If you’ve ever tried drawing with a ballpoint pen, you’d know that it’s both challenging and exciting. It can’t be erased so each mark has to be deliberate, but that’s also the exact quality which makes it so exciting to work with–you won’t waste time second-guessing your marks and it will put you more in the “flow”, a state of being in the zone where the only matter of importance is you and what you’re doing, which is doodling, in this case.
That feeling of being in the “flow” of things is how I felt when I doodled using these Titus pens. I wanted to try them out because I actually love drawing with ballpens ever since I studied ballpen drawing in an art workshop by the Father of art workshops Fernando Sena a couple of summers ago. He gave us tips on drawing using ballpoint pens and what I remember most is his tip on drawing using one direction only.
Here’s what I came up with, using Titus Pens. I’m currently out of town right now and this is a clue to where I am right now:
Titus pens come in a variety of shades which makes it perfect for drawing and shading: black, blue, red, yellow, brown, orange, purple, green, sky blue, pink. They write smoothly, but my hands were oily which I think made some parts smudge a bit, heh. I still love how smoothly they wrote though. 🙂
These ballpen artworks were made on-the-spot by youth all over the Philippines using Titus pens. Jaw-dropping and super inspiring:
Ballpen party! My fave would have to be the Titus OMG! Retractable w/grip (in the photo below, the violet and pink one at the middle) because of the rubbery grip, since I’m heavy-handed.
