I find that having a fun pen makes the writing or note-taking process a lot more enjoyable. Recently, I’ve tried out different types of dual-tipped pens, pens that have a fine tip at one end and a larger brush tip at the other end. These are great for art and note-taking alike. A couple brands I have tried personally are Tanmit and Tombow. I love the ones made by Tanmit because of the variety of colors, the compact size, and the fineness of the fine tip. The Tombow ones are larger, more blendable, and good for artistic projects. These pens are versatile and fun to use. It’s interesting how marketing these as “pens” instead of “markers” might make them more desirable, despite that the fact that they more closely resemble markers.
