Few things beat a classic white tee. Throw it on with a pair of jeans, cork wedges, a long necklace, and you’re good to go just about anywhere.

Welcome to the world of ink art!! This will be an introductory article showing you some different types of line and shading techniques that are the basics for most ink drawings.

The first markers are the high end and professional double ended markers from Prismacolor I've heard a good amount of feedback and read reviews on what people think about these art markers and the results are very positive, with a combination of broad tip and fine tips these are very versatile markers for drawing with.
