the new Pentel GraphGear 800 0.7mm mechanical pencil I’m trying out. As always, I use White Pearl erasers. This is Jason from Part 6 seemingly…

 

 

Titans Return Optimus Prime

I’ve been using the Pentel GraphGear 800 (PG807), 0.7mm mechanical pencil, and inking with Faber-Castell Pitt Pens. This is an homage to the Generation 2 Optimus Prime that came out in the 90’s, but this is the new Prime from 2017’s Titans Return line.

Flying Dutchmen

I’ve been fascinated with the tales of The Flying Dutchman, a ghost ship never allowed to return to port. It may have been based on reflections on the ocean’s surface making ships in the distance appear to float several feet off of the surface.

The Combiner Wars Optimus Prime is actually a really great mold. He’s a little short and stocky, but well articulated and powerful looking.
