This is a little game I like to call ‘How many Sakura products can you use in a three inch space?!?!’ Scroll right to see the progress of how I got to the final Gelly roll filled bird you see before you. P.s. you might notice the lighting is quite different in all three photos. This is very indicative of my process of creating with two small children. Pencil sketch was done with my toddler while my infant napped, inked while they slept and took a photo of the finished piece the next morning before the madness of the day began😅 #illustration#micron#pigmamicrons#ilovegellyrollph#gellyroll#sketchbook
Hello, everyone! @oonakc here again with a new dragimal in another micron favourite. Of course the standard black is a go to but I adore the red 005 for sketching. It allows me to build with other colours and create the subtlety needed for hair and fur details. What’s your favourite colour micron, other than black? #illustration#pigmamicron#micronpen#redpanda
Hello, my name is Oona Cassidy (@oonakc) and I am so honoured to be taking over the Sakura Instagram this week! I am a self taught artist living in SF with my husband and two daughters aged 2.5 years and 8 months. I have been a huge fan of microns for ages so this week I will show you some of my favourite products and how I use them in my work. I can think of no better way to introduce my art than with a new addition to my dragimal series. These are sketches of animals in wigs inspired by some of my favourite drag queens and their fabulous hair. I absolutely love the creativity of drag and find ostriches to be such beautiful animals it was natural that an ostrich was the first dragimal. And quite honestly, what’s better than an ostrich in a fancy wig?! This sketch in done with my two absolute standards: the 003 and 005. What nib size is your favourite? #dragimals💖 #micronpens#sketchbook#illustration#pigmamicron

G I V E A W A Y 🎉✨💌 The fun doesn’t end here! I’m teaming up with @sakuraofamerica over on my IG page to give away a copy of both my lettering books and some #sakuraofamerica lettering goodies! Check out the post over there for giveaway details. …. And remember, tap into that inner kid inside you. In middle school I remember loving Gelly Rolls and used them to decorate my binder, my planner and sign yearbooks. This joy is why I created my books and am thankful to the team at Sakura of America for helping to spread this message.

It’s @nicolemiyuki again to show you one more idea for Valentine’s Day. This is a great one to do as a family because who doesn’t love stickers! … Step 1: Draw your phrase use a #gellyroll on blank stickers. Step 2: Go back over the downstrokes (when your hand is drawing in the downward direction) and make that line thicker. This is often called faux calligraphy. Step 3: If you are a gummy bear fan, get a big pack and have your kids separate them by colors. Step 4: Put them in clear bags and add the stickers for a fun pop! These are perfect to give to your family and friends as well to remind them they are loved. #sakuraofamerica#byhandlettering#thekidsbookofhandlettering#handlettering#moderncalligraphy
