Let's be honest: we can all embrace our inner child every once in awhile and resonate with a Crayola marker. After all, Crayolas are one of the first markers we learn to color with. Nostalgia alone is enough to evoke the curiosity in creating really cool letters with a traditional instrument in an untraditional manner. Never mind the easier learning curve Crayligraphy offers compared to the intimidating brush pen.
CRAYOLA MARKERS ARE CHEAP, EASILY ACCESSIBLE AND MOST OF ALL, FUN!
As the interest of hand lettering and calligraphy continue to grow, you might be hastily searching for an instrument that you've seen skilled calligraphers use, tricking you into thinking that their pen could possibly make your learning experience less arduous. Perhaps you've asked the infamous “what pen is that?” question, only to have it unanswered and drown in a pool of hopeless aspirations.
