The Sendak Artist Roll is designed with the nomadic artist in mind. This treasure carries your current arsenal of tools with you from the studio to coffee shop to en plein air.
In the Kent family, the Sendak has become an interactive centerpiece. Placed in the center of a table or picnic blanket, a group of drawers and dreamers gathers ’round. A session begins and ends with the Sendak, filled with a bouquet of colors, brushes and pens. As its namesake Maurice Sendak wrote, “Let the wild rumpus start!” And get messy – because clean-up is easy!

I am loving the large capacity this gem gives me. It makes me smile every time I use it and is getting even better as it takes on my personality. My favorite piece!

I love this roll. It is so inspiring to use and feels durable and well made. Since receiving it, it has gone everywhere with me and even keeps me company on my desk. The color is absolutely gorgeous. The strap can be a little annoying and in the way if you have to move around at all while painting on the go, but I always clip it to one of the back pockets and that makes it much less of an issue.
- KTKate T.Verified BuyerRated 3 out of 5 stars5 months agoReviewingThe Sendak Artist RollMade for thin pens, and too short for short-handled brushes
This is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship, but the design isn't there yet. My standard, short-handled watercolor brushes (from mainstream brands like Princeton, Grumbacher, ) did not fit. They are too long for the protective flap to cover them securely. Closing the Sendak around them bent the bristles and was very awkward looking. So, if you have similar brushes you're hoping to protect in transit, you would need to cut them down to size (apparently Peg & Awl has a video about this that they can direct you to), but this seems unnecessary when there are alternative cases on the market that are the right size.. So, I needed to return the Sendak. Hoping that Peg & Awl redesign the Sendak to make a version for short-handle brushes --- and maybe even another version for long-handle brushes. Or maybe offer a complete artist pack with both sized Sendaks for painters? And when they do, I'll be first in line!

In my Sendak I carry a tin of watercolours, a P&A sketchbook, a ruler, two fountain pens, 24 watercolour pencils, 1 graphite pencil, 1 technical pen, 2 paint brushes, 1 water brush, and 1 eraser. Oh and I forgot to include my pencil sharpener. I love my Sendak!
