Glasgow Self-employed illustrator and designer
- Although marketed as a CD marker, I use these pens for drawing on paper.
I am an illustrator, and think this is the best drawing pen ever!
A felt-tip style point. Very controllable.
Doesn't bleed. At all.
It's not like most CD markers, which are just like narrow permanent markers. I think this must be a pigment marker.
Really black and opaque.
Is not expensive.
Most important - writes over tippex without smudging - doesn't even get paler if you use a rubber to get rid of pencil lines.
- If you allow it to get warm (say, by lying in the sun) it will dry up permanently.
Ditto if you leave the lid off, even for a tiny length of time.
As I use it primarily as a drawing pen, I would like if there were a variety of thicknesses.
