I picked up a selection of needle point and ultra fine point pens from Uniball to use as part of the experiment Jane and I are conducting for the next issue of Put it on Paper as well as a regular blog feature. I can’t wait to tell you more about it. I had planned on using them ONLY for the experiment, but, well, I’ve gotten addicted. Damn these things are crazy fun. I could use my rapidocraft pens but these are so much smoother and I can use them at an angle, which means I can sketch more comfortably. The ink is gel style so it doesn’t feather, spread or bleed. I get a perfect smooth line. Better yet, it’s pigmented, fade resistant and waterproof when dry. Which means I can slosh watercolors on it ASAP.
I think I’ve died and gone to ink heaven.
I’m pretty stoked.
Within this post are a selection of drawings done with the Uniball Signo bit 0.18 and Signo DX in 0.28 and 0.38. (With a smattering of brush pen and watercolor added, because I can’t restrain myself.)
