Introduction to the Zig Cartoonist Mangaka Pen

HI Everyone,

I wanted to pop by just to share this video with you about the new Kuretake Zig Cartoonist Mangaka Pens. These pens are very similar to the Pigma Micron pens that everyone is so familiar with but the finest tip of the Mangaka pens is a little finer. The Mangaka pens are waterproof, fade-proof and smudge-proof once dry. You also can use them over watercolors, alcohol pens, such as Copic markers and other medias. There are also brush pens that you can use in your lettering (calligraphy) and other drawing needs.

These are outstanding pens. Check them out in the video below.

If you like the video and want to see more, please give us a thumbs up on our YouTube channel and subscribe!

Thanks so much for watching!!
