Homage to the pen. I am addicted to the Sharpie Ultra Fine Retractable pen. These handy disposable pens are the perfect tool for me as a watercolor artist. I can draw and doodle and then wash over with watercolor and the lines are clear and unsmudged. Since I am always misplacing pen caps I was very pleased when Sharpie has the sense to design these with a retractable casing. No more dried out pens and no more lost caps.
This is the preferred tool when I autograph my books. It writes smoothly and never smears. All hail the Sharpie of today. And now that I have an entire mug-full I have no excuse not to be working on the next book. I love this pen.
