All the stationery in my shop is drawn from my own holster! Sharing my illustration toolbox with you, these items are my personal favourites, go-tos for myriad illustration and lettering jobs.


These gorgeous, golden pencils from Japan are traditionally given for good luck ahead of an exam, and kept in one's pencil case or bag pocket. They're unusual in that they have five sides - pencils normally have six!


They have a soft, multi-purpose HB lead as good for drawing as for making notes, and sharpen to a delicious point. They're 7" long and a normal diameter; very comfortable to write with.


Even if they don't *actually* bring you good luck, they'll bring you good vibes: they glimmer in your hand as you use them. Buy them for yourself or for friends who have a nerve-wracking event coming up - whether an interview, exam or something else!


They come with pink, silver or blue kanji at the top. Leave the choice of kanji colour blank if you want one chosen at random!)
It roughly translates as 'Pray for success in academic achievement'.
