How the Etchr Art Satchel Makes Urban Sketching a Breeze!

Hi there, thanks for stopping by!

We want to delve into how we designed our Etchr Art Satchel to solve some of the major pain points faced by urban sketch artists!

As a professional Concept Artist, I loved taking a break and getting out and about with my drawing but often found the logistical process a pain. Fumbling around in my re-purposed bag for my art gear, setting up my work station and the arm fatigue and lack of mobility were all pain points that I sought to address with the Etchr Art Satchel.

We think we've come up with the answer! Read on and checkout some shots of Jaida with our latest prototype below :)

To reduce arm fatigue and provide a stable drawing platform on the go, we created "supported mode". Our bag can work as a mobile drawing platform in both portrait and landscape format, either standing or sitting, without the aid of a tripod.

Tired of lugging around an easel? For added stability and an instant workstation our bag easily carries and attaches to a quick release camera tripod to function as a work platform for both physical and digital mediums - think drawing and painting. Also works perfectly for life-drawing sessions.

When you're back at your desk, if you feel like referencing some images or a little more privacy while you work then you may find our "Laptop" mode useful. It sets up in seconds and breaks down just as fast so you're not wasting valuable art study time!

Used to carrying two bags around when you've got your art gear? The Etchr Art Satchel has specialist art tool carry capabilities but also expands to offer plenty of room for more general items like books, laptops and digital tablets.

The storage and carry capability means that now you can carry your everyday gear alongside your art supplies and tools in the one bag - think everyday carry / overnight bag doubling as a specialized artist toolbox : )

We went for a stylish yet adaptable look which we think makes our bag the perfect companion for work, travel and play.
