Free shipping on orders $25 or more in the USA. I LOVE YOU JETPENS! I will definitely order more soon.  

Hooray for penguins!

ART NERD TALK:

So, because I have an insatiable need to try out everything, I picked up this Kuretake Fudegokochi (disposable brush pen) with my last jetpens order, and I really like it. It makes smaller lines with less variation than the refillable pens, but is still brushy so I can maintain my line weight on a smaller scale. It is not waterproof, which has led to some fun experiments with adding water to sections to create washes, and the ink in very, very black…

I mean, you will have to pry my Isabey Kolinsky brushes and Dr. Phillip Martin’s Black Star Ink from my cold dead hands before I stop using them to ink a page, but this is a great sketching medium, and something to look up if you prefer pens to old school brushes. So far, this pen has long and away outlasted any Faber Castel brush pen, and it’s great to do lettering with. It has been working really well on coated paper (like moleskine sketchbooks and slick inking paper) too.

Also used in this doodle: Uniball Signo Broad gel pen, Pentel water brush filled with red sumi ink and a waterbrush with just water to bleed the blacks.

Great doodle! Wonderful example of the versatility of the pens you mentioned.
