Yes, Diane, TOMBOW MONO pencils are great.  I use them all the time.  They roll so smoothly over the paper.

Looking forward to seeing what you draw with them.

Diane, I noticed you have 3 new drawings from the Let's Draw" course. Have you attached them to a post yet? I'm sure there are many members that would like to encourage you and comment on them. I haven't looked at them closely yet but from what I see, you are off to a fine start.  :clap:

My absolute favorite pencils! Been using them for a few years now.  I've tried just about all the big name brands and nothing quite does it like Tombow.

I purchased some Tombows while in the US. Have to agree they are great pencils.  O0
