I did that for awhile and then suddenly decide that I needed a better way of working and then when I got it I hardly used it...oh well!

This is great! I've been having to improvise with whatever I could find to make a portable drawing surface. I didn't think they'd be that affordable. Thank you!

Yeah I've got an A1 size drawing board that in all honesty I hardly ever use, except for some minor draft work, but they are very useful when I do use them as I'm able to see a large white space and just fill it with a nice light source with my halogen lamp hanging over it...might start using mine more often as it may help me draw more, because the past few weeks I've been zapped by the unmotivator the unseen force that zaps the energy....

Excellent! I have two, one 16" or so and one about 28" or something, it's really big. I use the smaller one more often. Eventually I want to get a parallel edge board, but the one I want is pretty expensive.

On the other hand if my script from Script Frenzy comes out good, I may really want that in May. Thanks for an article that reminded me of it -- might go take a look at that again and look at my May budget seriously.
