Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens Review

by Cass Art

This Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens come from one of the world's largest and best-respected manufacturers of art supplies. Great for sketching, inking and creating stunning works of art they are particularly popular with graphic illustrators and designers. We look at a few examples of artists who use the Pitt pens in their work.

Chan Hwee Chong was commissioned by Faber Castell to recreate famous paintings using just the Pitt Pens. Created with only a single line they depict works by Leonardo DiVinci, Van Gogh and Vermeer. You can view how he created these masterpieces in the video below using a brush tipped Pitt pen to create a varying line:

You can find more of Chan Hwee Chong’s work on his website and find the brush pen online in large packs, individually in our stores or in the Faber Castell Pitt pen packs.

Daria Hlazatova uses inspiration from travelling, music, fairy-tales, theatre and animals and uses Faber Castell Pitt Pens to achieve a huge amount of detail in her work. Her work above was chosen by Florence Welch for her "Only if for a Night" single.  

You can check out more of her on her website or follow her on twitter or Facebook to keep up to date with her work.
