'love you copic markers' by myra anderson. . .

Yes, there are so many reasons to be inspired as an artist...and here we are at reason #4...Karen and her copic markers!!

When I first saw Karen's work I ran around and gathered every marker and highlighter I had in the house (see above).  I found that the fashion or sketch artist's favorite marker is the 'copic marker' (see Karen's below).  The copic marker is a lovely thing to have...it's double sided and unlike a regular marker it has a brush tip side that produces a rather what I would call painterly quality (Sharpie also has a brush tip marker that I would like to try).  Copics are very expensive (but refillable) so you may want to venture anywhere you can get a discount and like me - buy one set at a time.  Oh how I wish I had all those lovey copic markers!!!!

I am with you, Myra. A whole bunch of Copics would be great. I make to with a middle value gray and a black.
Always get a lick out of your blog. Love your work and your thoughts.

And you did some magic with them Myra! Markers are fun. I would not have a clue how to work with them though. Love Karen's work, especially the black and white.

I could not figure which marker set I wanted to start with. Everyone told me that Copics were the way to go--but I ended up with Tombow. Very happy right now--but a few people have told me you should not be without the Copics! Love your work. Could not figure how to follow this blog though. xo
