      Decent pen which is suitable for drawing

      Being an illustrator, I've got a ridiculous amount of pens scattered around the place, ranging from permanent markers and fountain pens, to specialist sketching thingies. One of my favourites has to be the 'Pentel Hybrid Gel Grip DX Rollerball Pen' which, apart from being a bit of a mouthful to say, is a really decent drawing tool. These pens come in a range of different colours - but seeing as I only use the white one, this is what my review will focus on.

      I use the pen in some of my watercolour paintings instead of applying white paint. Yes, it is perhaps cheating, but the pen's fine nib means that I can be far more accurate in areas of detail than I could with a paintbrush, and once dried, the ink is slightly transparent and almost indistinguishable from paint. The pens come in a number of different nib thicknesses, with the most popular being the 1.0mm size, which is also probably the most suitable for handwriting.

      The pen is designed with comfort in mind, and features a rubberised grip which allows you draw for quit some time without your fingers getting sore. The pen also has a transparent body, meaning you can see inside and work out when it's about to run out.

      The pen writes in a lovely smooth manner - although when it has not been used for a while you may need to do a bit of scribbling in order to get the ink flowing. The white ink looks great on coloured paper (especially black), and as such is great for use on homemade Christmas and Birthday cards on non-white paper.

      Each of the pens cost just over £2 from stationary suppliers, which is quite reasonable considering the fact that they last a long time - highly recommended :)
