For plein air painters who like to travel light, the portable, compact Guerrilla Painter ThumBox has it all.
Reminiscent of the original "cigar box" pochade boxes used for quick outdoor painting by 19th and early 20th century painters, the original ThumBox included a special thumbhole in the bottom so it could be hand-held while painting — hence the name, "Thumbox."
Now featuring a slimmer, lighter, simplified design, the ThumBox Version 2.0 is easier than ever to transport. Based on an ultra-light pochade box that Guerrilla Painter Carl Judson built to use while doing volunteer work in the back country of Bolivia in the 1990s, the ThumBox Version 2.0 still includes the high-quality features and accessories that made the original ThumBox so popular.
The ThumBox Version 2.0 holds two wet 6" × 8" panels (1/8" or 1/4" thick) fully enclosed inside its lid. The raised front lip that offers this protection also serves as a built-in hand rest or "mahl stick." The lid bracket locks in any position within a full 180° range and is easily adjusted using only one knob.
Other popular carryovers from the original ThumBox include a slide-out palette, a storage compartment, and panel and canvas adapter clips. The ThumBox Version 2.0 is pre-drilled to accommodate the Guerrilla Painter Universal Tripod.
The ThumBox Version 2.0 measures 9"L × 7"W × 3"D and weighs 1.5 lb.
