Pentel & Me
I first started using the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen after seeing it in the process videos of Finnish artist Heikala (@heikala on IG). I loved the fluidity in her lines and knew I needed to try out the same pen. This brush pen quickly became one of my go-to tools for linework as I love the variety of lines it can create, how efficient it is for filling in large areas of black, and that it provides a waterproof finish that I can paint or ink over. This pen uses refills making it an eco-friendly choice!
