I admit it, I forgot to do last month's Sketchbox. And since the new one came a few days ago, we'll go ahead and skip it anyway and just do the new one. Here's what my daughter got:
Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real Brush set ($13.95): Unlike many "brush" pen, the Zig Clean Color Real Brush pen has a genuine bristle tip that lets you create marks of any width--from broad strokes to fine lines. Filled with a waterbased dye that is odorless and xylene-free, these pens are easy to blend. Both portable and versatile, they're great for plain air work as well as manga and cartooning.
Kuretake Zig Brush #55 ($4.50): This double-sided hard and soft felt tip brush pen from Kuretake gives you the best of both worlds for your artwork. Great for outlining and coloring in art or creating different scenery effects.
Higgins India Ink Pump Marker ($5.95): Higgins India Ink like you've never seen it before, in a pump action marker! Ideal for use on papers and boards, Higgins Pump Markers deliver a water-resistant matte finish and have a 1 mm nib that can be removed for refilling.
Pentel Fude Touch Brush Sign Pen ($2.99): Create expressive drawings and beautiful hand lettering with this felt tip Pentel Fude Touch Sign Pen. It features a durable brush tip that offers good control while drawing varying line widths. The water-based dye ink flows smoothly. This pen is a unique addition to any artist's arsenal.
