    You can use anything you like for a blackbook, but traditionally its black. scrap paper is ok, but with a book you can leaf back and learn from your previous efforts. Its too easy to lose stuff if you use scraps. if you fill a book, get a new one and put the other somewhere safe. You'll develop your own style quicker by retrospection than you will by biting from your betters. It takes a long time to understand how what you've bitten works and flows. If you actually worked something out in your book yourself you already know how it flows and can take it even further. Who knows, maybe you'll come up with something no ones seen.

    i use 2 hardcover travel sketch books. 1 is my blackbook where i work on tags and throws (and try piece layouts. I know I dont have the skills, but a toys gotta dream right?) In my 2nd book i'm writing a novel. Its not for anyone else but me. Its a great way to practice your handie. when i look back at early pages i can see slow improvement in form and fluidity. As kewl as a mad wildstyle piece may be, when you do your first full page of neat flowing handie, you'll feel like you've really accomplished something. This was stressed to me time and again.

    And seriously consider adding a handie book to your blackbook and practice your handwriting too. How can you write your name up for all to see when you cant write a fucking sentence legibly.
    Peace or Piece, its all the same to me...

    blackbooks are for passing around to other writers like autograph books, as well as some of your dope shit. i wouldnt waste a good bbook on practicing simple stuff

    but if you're a toy, simple stuff IS probably your best stuff... but i get what you mean... So i guess i don't have a blackbook by your definition, but i still reckon my point about being able to look back on your old stuff is a valid reason to use a book. Don't have to be pricey.

    Also it seems like my idea of a blackbook is what the dude was after.

    Dont like moleskin, too thin and ink tends to bleed through.Have a couple of sketch books, A4 cheap for dumb shit, b5 good quality for good shit and ink drawings and a moleskine for field notes, all bought, because I can afford it.

    I have several different books for different things; one for throwies, on for piece ideas, one for characters, and another for random scribbles. It helps to organize your thoughts

    No I use like a random book, a word search, a saduku book, so it's very discreet.

    basicly use anything thats paper because some people use sheet metal but this is not good because pencils and pens dont write very well on sheet metal and also its heavy

    so dont use sheet metal for doing pieces use paper
