New Pen and Ink Supplies

A friend gave me a $40 giftcard at Michael’s for my birthday, and I found a 40% off entire purchase coupon, which allowed me to get a lot for my money. I got a set of four sepia Micron pens, a set of three black Copic pens, some colored pencils and a pad of pen and ink drawing paper all for the grand total of $2.15. I tried out the Copic pens here, sketching some brussels sprouts in my new Stillman & Birn sketchbook (Epsilon series). I had purchased the sketchbook some time ago and I was saving it for a special occasion.

The pens are pretty good, although I wonder how long they will retain the fine tip. The package stated that they were waterproof as well as Copic-proof (alcohol based, I think). What I really love is the sketchbook. I haven’t tried their other paper surfaces, but am so impressed with the one that I have that I can see myself switching to this brand permanently.
