Magic Pens


(Click on the pictures if you’re having trouble reading the text)



Jonathan was rather horrified that I drew someone in a Smiths T-shirt (it has been his long-standing policy to rib me for liking The Smiths) but I bought a paper kit-set zombie off a woman in a ‘The Queen is Dead’ T-shirt yesterday. Then I bought a cowboy shirt off a man with a Joy Division tattoo on his inside arm. It’s Jonathan’s birthday tomorrow – hence my spend-thriftiness.

In regards to the people I drew, Otto insisted that I watched Ben Ten with him this afternoon, so the Smiths girl is Gwen and the two guys in the background are Kevin and Ben. You can see more of Dylan Horrocks’ work over here (he is the leading-light in NZ comics, and he’s famous internationally to boot) and if you too want to buy a magical pen, you can do so here.

    I’m with you on the Smiths! Thanks for the hookup on the pens website. Have been using these fabbo brush tip pens; Staedtler Mars Graphic 3000 duos, found in an enormous box set at DNA, and they’re all gradually running out. Wish they were still making them…

    I have yet to find my ideal pen but I love your confident experimentation with your brush pens. I’ve been thinking about getting some for ages – Inky Phalangies recommended them – though I love ye olde brush and wash….must take the plunge and get some, me thinks, and stop typing pseudo ye olde phrases…
