Almost ONE year ago, I posted 3 unique effects I loved achieving using my collection of Tombow Dual Brush Pens. This simple blog post has since gone somewhat viral on Pinterest. I truly can't believe my eyes every time I log into Pinterest, seeing so many people pin this blog post to their "lettering tips" board.... especially since the original blog post was done so early into my lettering journey, thus the quality being very poor in comparison to where I am today.Read More
My love of lettering has translated into a growing love of illustration and watercolor, where I can add in my lettering as a fun detail!
These are my latest and greatest favorites for lettering, watercolor, and illustrating! Have fun checking out this list, and let me know what your favorites are in the comments below!
Tombow Dual Brush Pens:
These seem to be the Holy Grail pen in brush calligraphy circles....and for good reason! They are a quality product at an affordable rate (affordable, BTW, is relative to other art supplies) and they come in a wonderful variety of colors.
Winsor & Newton Travel set - Watercolor
This is an amazing product for any artist who uses watercolor paints, on the go or at home in your creative space! They are a bit pricier for the 'size' in comparison to other watercolor sets, but the quality is incredible, and the teeny-tiny dainty brush that comes with it is a super high quality brush that I can't seem to put down!
As I dive deeper into my 'illustration' exploration journey, I'm finding that I love the look of watercolor + ink. These pens are comparable to Microns, but I like them even better! You can see a full review of them here.
