SAKURA Pigma Micron Pens — my go to pen for accuracy, performance, and preservation. Waterproof, quick drying, and fade resistant. Permanent, pigment-based ink will not bleed or run. A variety of nib sizes. This six pack is a great place to start at a reasonable price.
Staedtler Watercolor paint set — highly pigmented, brilliant colors in 12ml paint tubes. I’ve been very pleased with the quality.
Capturing the moment just got easier with Koi water color field sketch kits. This portable watercolor set has traveled the U.S. with me and proven valuable to have handy.
If you’ve been searching for thick index cards, here they are. SUPER THICK Index Cards, 4×6 (also available in other sizes). 100 cards per pack, 100 lb., bright white, unruled, acid-free, 97 white, can be mailed as a post card.

For a brain-teasing good time, take a break and play a game of Rook. A fast moving, competitive card game. Just when you think you’ve got it all together, the wild Rook can land and screw up all your plans. —Very much like real life.
Watercolor sampler by Daniel Smith! I love the quality and richness in the colors.
Everyone needs a date stamp and the best kind to have is the one that makes the noise. The kerchunk when you stamp it down. This self-inking date stamp fills this need. The Heavy Duty 2020 is well worth it!
Oxford at Hand Dot Grid Index Card Can be used horizontally or vertically-perfect for sketches or diagrams. Colorful edges, premium weight cardstock, 3” x 5” 50 per pack. Dot grid rule on one side.
Derwent Water Soluble pencils, set of 6 in a metal tin.
Use them wet or dry. A soft, extra wide graphite core sweeps smoothly across paper for a fast, even lay down, yet is equally suitable for more detailed work.
I LOVE these pencils! They add a softness to my drawings and just the right amount of shading.
