I made a new DISCOVERY a few days ago. I was in the art store and saw a new display for these pens. Is there anything better than a new pen to try out... with a new sketchbook? I don't think so. Click on these photos if you want to get up close and personal with them. You don't have to... but you can if you want.
So here is the poop on the pen. It is made of aluminum. This makes it more expensive (about 6 bucks) than the Micron pens I have been using, but these pens have points that are replaceable and you can get refills for the ink... which is waterproof. So it keeps on going and going.
I have a job that I have just started where I have to draw 100 animals doing various things for a 100 day flip chart. I have never drawn 100 of ANYthing before. The deadline is looming and I just started the job. I am a bit concerned that I won't get the sketches done on time. So I took my sketchbook (with brown recycled paper in it) and my new pen to the quiet library and spent a day doodling each of the animals for the chart. Really quick doodles just to get an idea of what each is doing. I think I will try posting these guys as I do them. So come back each day and you can DISCOVER what new animals are appearing here.
