"I have been using Sakura Micron pens in all my freelance commissions and personal work for the last two years. I have tried other brands, but ever since I used my first Sakura I have been a loyal customer. I started with a few pens and now I have a desk drawer full of them organized by size! My favorites are the Microns in 005 and 01 and Pigma FB. I find Sakura's rich black ink to be a great neutral black and the ink doesn't budge on my watercolor paper which is so important since I watercolor over my line drawings. The pen nibs are strong but flexible, and have constant ink flow on the hot press watercolor paper. I also used Sakura Micron pens to illustrate all my popular children's books I created for Laurence King Publishing."
