What do I draw with?
For a while, I’ve been asked what I usually draw with. The short answer: whatever I find around, from sticks, to chalk… to ketchup. That’s the result of being raised by what my sister calls “pioneering hipsters” — I’ll eventually post something expanding on that.
But for now, here’s what I carry around with me. There’s no endorsements, no magic tricks, no deep philosophy to any of these pens, pencils, or brushes; they just seem to work well for me.
The only thing I am big fan of, is of reducing waste to a minimum, hence the dominance of refillable pens, mechanical pencils and converters & adapters… even for pens that may not be intended to be refilled (blame the parents for that, too).
I still need to figure out what to do about pencils/pens like the Crayola Twistables, which happen to be great pencils to work with, but are one sad waste of resources (once you’re done with the lead — which goes by fast, you’re left with a hard plastic casing that is hard to reuse :( ). If you have any ideas, do share!
