Thanks so much to you all! Lots of fuel for thought...still haven't settled on a solution, although I am starting to lean toward the projector as it would be terrific to turn it on and off, not to mention the precision of being able to use a digitally-built grid instead of measuring it all out by hand like I have in the past. Time to start trolling ebay... :)

Thanks again! Molly

hi molly,

if no one has suggested this already: one possible workflow could be to tape a pre-drawn grid to the back of your vellum and use a sheet of glass or plexi as a combination light table / drawing board. you can turn the backlight on and off at will to view the grid or hide it.

Hello, I have a quick drawing question--I do large-scale charcoal drawings and typically start by drawing a grid to help with proportions etc...however when the drawing is done I've run into trouble in the past being able to fully make those grid lines disappear in areas where the white of the paper remains. 

Is there a type of pencil (or eraser, or technique) that anyone can recommend that erases exceptionally well?  I'm using Borden/Reilly 116 Sketch vellum, a fairly heavy paper.

Thanks as always, Molly
