Hi everyone, this is Samantha Dion Baker, and I'm honored to be the guest poster for @sakuraofamerica this week! I hope you enjoy following along, as I share some of my journal pages and artwork that I've created using my favorite Sakura tools. Here's artwork I made to send good vibes out for 2017 - all of the black lines were drawn with #PigmaMicron pens, and I've been having fun coloring it in using metallic and fluorescent #GellyRoll pens. Happy New Year! @sdionbakerdesign

Traci Bautista - I share my passion for art, florals & abstract painting and color through my online workshops and travel worldwide to teach mixed media. I’ve been a long time fan of Sakura’s paints, pens & markers. I love their colorful product lines, they are perfect for mixed media and art on the go in my art journal and inspiration sketchbook.

Hi again! It’s Samantha Dion Baker, and here I am sharing my recent journal page. I used #PigmaMicron pens to write and draw the images, and then painted with a 48 color palette Koi Field Sketch box. This larger set is a newer product, and I am so happy to have my hands on all the lovely colors! @sdionbakerdesign #sakurakoi

Hi there! Joyce (@writeprettythings) here, guest Instagramer for the week. I had to share my newest Sakura love, the metallic Gelly Roll in gold. I know, I'm late to the Gelly Roll game, but this has been my go to pen for addressing envelopes and adding sparkly details to larger handlettered pieces. And I will warn you, if you get into handlettering as a hobby, you'll end up buying new calligraphy supplies year round! #gellyroll #writeprettythings

@jingoillo again, and this time to give you a glimpse of my sketching arsenal, which I brought with me to Colorado. The #SakuraKoi 12-color Pocket-sized Watercolor set is perfect for on-the-go sketching. It doesn't take up a lot of space, and the water brush that comes with it is very handy, too! Also pictured are 08 & 005 #PigmaMicron pens and the brand new #SumoGrip eraser.

Hope you are having a fantastic week! @jeshypark here enjoying being the guest poster here at @sakuraofamerica. I’d have to say my hands down, all time favorite Sakura product is the #pigmamicron The archival ink is waterproof and the variety of sizes allows you to get very fine details. Here I used 01 and 005 to draw out the detailed facets of this crystal.

Tools for my @jillyink lettering workshop today at @pippacoevents. I love using Pigma Microns and Gelly Rolls for new students - the ink flows well, and they work great for anything from note cards to place cards. Tip: Practice thick and thin strokes by manually shading the down strokes to mock a traditional calligraphy nib. #pigmamicron #gellyroll #calligraphy #lettering

Hi there, last guest post from Liz of @tuccicursive! To inspire you to write a letter for #nationalletterwritingmonth, I am featuring some of my lettering and envelope art.  Renown author, F.

Your guest Instagrammer Yuko @honeyberrystudios here. This week I want to share my drawings using my favorite Sakura products! // I'm non-secretly a cat lady. I've always been one. So, naturally I draw cats very often! // This is a line drawing of my boy Sheppie curled up in his bed doing what he does best. Makes me wanna curl up right next to him right now in a giant cat bed! // Drawing made with black #Micron pen size 01 and I like to add a splash of color with Koi Coloring Brush Pens…

I'm guest Instagrammer @jillyink. I could draw feathers for days, and the Gelly Rolls (especially the Metallic gold) blend so beautifully so that every line seamlessly weaves into the next. #gellyroll #feather #gold

Hey, it’s @emilyfens, Featured Artist of the Week. In this video I detail one of my macroamoeba titled “Leo” with a Moonlight #GellyRoll in Fluorescent Yellow. Since my artwork focuses on the macroscopic versus microscopic in nature, detailing is very important. The Moonlight Gelly Rolls could not be better at giving me the controlled pop of color I want in the smallest of areas.

Step 1 - Sketch your bouquet with pencil. (Tip: Grab my book, Botanical Line Drawing for inspiration!) Step 2 - Trace your banner with a #PigmaMicron, preferably with a bolder tip like 05 or 08. Step 3 - Select a color of your choice (multiple colors if you'd like), trace the flowers that you want to enhance with a #GellyRoll pen. Step 4 - Finish tracing the illustration with a Micron pen that has a smaller tip than what you used on your banner. Step 5 - Add a short phrase to your banner…

@jingoillo here for one last hurrah! Here, I used a red #PigmaMicron Brush pen, a white #GellyRoll pen and another favorite, the #Permapaque Pigment Marker. Mixing and matching different mediums makes for colorful drawings that pack a punch! These bright colors are especially useful when getting rid of the winter blues. ;) Thank you so much for looking at my art! Follow me at @jingoillo where I'll be giving away @sakuraofamerica goodies like the ones I've featured this week! I also share…

More Moana this time, except it’s in a reverse style! For this method of quotation art, you write out your composition in pencil and then fill in the negative space with color. I used the same color combination I’ve often been using because they gel together so well – Blue and Green Moonlight Gelly Rolls and a Royal Blue #GellyRoll.

I’ve had a lot of fun guest Instagramming for Sakura and sharing my work with you this week! Today, I am sharing another set of process shots of my work. Here is another urban sketch I drew in pencil on location. As you can see, the sketch begins very loose and undefined, but begins taking shape when I begin to add ink with #pigmamicron pens. | Artwork by @abillustrator
