Day 4 #marchmeetthemaker: Tools!
I use a variety of different things depending on what Iâ€™m doing. My staples are pencil for sketches and preliminary work, sharpener or cutter to sharpen said pencil, and technical pen for inking, If Iâ€™m feeling fancy with my inking, Iâ€™ll use the Pelikan Graphos pen (circa 1935) that I inherited from my parents, which they used in college. Wacom pen and tablet for digital work, brushes for painting and creating textures with watercolor. When Iâ€™m drawing in my sketchbook I use markers, colored pens, gel pens, etc. Some years ago I also made myself bamboo dip pens – I donâ€™t use those as often but theyâ€™re in the picture because I want to use them more.
