Vendor Spotlight: Copic Marker Tutorials

We hope you’ve enjoyed this series of articles on Copic markers; we’ve certainly enjoyed putting them together for you. We’ve also enjoyed answering your questions, and hearing your excitement about this medium. Some of the questions you asked in the comments are worthy of articles themselves, and we’ve added them to our list of future topics.

Reading through the comments there was a constant theme (besides “Hey, gimme some markers!” 🙂 – “Where can I learn even more? I’m afraid to spend this much without tutorials.” You talk, we listen! So we sifted through the interwebs, and these are what we came up with, just for you. And, if you have a favorite that we missed, please feel free to share it in the comments. We’d love to add it to the list.
