These drawings happened during my flight from NYC to Los Angeles, on January 5th, 2013. Mister Pilot  G-2  0.38  worked on them for hours, then he died. But he always comes back (I carry a few of them wherever I go).

  1. Just put this on my art store list. I am in love with my black Staedtler Pigment liner 0.3 🙂 I love the drawings Elsa – they have something dark about this and its not just the color.

    • Bhavna, now that you mention the black Staedtler Pigment liner 0.3, I feel like buying one. I will do it. Also, I’m glad that you liked the drawings. They were somehow inspired by my trip to NYC combined with the movie that Bill is producing now called ‘Black Nativity’. It’s a musical about the story of the Nativity but with black characters, it all happens in the present. They will be filming in Harlem, where we stayed during our visit. It’s a wonderful project that I cannot wait to see finished.

  2. I know what it is to have a love affair with a pen. And…so amusing…I just purchased those very pens and they are sitting here, unopened on my desk as I read about how much you adore yours.

    That made me happy. 🙂

  3. I am now taking notes on what pens to buy the next time I’m shopping for art supplies 🙂 I’ve yet to fall in love with one but perhaps my luck will change? Thank you so much for the recommendations!

    And Elsa, I LOVE your new website!!! Congratulations on seeing your vision become a reality!!!

    • Hi Terry!
      I hope that you like the Pilot G-2 0.38 And I am so glad that you like Art is a Way! Happy New Year!
      Elsita 🙂

  4. I love your blog. I love your drawings. I went out today and bought the Pilot G-2, several sizes of microns, and a very tiny-tipped Prismacolor brush tip marker, size B. I want to expand my repertoire of line “looks”, so I am hoping one or more of these will click.

    • Have fun, Ann! And thank you for loving my blog 🙂

  5. I love the Faber-Castell PITT artist pens (all thicknesses!), but I may have to give the Pilot a try. I recently got a little bag to store them in properly (laying down instead of standing up). They are much happier, and so, of course, am I! Love the new site and its mission….

    • Hi Laura! I love the Faber-Castell PITT artist pens too. The truth is that I love so many pens! Thanks a lot for the tip about the right way to store pens. I just learned something new. Also, I’m glad that you like this site 🙂

  6. Now I have a reason to go to the art store! Not that a reason is really necessary, but it does make the trip a little more focused 🙂

    • Yay Amanda! Enjoy your trip to the art store!

    • Hi Joanne! I’m so glad that you left the link to the tokyo pen shop. I just went to visit it and I love it!
