These alcohol-based dual-tip markers have a broad (7 mm) tip and fine (0,8 mm) tip. The ink is quick drying and water permanent.

Captain Crate Tip:

Actually, besides the two different line with of 7 mm and 0,8 mm you can make a third stroke size. Use the broad nip and hold the marker almost vertical to the paper. The edge allows you to make lines of 2,5 mm. Hold the nibs of two markers together and see how the color migrates to the other tip to great color shading with one marker. Best applicable if you hold both markers vertical. The color drifts from the top marker to the bottom

Do you have special places to find your inspirations from?

Music inspires me a lot, but also certain phrases or vibes can spark ideas. I usually try to pay attention to what’s happening around me or what I am seeing online, to use as inspiration. The smallest things, like a certain word or color, can spark an idea. I also write down ideas every now and then, to save for later.

What do you associate with Art Crew?

An Art Crew should be a community where you can show your art and reflect on it together. Where you can share inspiration together and create new ideas. It’s a group of people you enjoy talking to and hanging out with (have drawing dates!). Over the years I have made some new friends in the art community and created my own little art crew with them. We went on a few drawing dates together and it was a lot of fun.

What do you want to express with your art? What is the story behind your artworks?

I like expressing someone’s (or mine) inner world with my art. Themes like mental health are important to me and I like to cover these in my drawings. I also like to have a bit of storytelling in my art, even if it’s about very mundane things. I think there is also a certain beauty in that. No big feelings but just a recognisable feeling of peacefulness. My art features both inner rest and inner chaos. My art is based on my own experiences or feelings most of the time, my own moment of peace and chaos.
