The tombow yo-I pencil...
, September 12, 2012
The tombow yo-I pencil grip is awesome. As you can probably guess, I am not a
kid anymore, however, i am youthful at heart, so when I saw this, I thought,
hey, this makes me remember vague snippets of trying to grip a pencil in first
grade, and how it would have been easier with this. So I got it. What do you
have to lose in trying it, it's a perfect add on item.
I bought this for nostalgia, but the reason I am keeping it is because it works.
Just enough friction to keep it on many different sorts of pencils and
stationery or artistic tools, yet it is simple enough to take it off the pencil,
pen, utensil in question. And it improves ergonomics and accuracy for me. Making
it almost effortless to grip a pencil, means I can focus on creating art work
that is above the standards I used to live by and thought were my limit. I mean,
I thought this would be a trinket of little to no usability, but it actually
steps up my game plan as an artist. A lot. And I have the feeling this little
blue gripper will last long.
So, if you are looking for a cheap, fill the free shipping cap sort of object,
then this is definitely the right way to go.
