I find that I tend to fall into the trap of spending way too much time worrying about having the best and right tools. I've opted to use printer paper and a simple ruler now. I don't compromise on the pencil, though (to be a bit hypocritical) and that pencil is seriously the best you will ever find.

Do you treat your pencil to hand sharpening, or just use a commodity sharpening tool? [1]

It's mechanical, so neither.


I agree, those dotted grid books can be quite costly, especially if you tend to burn through a lot of paper fast.

I recently came across this site that let you print your own dotted paper which is a nice compromise.
