culturedPRIMITIVE/stockist: Muji Hex Double-Ended Pens.


I love to travel and I love to sketch, but I've never been able to be the kind of traveller who sketches. I think that when I'm exploring a new place, I have an easier time pulling out my camera than pulling out a sketchbook and some pens. But I'm trying to change that. On this trip to Bali I packed a new sketchbook (in the hope that I would feel compelled to fill the clean white pages) and a variety of Muji's Hex Double-Ended Pens. With one end a felt-tip brush and the other a thin pen, I could vary my line without having to dig a different pen out of my bag. And with a variety of nuanced greens and bright tropical hues on offer, I was really able to capture some of my island surrounds.

Wow, I wish I could sketch / draw like you. I was not born with such talents :0 In fact, I'm not sure what I'm good at in life. I'm just...ordinary. I don't have any standout talent :(
