One of my goals for 2015 is to sketch more. I’ve always loved art, whether it was admiring other’s work or creating my own. Over the past year I have been taking online classes through Sketchbook Skool. I found out about it before the first class and I’ve taken all three (plus currently their Bootkamp) that they have offered. They have inspired me to capture the everyday. They also inspired me to try new materials which has me on the hunt for the ‘perfect’ sketchbook as well as new products.
I loved June’s Artsnacks box, there were several items I had never seen before and they were so much fun to play with!
Faber-Castell PITT Artist Big Brush Pen
I LOVE this pen. It’s about three times the size of the regular Faber-Castell PITT Artist pen, and has a super versitale brush which can create all sorts of sizes. Also, the strokes are so buttery against the paper. It has a brilliant lightfast grade which gives the pigmants a vibrant color forever. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this pen and will be purchasing it again when it runs out!
K-12 by Krink
This marker pen made my day. It was developed by a street artist in San Francisco. It is a paint marker, is fun to use and is such a neat addition to my sketch. I used it here for a little pop of color.
Caran d’Ache Grafik Pencils
This unique HB pencil was imported from Switzerland. It clearly has the Swiss quality and the pop-art design on it is so fun.
KUM 4 in 1 Sharpener
My new favorite pencil sharpener. It accommodates 7, 8, 10 and 11 pencils, and of course a catch-all barrel to collect all of the shavings.
*I also ordered the ArtSnacks Travell Collection box, a one time special box which has full size products (of unknown status) that are perfect for traveling. It will ship the week of July 6th so I’ll be posting about it soon afterward!
You can order it until July 1st, check it out here: http://www.artsnacks.co/travel-collection/
