Manga/Marker Paper by US Art Supply Review

Since school is about to start I'm trying to load up on art supplies. I recently got Manga/Marker Paper by US Art Supply to review.

I tried to sketch logo ideas on this with pencil first, and trace it with marker. The pencil wouldn't stick to the surface. It really meant for markers. 

I came up with a few logo ideas for the boys to have on t-shirts for school. I can't stand what the school comes up with, so I decided to sketch some out on my own. These are just preliminaries. Meaning they are the start of an idea, and not refined. Mica likes the middle one, and Isaak likes the bottom one.

The marker does go on the paper really smooth like. I'll share the final shirts with you when I get them done.
I'm also on a Mexican art kick, and doodled the crazy cacti below. I may or may not take the cacti further. If I do go farther with it, it will be mixed media.

Size: 9"X12", which is bigger than the standard size 8 1/2"x11" paper. 60 Pound - 24 Sheets
Cost: $6.96 - If you know anything about art supplies, that's a really great deal!

Other things about the paper:
  • Acid free
  • Neutral pH
  • Natural White Sheets
  • Used for sketching and other media - The say pencils work on it, but I had trouble erasing on it
  • Bleedproof
It was fun doodling on a different paper.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

My girls would like this paper. They are forever coloring and doodling their own designs. Your cactus is adorable!

I don't know anything about art supplies so I'll take your word for it that it's a great deal.
