About illo Sketchbook


    illo is here!

Located in Metro Detroit, we set out to create the perfect sketchbook and we believe that we are 98% there. The original illo Sketchbook is 8in x 8in creating a square drawing surface perfect for any artist at any skill level and now we just launched the humongous illo XL which is 10in x 10in for an unbelievable 100 square inch surface.

With illo sketchbooks you have a quality drawing notebook that you can take with you anywhere.

illo is designed with an elastic enclosure and a stylish ribbon marker, helping to keep your place so you can jump right back to creating. Enjoy the quality of higher priced sketchbooks at a fair price.
