This is another one of my favorite purchases. It's not my most glamorous tool, but it gets used every single day. This acts as a second set of hands, enabling my first set to do more engaging things (like paint). It can hold a book of almost any size open to the right page with minimal adjustment. However, I most often use it in conjunction with my spare magnet board which holds all of my reference in place.
Here's the stand in "action" next to my easel. You can also see page 13 of Mythos: Captain America in it's unfinished stage.
In addition, the stand folds flat and can be transported in a 3-ring binder. Because of this feature, I now bring it to all of my conventions to hold my portfolio.
