In my sketchbook: copic marker + lamy safari pen

I've been eyeing Copic markers for the longest time, but they are just so darn expensive!! Hobby Lobby had some on clearance so I decided to treat myself to one to see if they really are that wonderful. So far, they are!


I've been using them alongside my Lamy Safari pen and the pairing has made for some new twists on old doodles.
