Each month JetPens likes to highlight a customer who is also an artist that uses JetPens products. This month we are happy to feature Chris Hunt.

Chris is a a self taught cartoonist, working out of Boise, Idaho. It has been his dream to draw comics since he was nine years old, and he is slowly realizing this dream. You can view more of his work at his website: thechrishunt.com.

Give us a little insight as to how you use our JetPens products in your illustrations.

My go to pen for sketching and professional work is the soft tipped, pocket brush pen manufactured by Pilot. I fell in love with this tool during an artist residency in Florida last year. While using it in a figure drawing class there, I had my first "breakthrough" in learning how to handle a brush, something I've sought for years. I can say without a doubt, once I began to master this tool, my skill level increased drastically, as well as the awareness for my art. This pen has had a direct impact on my success over the past eight months.

Thanks for sharing with us Chris!

Every month JetPens highlights a customer who is also an artist that uses JetPens products. This month we are happy to feature Shawn Granger. If you know of an artist that you'd like to see featured on JetPics, please email us at jetpromos@jetpens.com.

Shawn has been creating comic books since 2006 under the publisher name of King Tractor Press . His most notable work is the book series Innocent & Family Bones . He usually acts as a writer, but storyboards for his scripts whenever possible (He graduated with his BFA from Atlanta College of Art.)

Give us a little insight as to how you use our JetPens products in your illustrations.

I use a big assortment of mechanical pencils and pens I get from Jetpens.com: Uni-ball Kuru Toga Auto Lead Rotation Mechanical Pencil - Original Series, Pentel Graphgear 500 & 1000 Drafting Pencils, Zebra Drafix Drafting Pencils, Uni-ball Leadholders & Lead Refills (I LOVE the Mitsubishi 2mm leads and the .5 blue leads), Pentel Pocket Brush Pen for Calligraphy, Pilot Drawing Pens, and Sakura Pigma Micron Drawing Pens, Copic Markers. I just started using the Pilot Drawing Pens and they're a new favorite. The below buttons were colored with Copic markers and Photoshop. As you can see, I like to have a variety of tools so that I've got whatever I'm feeling. I even carry my pencils in a black Nomadic Upright Stand Pencil Case.

These horror buttons are a way for me to get my feet wet and work towards starting my first graphic novel in which I'll write and draw.

Thanks for sharing these awesome buttons with us Shawn!
