I’ve been testing pens for a while now to use in my illustration work, and they have been somewhat of a disappointment…… until I found these.  Thanks so much to my Pinners Conference classes for suggesting them!  They are a game changer!  I mentioned these in my workshop last night and wanted to make sure I posted a link for anyone else interested in trying them out.
