Portable Drawing Desk

A reader sends word of Matt Reidsma’s excellent Studio2Go portable drawing studio –

I needed a way to make my drawing desk portable, so that I could easily work on my strip while on vacation, and so I could easily relocate anywhere in the house when I needed to. My solution was to modify this wooden drawing case to hold all of my supplies as well as serve as a drawing surface.
The masonite drawing surface has metal on the back, and attaches to the lid by high-powered magnets affixed inside the lid of the box. It doesn’t slide at all when I’m drawing, and there are no fixtures to use to keep it attached. Thank Wendy for this awesome idea! I also added a little pen ledge because I like to leave my pencil and the artwork lying around sometimes while I refill my coffee mug.

Nice work – could be great for working outdoors!
