January ArtSnacks

Sorry this is a little late, squiders! I’ve been feeling a little under the weather the last few days. Nothing serious, but I did take it pretty easy and now am feeling much better.

(Yesterday I basically watched Ghost Adventures: Artifacts or whatever it’s called.)

I know I keep saying I’m done with ArtSnacks, but then I get excited and keep getting it. So here we are. Possibly for the last time, but at this point I’d better stop saying anything before I look too ridiculous.


I remembered to put the materials in the picture this month, unlike last month.

(The snack this month is a dumdum, which continues to not actually be a snack.)

Okay, let’s get into it.

ShinHan Art Touch Liners, Cool Grey Set of 5
So these are ink pens in a variety of sizes/types: .1 mm, .3 mm, .5mm, a chiseled tip, and a brush tip. It’s kind of a silvery gray, as you can see. I outlined the circle in the .1 mm and filled it in with the brush tip, then used the .5mm and the chiseled tip for the words. The color is nice, and I can see using them instead of black ink for effect. The chiseled tip ink erased a bit when I used my eraser, though, so that’s something to remember. No smudging, though. Overall, very nice.

Karin DecoBrush Metallic Marker
Mine is gold, obviously. The paint comes out thick and fast, so it needs a careful hand, but it dries relatively quick. However, I got two gold things last month, so I don’t know that I needed yet more gold. It would be good to paint over things for effect, however. And it didn’t drip paint anywhere I didn’t want, which is also a plus.

Zebra M-350 Mechanical Pencil
I think this is the third mechanical pencil I’ve gotten. Maybe the second. It’s a mechanical pencil. I continue to not see any major differences between these, and at this point I probably do not need any more.

Marvy Uchida Pastel LePen Flex
That’s a mouthful for what it essentially a fine tip marker. Mine is yellow-gold, because if there’s one color family I don’t need any more of, it’s yellow/golds. Seriously, ArtSnacks, send me some purple! Green! Blue! Even orange. No more yellows, no more golds. That being said, this is a really nice marker. I would buy more of these (in more useful colors).

Also, the calligraphy looks decent, if I do say so myself, especially since I haven’t done any in about 10 years or so.

How are you doing, squiders? Any thoughts on art supplies or drawing in general?
