So why am i a collectables toy dealer and i am writing a article about a pencil? good question!
Well here at eterniacollectables.co.uk as well as selling our own retro toys and collectibles we search for items i highly recommend everyone buys,
Most people are very suprised when they meet me, that i do not collect action figures i sort of do not have to as every corner of my life is filled with them, bet i have a box of figures under my desk right now to sort and list on our website,
I used to collect GI Joe and Masters of the Universe toys but i don't anymore,
I am unsure if you can call me a collector of pens and stationary i maybe just biggest hoarder ever!
I buy pens, paints craft making supplies all the time i have shelves upon shelves all neatly in pots, many never even opened just stored on racks,
This brings me to this product by Rotring i think my addiction with stationary basically started with one of these pencils many a year ago,
Basically my art teacher whilst everyone else was using standard 2B pencils my art teacher noticed i drew a little different to most people at school,
I used to draw very complex things basically i tried to do something different than drawing a trainer or head usually i drew star wars scenes etc with very fine detail,
Then one day she ( Mrs Saunders ) lent me one of these weird looking pencils to do a picture still remember it was the scene from Jabba's dungeon from star wars by Ralph Mcquarrie a famous artist i coped his painting in pencil using one of these,
I would say i was a average to good drawer in ink or pencil (useless at painting tho) using this pencil i made a faint outline then drew this picture overlaid with extra detail about 7 times ,
Took me ages to do it i think my homework was extended by several weeks lol,
When i had finished i even shocked myself , my work ended up on exhibition in a gallery it was pretty amazing like to know were that picture went as never got it back,
I honestly believe changing a normal 2B Art pencil for these will improve your work so much especially if drawing fine detail like hair, any artist should carry rotring products maybe a bit weird if using old school pens pencils at first,
One common issue with newbies to rotring pencils and pens is they tend to press to hard and break nibs or the fine metal nibs from the isograph pens,
These are high quality products not cheap biros, the ink, pencil graphite just flows smoothly,
I so highly recommend these my corner of my bedroom looks like a rotring shop, i think i own basically everything they have made, most of it i was lucky enough to buy from a stationary shop that went bust and was sold cheap at a auction house sale,
I hope from video above and my own personnel story you learned a little more about this product and i seriously am telling you go to the link image on the left and bloody buy yourself a set,
p.s if you have a teenage girl like me hide these away, kids love stealing posh pens and pencils to show off with at school,
I have fell out with my daughter several times over my Parker pens going walkies and a rotring isograph set she borrowed without asking at lost the lid,
grrrr told you have a pen problem,.....yes Naomi if you reading this i know my Batman Parker pen set is missing!!!
Have a great day stay safe and warm, all the best Eterniacollectables.co.uk
