"Inspiring and honoring creativity"

Blog Hop with Michele Kovack May 5, 2014

Welcome to this week’s Blog Hop with the Tombow Design team! Our guest is Michele Kovack, paper crafter extraordinaire! If you have just come from Jennie’s Blog you are on the right track! If not, you may want to start here.  Make sure to go to the bottom of the post where you will find information on how to win this week’s prize!


I am featuring a Zentangle Inspired Artwork I created using the Dual Brush Pens and some wonderful new permanent markers from Tombow; a Fudenosuke Pen and a Mono Twin Marker. I started by sketching out my design with a 4H Mono Drawing Pencil, the hard lead left light pencil marks that were easy to erase away when finished. The bird was inked using a Fudenosuke Pen, that gave me beautiful varied lines. Imagine a tiny brush tip that, with pressure, changes from from very fine to broad strokes. I then colored the bird using muted colors of Dual Brush Pens, blending the colors with a brush and water.


The black and white design was then added using the MONO Twin Permanent Black Marker, using both the fine and broad tips. I then shaded using B, F and 2B grades of the MONO Drawing Pencils.

Blog Hop_MKThis week’s prize is Xtreme Adhesive, MONO Adhesive Removable and  Aqua Glue.

In order to be entered to win, please comment on all the designer’s projects this week! Your next blog to visit is our honored guest, Michele Kovack!

    Beautiful project! Love the new Fudenosuke Pen – but how is this pronounced. I mastered the pronunciation of Irojiten with your help in person and your video. — maybe another video on Fudenosuke Pen?
