Shel Nuth grew up in the foothills of North County San Diego, and currently resides in San Francisco. Graduating with a degree in Economics, art has served mainly as a pastime and hobby. Her passion for drawing started during early childhood as her mom, artist and teacher, always encouraged freedom of expression and creating. Working with mainly pen, ink and watercolor, Shel's art celebrates spaces in between; the absence of color and form highlight the soul of the subject matter.

" A lot of my work is small and the Sakura pens allow me to get the level of detail I need. My favorite, which I always have a few on hand, is the 005. It is my go to for fine animal fur lines and face shading; I haven't found one I like more!" -Shel Nuth

"My name is Ghaith, also known as artdoodle9 on Instagram. I stay busy working as an architectural engineer in Philadelphia. I spend my downtime exploring cool spots in the city with my girlfriend, taking our puppy for walks, and of course; drawing. I love creating simple, eye catching illustrations using Micron pens to share them with the world on my Instagram account. I generally experiment with black and white ink minimalist illustrations with line pattern/dotting details.

I love using the Micron ink pens because they allow me to add very fine details that take my illustrations to the next level. The different line widths with these pens are perfect for outlining and detailing beautiful yet simple illustrations. Also, I am a lefty and I never have to worry about smudging when I illustrate with Micron pens because they dry instantly. My personal favorite nib size to work with is 005!" -Ghaith Yacoub

I am Zach Hsieh, also known as zhcomicart on Instagram and YouTube. I found my passion for art in 2015 and had a clear vision and goal of becoming a great comic book artist. Ever since then, I have dropped everything I have to pursue my dream. I love telling exciting stories using pictures as well as drawing superheroes and buildings. I use pencils and inks to create my drawings. I live in NYC right now refining my skills and learning something new everyday. I enjoy interacting with my fans on Instagram and posting videos on YouTube. I like to make tutorials to teach others as well as share aspects of my life in the form of short vlogs and talks.

I feel like as a comic book artist a lot of people use inking nibs to do their work but for me I never got used to it because I am used to drawing my lines using a pencil. I love using microns because there are so many different sizes and it is much easier to use. Sometimes I color with color markers too and microns are one of the only pens that don't bleed much.

Lydia Fenwick, also known as "Lyfe Illustration," is a recent graduate of Laguna College of Art and Design. She is a professional illustrator living in Southern California with her panther chameleon sidekicks. Her favorite mediums are ink and watercolor, and her work focuses on the aesthetic bonds between women and nature. Starting in 2018 she will be returning to LCAD to teach a class on social media and marketing for the artist called "Artist as Entrepreneur". 

"I have been using Sakura Micron pens for longer than any other art supply in my arsenal. It is the one type of pen that I can consistently rely on for fluid, crisp, and waterproof lines. My Micron line-work never loses it's sharpness when I watercolor over it and never fades over time. I especially adore the 005 pens for my super detailed lines. There simply isn't a better pen for the job!" - Lydia Fenwick

I am a Brooklyn-based illustrator and art director. My style can probably be summed up as pen and ink meets mild OCD. I love the simplicity of drawing in ink and the challenge of rendering fine detail with a single medium. Architecture and New York City are my go to subjects as it offers so much inspiration to draw. I’m currently wrapping up a 3 year long project called 1,011 Drawings (instagram @mister_vi). It began as a way to get back into practice after a long hiatus from art. Now it’s a way for me to connect with fellow artists and people from all over the world. 

I’ve been using micron pens as long as I can remember. The consistency of the ink and how it rarely ever smudges always makes these pens great to use. I love the finer tips like 005 as it helps me get even finer details. And now the recently discovered 003 is sort of blowing my mind a bit.  -Vi Luong
