I’ve always been on the creative side, but I’ve only come to that realization in recent years. My husband laughs because of my lack of realization. I’m a musician and I know that takes the creative part of the brain, but I only learned recently that I’m a pretty good artist too! It’s no surprise either that my kids are pretty talented when it comes to drawing and creativity. My daugter loves any opportunity to show her creative side, and she’s so good at it! We were both so excited to have some fun with a 90s flashback with Pentel POP Pens, and the opportunity to show my daughter how to create comics using Pentel POP Pens.

Miss Bea wasn’t sure what a comic was or how to create one, but when I showed her some samples she was all about it. The 3 key things you need for a great comic are: Catchy drawings, A short story and Humor! We’re still working on how to decide on stories for comics, but Bea is having fun practicing!

The giddiness Bea felt when a package of a wide assortment of Pentel POP pens arrived, was priceless. The different pen and color varieties had Bea’s mind going a mile a minute with what she should create.

Pentel Pens are perfect for comic creating because of the variety and bold and smooth colors. There’s something for every look you want to create, and the smudge-free ink is awesome! One bonus feature of these pens is that they’re great for my left-handed users too, because the gel ink dries so fast that there aren’t smears or smudges (a common issue for lefties).

My favorite childhood pens were the Pentel Milky Pens and the same goes for Miss Bea! I love the look and they’re great on light and dark pages. They’re just so satisfying to draw with! Bea used the Milky pens for a lot of her coloring in her comic, because the colors are creamy and so pleasing to the eye.

For a pop of something bold and bright, the Pentel Solar Pens are oh so fun. The neon colors here are great for a little extra “fiery” personality to your comics and art.

Since Miss Bea’s comic takes place in space, she decided the Pentel Sparkle Pens added the perfect touch for stars and a little bit of sparkling iridescent magic.

We’re still working on the concept of comic humor and storylines, but Bea has the art down! If you take a look at her last frame, the cow is being lassoed in space. I love watching my kiddos explore their creativity and use their imagination! Pentel Pens really help kids and adults to add pizzazz to their art and craft projects. The Milky pens bring back great memories of my childhood and coloring days.
