For this Novelty Pen series I was completely seduced by this 10 colour unicorn pen. I think pretty much everyone had a pen like this as a kid.
Kasey Golden did a video recently where she did some epic pieces with one. I’m super impressed with what she did, but please don’t expect my results to be anywhere near as good.
This type of pen can come with anything from 2 to 20 different colours. This one has 10, and when I swatched them out they looked fine. Like not-very-expensive biros. Which is what they are.
They work well enough for drawing, but I wasn’t sure how they’d fare with colouring. And I definitely didn’t have Kasey’s patience, so instead I got to doodling. Starting, naturally, with the traditional monster.
Followed up by a little line doodle…
…And then more monsters.
They aren’t the smoothest lines because the cheap pens kept clogging and needing scribbling to start again.
This is the last in my Novelty Pen series. In theory. I’m sure I’ll come across other pens in the future, but I’ll probably just post those sporadically, instead of saving them up for a series.
Are there any pens you’ve seen that you’d like me to try?
