Intricately Entangled Abstracts

Two drawings I did over the Christmas period using my new Sakura Micron PN pens.  These are different to the usual Micron pens as they have a solid, plastic nib, which is a lot more durable in use.

I’m rather heavy handed with pens, and as much as I love Sakura Microns, Uniball’s Unipins and Faber-Castell’s Pitt pens, their nibs don’t last as long with me as their ink supply does.  I end up chucking the pens way before the ink has run out.

Yes, I could use my Rotring Isographs, but the ink takes a while to dry and I tend to smudge my work.

Previously, I’ve found the Sakura Pigma Sensei in 0.4mm to works well for me, and the nibs are similar to the PN.

The big drawback at the moment to both the Sakura Pigma Sensei and the PN is I can’t order them here in the UK, I have to source these pens either from the USA or from Japan/Hong Kong, so it takes a long while for them to get to me, often with a high shipping fee.

The Sakura Micron PNs are definitely on my shopping list when I need more of them!  I’ll stick to the other brands for the finer line work that appears in my pen and ink drawings from time to time.
