If you’re an art student, a plein air painter, or anyone who likes to draw and sketch on the go, I definitely recommend checking out Artist Cargo on Kickstarter.

And best of all, this project is already fully funded—so they WILL be manufacturing these (in New York City) and shipping them to their Kickstarter supporters in the very near future.

Want one of your own? Head on over before October 2nd and help back this project!
