Pentel Prize Pack
Just got my Pentel Prize Packloaded with tons of goodies. Won it in a recent online giveaway. The sturdy Ogio backpack will make a nice home for my laptop, and the loot inside will provide plenty of fun tools for my studio and classes at the Art Center. It is a nice assortment of stationery and art products manufactured in locations across the world: Japan, China, Mexico, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, India, and Korea.
Sneak peek of the wide assortment of pens, markers, pencils, and erasers to be added to the lot of materials to be reviewed or taped in upcoming demo sketching videos. I expect that many will also work well as part of the optional classroom supplies in my drawing and sketching workshops.
Alberto Lung ("Lung" being the Spanish-spelling for "Dragon" in Chinese) completed a Master of Science and worked in Food Safety/Brand Protection for a few years before returning to his artistic roots. As a self-taught artist combining a scientific academic background, a passion for archaeology and mythology, and some Manga inspiration, I currently design and teach cartoon-sketching workshops for children to promote their visual literacy and creativity. I often rely on speed-sketching demonstrations of ninjas and fantasy creatures to engage young audiences and introduce them to suitable art supplies to develop their drawing skills. Love to sketch Sci-Fi and action figure concepts (robots, ninjas, and monsters) while searching for cool art supplies.
