Gentian's work leaves us truly amazed. Each picture has such a deep, melancholy look that doesn't necessarily convey sadness. It kind of makes you want to get into a deep reflection about life. We love it. This in-depth drawing was done with a Pilot Eno blue and light blue 0.7 mm mechanical pencil, and without a ruler too!

JetPens products used: Pilot Color Eno Mechanical Pencils.

Is a card company a possibility for the future? Because we want to buy happy birthday cards from you too! What a great use of the sparkly POSCA markers, Sigma Micron and Pilot Parallel pen. The glitter in the light blue shines through even in this picture! Great job! What a great gift for your friend.

We heart color samples! This one is particularly well organized and detailed. Combined, they showcase 36 of the 47 colors of the Hi-Tec-C! We like how Betty used boxes, writing, AND squiggly lines to show the color of the pen. Thanks Betty!

Ever since the Pilot Hi-Tec-C pen revolution started decades ago, pen companies in Japan have been competing to introduce newer and better gel pen lines. Each pen comes with an entourage of glorious new colors and multiple tip sizes. Though the Pilot Hi-Tec-C is the cornerstone for thin gel pens, each new line introduced every year has its own attractions. For example, the tips of the Uni-Ball Signo DX and the Pentel Slicci are much sturdier than the Pilot Hi-Tec-C, and thus can withstand a heavy hand and more pen writing abuse. That being said, whichever pen you decide upon, we know that you will be very impressed with the writing ability and construction of Japanese pens.

The following are some close-up pictures of the pen tips from three of the most popular gel pens on JetPens. From left to right the pens are: Uni-Ball Signo DX, Pentel Slicci, and Pilot Hi-Tec-C.
