Dry Erase Boards For Drawing Cartoons

Updated on May 23, 2011

Dry Erase Marker Boards

 Dry erase marker boards are another office tool for writing notes, but again my favorite for drawing quick sketches that I can quickly capture on a marker board and use then wipe the board clean when done, it saves space with extra paper and becomes just a fun drawing and quick sketch tool for artists, kids and those who need to brainstorm ideas and sketches together. Now the larger dry erase boards are the more preferred marker boards as you can get a lot written together with a few sketches all in one sitting, but there may be a requirement for you to provide presentation boards for different things somewhere along the road.

Whether you use a few marker boards for your own personal display for your ideas or to show to a team of people ie: work colleagues, these dry erase boards are the ideal things to use as all you need are dry marker pens and a few boards to fit all of your ideas and notes on. I myself have a few A5 size dry erase marker boards with goals for the day plastered all around the house, ok, not everywhere in the house but at least 3 boards are displayed quite prominently near my computer workspace, in the kitchen and the toilet, the top three places where I spend most of my time.

So get a cheap small dry erase board and write your goals for the day, then get a medium sized dry erase marker board to jot down ideas and quick sketches and then from there a massive dry erase board to really get busy on daily new ideas and drawing notes. Wipe them clean each day and they'll last a life time!

      Yeah I've tested this and it does work, a good digital camera can work wonders or if you can take the drawing board sheet out then you can scan it into your computer, so long as it's no bigger than A4 or A3 size depending on your scanner size!

      Cheers now!

      I draw quick tattoo sketches on these and then do a quick trace over the sketch and then wipe, I've archived many good quick sketches this way!

      Wayne, this got me to thinking what a neat medium a dry erase board could be with a variety of colored markers. You could whip off a quick sketch, (taking the unique properties of the marker-on-board combo), capture the image on a digital camera and use the illustrations for hubs.

      I think we should explore this... Hmmmm!

      I've always been a huge fan of dry erase boards in the home and the office. The good news is they come in a myriad of sizes and are relatively inexpensive -- so when they become difficult to clean over time you can just replace them! Enjoyed the hub!

      I Remember as a kid the teacher throwing a blackboard rubber at my head for not paying attention to the lessons

      I think any office, school or boardroom would be remiss in its duties if a Dry Erase Board were absent. Nothing works better, and chalkboards get way too dirty and are very difficult to clean! A quick wipe and you're ready to go on to the next visual aide on the subject, and in a variety of colors; far more captivating then a blackboard. Great hub.
