Letraset Promarkers

I just got my Rich Tones Letraset Promarkers. These sets are very well put together for a glorious palette that’s ready to go. I particularly enjoy Moss against and over Maroon, and Marine is incredible too.

The pens are better than I could have imagined: smooth, bold, easily layered…it’s like drawing with watercolours but with serious precision.

My usual attitude to pens is the skinnier the better but I actually love the chiselled fat end best. It swoops big swathes of colour over the page but gives a really sharp edge with the very point. I wasn’t going for dense colour but I’m sure these pens are more than capable of completely even and consistent coverage.

I love these colours together; deep glowing autumn tones that blend beautifully. I decided to just play with how the colours interacted, then inked up my great grandfather’s office stamps for some texture. I also couldn’t resist using my new sheet of transfers in University Roman, which is such a glorious type.

My dad introduced me to Letraset a long time ago, when he discovered a huge collection of transfers from his art college days. They always remind me of him, and the stamps he passed on to me are one of my most precious possessions.
