There's nothing like new art supplies to give your productivity a kick in the ass! 

I've been having one of those weeks where a blank piece of paper is really intimidating. I started two watercolors, then ripped them to shreds after a few minutes. An acrylic flamingo I've been working on glares at me to finish up ... even though it doesn't have eyes yet. Experience has told me to not force artistic activity, but to try a different angle. 

And that angle is MARKERS.

I've never tried professional quality markers before because the cost always intimidated me. But I found an art store brand that was affordable, and holy shit - these are incredible. So why spend more on one marker than you would on an entire box of Crayola's? The answer to that is layering. It's so sexy.
