Connect the Dots with Rhodia dotPads [Poll]

Guest Post: The Joy of Dots

9 Jul

I have filled up thousands of pages of notebooks with what seems like every kind of paper.

 Most wilted under the weight and wear of all the pens and glues I put on them.  Many of the bindings stretched or fell apart or at least became misshapen.  I have been enamored with graph paper of all types but most lines simply want to be more prominent in the drawing than I want them to be.

Enter the Rhodia Dot paper. It loves my pens, smooth but slightly textured, the dots are ready to be a surface — a subtle ground to hold the drawing but not interfere with the story the image tells.

Just as quickly, the dots can be a starting place for a new drawing.  They can be used to create an open space, a surface that allows the first pencil marks to open up the space on the page to become its own new world.

Finally, in a drawing with curves and organic shapes, the dots become invisible to my creative eye and are a silent partner in the creative process.  In this world of dots on smooth slightly textured paper, the dots can vanish under the lines of my pen and become the structure of a drawing.

 Thank you Rhodia Dots.

Get Prepped (and Psyched) with Rhodia’s Academic Planners (2012-13)

6 Jun

Dear Diary,

I’m so excited to get this planner and get organized. I didn’t get a planner in January and am excited for a fresh new start in August; ready for a great rest of the year!

xoxo, EPC

Rhodia 2012-13 Academic Pocket Weekly Planner (4 x 6) on EuropeanPaper.com

Rhodia 2012-13 Academic Pocket Weekly Planner 4 x 6 in. on EuropeanPaper.com

 ~~~

Dated August 2012 to July 2013, Rhodia’s Academic Weekly Planner is the perfect go-to datebook for paper-loving students and professionals. The sewn binding allows the Rhodia WebPlanner to lay flat when open, and the matching elastic closure keeps any loose notes tucked inside when closed.

Printed in crisp grey and orange, the Rhodia 2012-13 Pocket Weekly Planner has the week (Monday through Saturday) on the left, and a large grid area for notes (plus Sunday) on the right. The Large Weekly Planner is slightly different as it has the whole week (Monday through Sunday) on the left, and a whole grid page on the right for notes.

See your plans clearly on the white, 90 gsm, acid-free paper and easily go to the week in progress using the tear-off corners.  Keep track of your essentials with the classy Rhodia 2012-2013 Academic Weekly Planner! See all our Academic Planners on EPC here!

Friday Blogger Tuck-ins

13 Jan

1 –>  Daisy Yellow had a nice post about “Taking Stock” of 2011 with her post showing off every single journal, sketchbook, and scrap notebook pulled out. Check it out here. Also, Laurie over at Plannerisms did a Planner Tally, which we have to admit is impressive! Have you ever done something similar to taking stock of all your planners, notebooks, or journals? If we pulled out every finished and in-use notebook around the office here, it’d get pretty crowded around here!

~~~

2 –> Leigh Reyes has a couple interesting post this week: One with a nod to her art sensei, and another showcasing the Caran d’Ache Grafcube.

~~~

3 –> Colossal has become one of our new favorite art and design blogs. Check out this wonderful fictional landscape creation from Kyle Kirkpatrick we first saw on This is Colossal.

~~~

4 –> Matt  [A Guy's Moleskine Notebook] had a great post outlining the World Book Night 2012 that’s coming up on 4/23/12. It’s an annual celebration “designed to spread a love of reading and books.” If you’re interested in participating, check out his post for the full list of books.

~~~

5 –> For all you ultralights out there (ultralight backpackers, we mean) we came across a neat Rite in the Rain Notebook Hack post by Stick. Which then led us to an even cooler Fisher Space Pen Refill Hack on Brian’s Backpacking Blog. Even if you’re not an outdoorsy type, these hacks are neat to check out to get a sense of the incredibly broad range of what people do with pens, paper, and notebooks.

~~~

6 –> Misty [The Pen Thief] found these adorable Animails, which look eerily similar to one she posted to Limner not too long ago actually. Read all about the flying pig here.

~~~

7 –>  From Dana [Save Snail Mail] we found out about LWA’s Mail Art contest to celebrate their 2,000th member! See Dana’s post on it here, and LWA’s deets about it here.

~~~

8 –> Margana [Inkophile] did a poll last month asking what your favorite ink brand was and not surprisingly Noodler’s came in first! It was pretty heavily weighted toward Noodler, but check out her post to see who came in #2-9.

~~~

9 –> And, of course, we have to do a call-out to Rhodia Drive’s Official 2012 Journal Swap. Long story short, Rhodia Drive will choose 12 people to each receive a large dotgrid webnotebook that the participants will then create art or write on a specified number of pages; then it’s on to another person for another set of pages. This repeats until the book is complete and it’s sent back to the original author. It sounds like a ton of fun so be sure to head over to their blog and sign up!

~~~

10 –> And we’ll leave you for the weekend with a lovely ink&paper video, as first seen on Felt & Wire’s blog.
