Drawing Pens and Sketch Book Stationary
Drawing Pens and Sketch Book Stationary, I confess I like to collect a wide range of stationery. I also use a lot of what I purchase and find in my illustration work as well. The stationery I use to maximum value is my Rotring Pens. These are traditional draftsmen fine liner pens which are made by a German Brand, Rotring. These particular pens have a fine metal nib, which ranges from ultra-fine nibs to a thick nib. The thinnest nibbed Rotring pen I own is 0.28mm and the largest is 1mm thick. I have owned these particular pens since I was 16 years old back in 1994 when I was enrolled in a Graphic design course at Newham School of Further education. My design Tutor Frances Bloomfield was explicit we learn how to draw and learn traditional skills. This was the era when Apple Macs and desktop publishing would usher in a new era of Design.
Further photos showcase more stationary material such as inks, pencils, pens, sketchbooks, paintbrushes, and Promarkers. I use much of these drawing materials in my work. I draw and create everything I need to on to paper to a nearly finished state. Once all my hand-drawn assets are created, its all scanned into photoshop at 400 dpi. I work at higher res, which allows me to scale up just in case the client requires me to, its all ways a good idea to have your bases covered. Once all my illustrated assets are scanned, I compose and finish the illustration for a client within Photoshop.
