Portable painting easel (3.5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
This is an essential for any traveling artist. This is a five foot long pole with a spike at one end and a place for a scroll or piece of paper at the opposite end. The spike is designed to be easily driven into the soil to hold itself up right. On top of the easel there are two clamps that can be adjusted four different lengths and sizes of paper, they hold the paper tight enough to be written or painted on. The easel is also fitted with a leather strap that allows it to be carried on your back.
