A Tuesday drawing with my all time favorite:

Do you use all the different sizes or just stick with the 005?

Where do you buy them from?

I just started using these pens, and I love them! But it would be a lot easier if I could find a way to buy them in bulk, instead of individually.

Micron pens are wonderful! I've been using them since design school. :)

I just bought some Micron pens (my favourite is 02), new paintbrushes and a couple new tubes of watercolour paint this week from an online art supply store. Smiled the whole time I unpacked my parcel. Similar happy feeling to when I'm in an art supply store. Oh yes, and I also bought a bottle of FW acrylic artists ink thanks to your recommendation(I tried the Liquitex version but it wasn't opaque enough) And now, with your lovely inspiration, I'm off to paint. :)

For some reason all the microns I've been buying and been dying on me quick, but I love them so much it's hard not to buy them!!

I find Micron pens to be infuriating. I love the line, the ink and the results I get from them. But they dry up much too quickly.

Would it be too outrageous to suggest you start a rubber stamp line of stamps?

Love your stuff.
