Was looking for some inspiration for doodling and came across Laura Harms’ website on Zentangle. She’s a certified Zentangle teacher who gives a weekly challenge, so I thought to give it a try. I’ve never taken a class, but I find the pattern creation relaxing. This week’s current challenge requires the use of two specific types […]
The main difference between a 0.1mm tech pen and a Sailor Saibi Togi is the consistency of line width. A tech pen will give you the same line consistently. With a Saibi-Togi nib, a change in angle, pressure, or nib direction changes the line. Did I like the experience? Yes, I did. It felt more […]
