  1. Would love one of these — I keep meaning to work some art back into my writing journals, but it’s hard to find paper that really works well for both. Sounds like these would be perfect! 🙂

  2. Would love to do a series of sketches in the book. Teach myself how to draw some bulldogs…

  3. I’d really love to win one of these. I’ve got a fantasy novel I am writing that will hopefully someday be a series; I’d like a dedicated sketchbook for all the characters and creatures and scenes I can SEE coming up to use as reference as I write.

  4. I really want to get back to doodling and doing Zentangles to relax. I’m not much of an artist, but I love trying out new patterns and just letting my mind wander.

  5. Watercolor painting! I’m always looking for good paper that doesn’t curl up when it gets wet.

  6. I’d really love to get one of these Stillman & Birn sketchbooks, could be great for my preparation sketches, and doing some color tests on this paper. For a creative mind a new sketchbook means a new world just waiting to be created.

  7. If I won a Stillman & Birn sketchbook, I would fill it with my EveryDay Matters challenge drawings.

  8. I’d love a multimedia notebook 🙂 My go-to notebook’s spine broke, because it wasn’t meant for the task, and I’d have something that can stand up to the challenge!

  9. I’d love to win one of these Stillman & Birn sketchbooks because I haven’t yet decided which type I like the best. So far I’ve filled an Epsilon and have now started an Alpha which I like very much. The great variety of sizes and quality papers is why Stillman & Birn is so attractive to me. One of these smaller books would be great to carry with me during the day to do sketches on my lunch hour.

  10. I would have to fill it with my watercolor paintings and have it progress from newbie to not-so-newbie. I’m very impress by the paper and how well it handles watercolor.

  11. I take aggressive notes in film school.
    Mostly they’re doodles, but also sometimes they include things professors say.

  12. Thanks for the giveaway! I’m attempting to teach myself to draw dogs, primarily the dogs at BARCS (Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter). Eventually I’d like to use the drawings/watercolors/collages to raise money for the BARCS medical fund. I’m doing this anyway, but how nice to do the drawings, etc. in a Zeta! Happy Thursday, Joanie

  13. Great giveaway! If I were lucky enough to win, I’d give the sketchbook to my 17-year-old daughter, an aspiring artist, for her upcoming senior year.

  14. I love my Stillman & Birn sketchbooks for daily art journaling.They stand up really well to whatever “media punishment” that occurs to them.

  15. I would love to have a Stillman & Birn sketchbook because of its quality. I’m slowly getting back into sketching, and like how much better my scrappy LOs and my mixed media turns out when I practice. I also have some lovely watercolors that I never get to use, and they are calling my name.

  16. I have been lemming over these books for a while now but none of the art stores around here ship them.

  17. Thanks for holding this giveaway! I love Stillman & Birn sketchbooks. If I were a lucky winner, I would love to use my Zeta for an ink and watercolor series of national monuments in DC!

  18. Would love a wirebound Stillman and Birn sketchbook! Love this company’s sketchbooks! Haven’t bought another brand since my first Stillman and Birn.

  19. I’d love a Stillman and Birn sketchbook – I’m off on holiday next month and this would be perfect!

  20. I love notebooks, I am obsessed with them! I fill them with doodles and tangles and odds and ends of thoughts of the moment written as I doodle. I carry a small notebook with me for when I see something that inspires a tangle/doodle for me! I would love to try Stillman and Birn to add watercolor effects to my drawings! Thanks for the opportunity!

  21. I would love to win one of the Stillman and Birn Zeta sketchbooks. I currently use the Beta series for watercolor and love it. However, I have been looking for a sketchbook with smooth paper for some time to try some different mixed media effects and so when the Zeta came out I thought this is the answer. However, so far, I have been unable to buy one here in Canada. Thanks for the chance to win one of these.

  22. Hi! Fellow sketchers that already use the Stillman @ Birn Zeta say wonders about it, but they can’t be found in Montreal. I’d be really grateful to have one for Urban Sketching!

  23. I have tried all the other Stillman and Birn sketch books and love,love,love them! I do art journaling and have not tried the Zeta sketch book yet. I would love to! Thanks for this give away!

  24. My desperate hunt for the perfect notebook lead me here! I’ve been trawling through shops, blogs and forums to find the best sketchbook for ink and washes. I’d LOVE to try the Stillman & Birn books. I can’t find them in shops in the UK!!

  25. I love my Stillman and birn books, and fill them with all types do mixed media, markers, pencils, paint, ink, sprays, Gelli plate, beads, fibers, wire, material…..whatever can be glued or sewed! I always have one on me in my pocketbook! Can always use more!

  26. Stillman & Birn sketchbook would be great to have! Ready for anything. Gelli plate is calling! Addicted to that thing!

  27. Oops…. I posted in the wrong comment ….. I would love to win one of their notebooks….. I am taking a class with Dion Dior and she uses them entirely….. I have not had the funds to buy one so this would be a great time to win one. Thank you for this opportunity.

  28. I would love to win one of the notebooks to fill with my dream ideas for projects that i may or may not ever get to complete.
