What's in My Toolkit

Click on the photo to see a current list of my favorite sketching and watercoloring tools. I try to update this list often, but if you have any questions about any particular products you have noticed me use, feel free to contact me.

I'm also constantly reviewing new products. Many make the cut; many don't. You can see all of my reviews here.


Artist Supplies

My favorite place to shop for art supplies is Cheap Joe's, and I'm very proud to serve as a CJ Ambassador. I happily support and promote this amazing, locally-owned company.

I'm an affiliate partner with Amazon, and the convenience of shopping at this site is often hard to beat. (You can learn more about SJ's affiliate policy here.)

No matter where you buy your art supplies from, always choose quality over quantity. Here's why.


Calligraphy Supplies

For calligraphy supplies, John Neal Bookseller is my go-to resource for most of my needs, and I'm proud to be an affiliate partner. To support this blog via JNB, click here to begin shopping (you don't have to purchase items on this page), and thank you!

Another good resource is Paper Ink Arts. I am not affiliated with PIA, but I am a member of their reward program. Clicking on this link to shop helps support this website, so thanks!

Fountain Pens & Inks

John Neal Bookseller carries my absolutely favorite fountain pen, the Lamy Al-Star, along with a wide variety of inks and papers. (Just make sure the ink you choose is compatible with fountain pens!) If JNB doesn't have what you are looking for, I have one word for you...

Goulet. I'm not affilated in any way with this amazing, family-run company, but I highly recommend them because of their fantastic customer service and an extremely wide variety of items to choose from. My only issue with this company is that I'm tempted to spend way too much every time I shop there!
