Absolutely love it!
Comments about Bruce Blitz Blitz Translucent Drawing Board:
I create one of a kind watercolor greeting cards and have been having issues with my neck from working on a flat desk surface as I sketch and paint. This drawing board allows me to elevate my work so that it's much easier on my neck. I love that it's portable so that I take it out on the lanai to work.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The transparent area isn't quite transparent enough for standard paper. This product has no light to enhance its abilities and using a light with it is difficult due to dimensions.A bit pricey in my opinion for the cheap finish and 50% opaque screen.
Exactly what I needed.

I like it!
from Athol, MA
I use this board for drawing patterns for my leather work. The board also works great when I copy large leather patterns by hand instead of going down to Staples to use their large copy machine. For what I use it for there is nothing I dislike about it.

Great support; smooth surface is
I use this for illustration. It is sturdy, and durable. The smooth light box feature is fantastic, without it being a cheap light box. I draw my own characters and have been able to create duplicates/trace my work even through 60lb paper.My favorite features are the adjustable incline, smooth translucent surface, and durability. I recommend also buying the portfolio case in the size of your board. Fantastic.

Not just for drawing
from Riverside, CA
I bought this several years ago. I'm neither an artist nor an architect. I'm a rare book cataloger and I use this in data entry to prop up stacks of papers in front of my monitor. I also use it for propping books. The only thing I wish it had is a small rail at the bottom to keep stacks from sliding off (can't always use the clip), but a strip of cardboard & some tape work fine. In all, I'd say this is the best $$ I've spent in a long time, and a colleague bought one on my recommendation.

I Bought Mine Some Time Ago
By A late-blooming artist
from Calera, Alabama
I bought mine when I first saw it in the DB catalogue a few years back. I like that I can use the translucent part with a lamp to copy my sketch to my watercolor paper. It's portable and not too large to transport. No real complaints, although I will say I needed something to hold my sketchbook in place, and the clip wasn't convenient. So I bought a piece of semi-flat moulding, painted it white, and glued it to the bottom edge of the board! Works like a charm. Whenever I wear it out, I would buy another Blitz Translucent Drawing Board.

Great for Desk Top Drawing
By Lakeside Artist
from Austin, TX
Since I don't have a drawing table, I use an old drafting board propped with wooden blocks to provide me with an angular drawing surface. However,since the Blitz Translucent Board arrived, it has replaced the wooden one.The Blitz has several advantages: 1. Its height can be varied as necessary; 2. It holds the paper in place but I usually don't use this feature since it could possibly damage the paper; 3. One can trace an image by placing a light under the board or one could check one's placement of eyes, etc., on a freehand drawing; 4. It is portable; 5. The drawing surface is very smooth. The Blitz board is a asset to my drawing.
