Creative Tools

For a while now I've been wanting to branch out past watercolors and try some new things. I don't get out as much to the craft stores to browse (thanks crazy toddler), but I do watch a lot of YouTube. Here are few new tools I would like to try out this year:

Prismacolor Col-Erase pencils

Hikkei Pocket Sign Pen-Extra Fine

Liquid Watercolors

Wacom Tablet

It's pretty much an epic wish list of art supplies. As an illustrator, I want to make sure I don't get stuck in a routine way of doing things. I think branching out and trying new ways of making art will help me grow as an artist.

Have you used any of these? What are your favorite creative tools?


  1. I really want to get those prismacolor pencils. I bought an adult coloring book and having the option to erase something I colored in that I didn't like give me life...

    but also defeats the purpose of coloring!

    I've been wanting to try watercoloring. I will watch Any Tangerine's YT vids and her watercolor writing is amazing!

    1. What a good idea for the coloring books! I got one for Christmas too, but I haven't decided what to use to color in it. I'll have to check out her videos!

  2. I would love to foray back into digital art at some point! While I was in college, and for a few years after, I did lots of digital work, but then my computer died and I couldn't afford a new one and just went back to strictly traditional. I'm also super curious about the Col-Erase pencils!

    1. Weirdly I've never been into digital art, but I've seen some cute videos on how to color in your work with it and that might be a bit easier on my hands. I love your work! xo
