"I use Strathmore® smooth bristol for every project that comes my way. The smooth surface takes ink beautifully and my underlying pencils erase away without smudging or tearing any of the paper. The bristol is also a really bright white, which gives everything great contrast and an automatic vibrancy. The board can take all kinds of artistic abuse, like marker, watercolor, gouache and colored pencil and still stay intact, which is rare for illustration paper that's not mounted to a board. It's pretty hefty stuff! I really love this bristol and can go through an entire pad of the 9" x 12" board in one sitting just sketching out ideas!"
