Hi Adina,
Re: holding one’s sketchbook, I used to lean mine (hardbound for longer sketches, studies and finished drawings and spiral bound for timed gesture and expression sketches – both types 8 1/2 x 11″) against my knees and a table to get the right angle. Very impractical and uncomfortable. Then I found a bamboo “laptop” desk (that I think is meant to be used in bed). 2/3s of the top can be angled up and the static 1/3 is great for holding my tablet for references. I set it (with the legs closed) on a small computer table for drawing in the evening, though it could probably be used on a desk with a proper chair. See pic attached – if it works. (For a comfortingly capable background listening/watching show I recommend catching up on the Great British Bake Off or listening to random science podcasts, but each to their own). 🙂
