I love watching people ink. Here’s cartoonist Stephen Silver inking his version of the Rocketeer using Faber Castell Pitt pens and Microns. Man, his lines are so clean and expressive! That light table is pretty rad. I don’t think you can find those around much these days.

I’ve messed around a little with the Pitt brush pens and like he said in the video, they don’t hold up at all. Very disappointing because when they’ve got a tip, you can get some pretty nice lines going. In general, that’s what I find most disappointing about brush pens that don’t have bristles. When they fray, all they’re really good for is filling spot blacks.
