“Forbs The Gnome” asked: “hey I noticed you sketch in this video with my favorite ball point of all time. But they dont make them anymore. I’m curious if you have a new favorite pen these days because I might like it too?”

Thanks for your question “Forbs The Gnome.” Right now I have too favorite drawing pens

Pentel R.S.V.P. Razzle-Dazzle Ballpoint Pen, Medium Line, Black Ink


BIC Velocity Bold Ball Pen, 1.6mm, Black, 12ct (VLGB11-Blk)

I’m actually using the RSVP much more then the BIC Velocity lately. The RSVP comes in really fun colors like bright red and orange (black ink). I really like the BIC Velocity because it has a 1.6 point which is the boldest I’ve seen in ballpoints. The BIC Velocity flows smooth and creamy across the page, where as the Pentel RSVP (they advertise it as a “Med” – I assume this means 1.4 point) is not as bold however allows me to achieve finer details. I suggest trying both of them to see which one you like best. I carry both with me for which ever mood I’m in.

By the way:
