The bare minimum gear is an 11x17 or 11x14 drawing pad for the comic, a notebook to work out plot and dialogue, a metal ruler, and a pen roll like this one or one of these. But also I like to take along a sketchbook for doodles and warmups, a roll of colour pencils, the Hobonichi I'd otherwise forget I have, my Peerless palette, and maybe some Copics. Now that I've been digging out the old-school watercolours too, the bag is getting crowded and heavy and people are giving it the side-eye. And I keep losing my wallet and Metrocard in there and missing the train.
