Copics I love them!!!

Not long ago I heard a lot of hoopla about Copics... I just didn't understand what everyone was talking about.  How come everyone was so excited when they got their first pens.  Once you had a few... why you had to get more. Why these were THE COLORING TOOL to HAVE.  

Well, my collection has started.  I made my second purchase of Copics this week.   I had to have a red and green for Christmas, then there is the blender, a few more browns for shading... yadda yadda yadda!
