One of the great things about sharing our products with the world has been seeing all the clever ways artists are making use of them.

Mike Daikubara @mikedaikubara first opened my eyes to the possibility of storing more than paints in the Pocket Palette by nestling in a sponge he uses to wipe his brush. Check out the demo I did with Mike last October.

Erik Rothrock @rothrockart has the tiniest set of colored pencils that tuck right inside a large pan, as well as two cute brushes that he cut down and sanded to fit alongside a lead holder.

And I really love seeing how Linda @lks_22 uses the magnet to keep her nibs in place!

So clever. I'm so inspired by the innovation I see all the time from our customers, and it's a great reminder to continue to think outside the box (or *inside* the palette).
