i do a lot of drawing on ordinary un-ruled 3×5 cards. cause their cheap- 99 cents a pack and not hard to carry around. and if i ‘mess’ it up so what- paper was a penny a piece. then i take pictures of them, and give them away when someone likes it. i have the photo, i don’t need the card. let someone else enjoy it.
