Interested in creating intricate typography or colorful accents for your drawings? The Zig Memory System Brushables Marker is perfect for those fine details. You’ll notice that the colors on each side are different: one tip is a true color pigment brush, while the lighter tip is a pigment tint brush. This marker will provide clean lines and bold features with every stroke.

FORESTCHOICE CARPENTER PENCILS 

Carpenter pencils are not just for the wood shop anymore. The ForestChoice Carpenter Pencil is one of the best kept secrets in the drawing world. To use, hold the pencil closer to the tip (on its flat end side) using an overhand grip (see diagram). This will create a thicker sketch line–good for shading, carving out shadows, and gesture drawing in sketchbook.
