About a month ago my boyfriend came home with a treat in his bag for me and it was a Koh-I-Noor Magic Pencil. It’s not exactly “magic” but it’s a colour pencil, in which the lead has several different colours, and it makes a cool effect.
A while back (over a year in fact) I shared something from the New York Times which looked at famous artist’s favourite writing instruments, one of which was Milton Glaser, who loves this very pencil. He said: “When you use one, it makes even a simple drawing look complex and difficult, so the client thinks you spent more time on it than you did.” And it’s true! It makes a little doodle look much cooler. Even mine!
Ana at Well-Appointed Desk has also been writing about these too recently, and did a good “proper” review, here.
