Tombow Markers

recently i found the artist:
she has just released a new book that looks wonderful:

she has been sharing various artists on her blog in celebration of her book
she has also shared wonderful 'how to' tutorials!

i did the piece above from her:

so much fun!
then i decided to do another 

one of my girls:

tombow markers are water based
so after making a sketch

simply take a wet brush to it!  

treat yourself to a tour of her blog
she is charming
and generous with tutorials
maybe you will even be inspired to purchase her new book!


  1. Hi Tammie :)
    hope you get a bit of pink happiness sent your way too :)

    i love your drawing, though i am sure i’d get very messy if i tried that water technique!

  7. Hi Tammie,
    I've never heard of these markers but will try them now. You made a lovely girl inspired by Carla. I love her work too. I can't wait to try out her new book. The first one was a lot of fun. I loved the Picasso dogs exercise. Thanks for reminding me of her work.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
