I'm no artist but I like telling stories and writing notes.
These are the pens, pencils, and brushes that have become my favs.
Uni-Ball KuruToga 0.5mm Mechanical Pencil
I like mechanical pencils. This one's wircutter recommended.
Sakuru 6-piece Pigma Micron Ink Pen
These pigment liners are cheap and black AF.
Tombow Dual Brush Pen Art Marker, N15 – Black
A little shading can cover a multitude of sins.
These brushes gave me the confidence to start sharing my silly drawings. It finishes things up nicely.
Most brushes of this type are alcohol-based. This makes them more versatile but requires special paper. These are water-based. So you can use them with regular paper.
They have a set too: Grayscale, 10-pack
TOPO Accessory Bag (small)
I love these bags. I use them for everything.
