I had met a talented illustrator, Sam Spina, who showed me a brush pen that he liked using. The only catch was that you could only get it by buying it from over seas from Japan. A little bummed, I let the idea of having that pen go. Just a couple months ago I was hunting through a local art store here, Meininger's, and I came upon the elusive brush pen I was seeking!
It really is a great pen, it is a Pentel GFKP. The one I bought came with two water proof ink cartridges but the pen is so versatile that you can refill the cartridges with other types of ink and keep re-using the cartridges. I haven't ever been so excited and pleased with a pen like this one.
