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.

"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

"I am the President and Creative Director of Eric Miller Design (ericmillerdesign.com), a user experience and design studio. Our work focuses on usability and the communication of clear messages through intuitive interfaces, logical solutions and attention to detail. Along with our client work, we create a series of products called UX Kits (uxkits.com) that allow designers to create beautiful deliverables for their team and clients.

I've always loved Sakura pens for their quality, going back to when I drew a lot as a kid and owned ONE Micron. Now they come in handy when working on different types of client work, primarily for wireframes and logos. I also use them when developing new products, both digital and physical, for UX Kits. The different weights, and lack of smudging, make for a quick workflow." - Eric Miller

Molly Jessup is a southern artist with a love of home, landscape, and history. Focusing her art on architecture, she takes photos of homes (or any other sentimental location) and turns them into custom illustrations. Spending most of her life in Memphis, Tennessee she developed a deep love of southern living and architecture, and strives to capture the nuances of each home's personality in her art. She now lives and works in North Carolina and spends her days sketching, and fighting her toddler for her Microns. 

"Sakura Micron pens are my go to for all my custom portraits. Working with architecture requires the ability to get into small spaces for tiny details, and these are the best tool for that job. I've been sketching architecture for a decade now and have tried every pen there is. The first time I tried the 005 I knew I had finally found my match. These are the only pens I trust to give me professional quality results every time."
