The most important thing.

What is your most important artist tool? Is there something you can’t live without in your studio?

My most important thing is my pens. I have accumulated many over time and have experimented here and there. I think all artists owe it to themselves to keep trying new artists tools whenever possible.

As a pen and ink artist I always check out “my area” of the art store. I try new brands of inks and pens regularly. Especially now that I am drawing so often and regularly.

Here are some of the pens I have tried:


Koh-i-noor Radiograph Buy Here


Sakura Pigma Micron Buy Here


Prismacolor Premier Illustration Marker Sets Buy Here


Artist’s Loft™ Illustration Pen Set, Black  Buy Here

They range in price. Some you can buy individually and others are typically in a set. I use all of these regularly. Right now I am leaning towards the Prismacolor marker pens. I also always go back to my radiograph. It may be my favorite but it has to be cleaned and maintained more.

Hope this gives some insight into my tools!
