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!!!!
