Utrecht vs. Markette
I think I found the replacement for the ol' Markette marker for live caricature jobs. A while back the manufacturer of the Markette changed the beloved nib to more of a bullet tip which did not perform nearly as well for thick and thin lines. This left many live caricature artists scrambling to find a replacement marker. The marker on the left is the Markette, the one in the middle is a new Utrecht design marker and the one on the right is a Utrecht after a couple hours drawing under it's belt. I definitely can't be as heavy handed with the Utrecht as one end of it is actually a brush type marker (the other end is a chisel tip) which requires a lighter touch. So far so good! Now if they just keep making the Utrecht marker the same for a while....
