I bought a cheap sketchbook from the dollar store in April 2020. Since then I've been using it for rough sketches and basic drawing practice. Despite being really thin, not very good paper, it even holds up alright to a bit of watercolor and ink.
These are some of some of the less garbage-y pages I did between April 2020 and now (June 2021). The sketchbook is still half empty, so hopefully it doesn't take me that long again to finish it.
