Preface

Markers are probably one of the most popular sketching media. They are versatile, expressive, colorful, and, above all, easy to use. Vet. because of their ability to adapt to a wide range of drawing techniques, markers are still used primarily as a substitute for other traditional sketching media. For example, the fine-point marker can be used to duplicate the performance of an ink pen. Likewise, the rainbow selection of Flair pens is used like an ordinary color-pencil set. Markers are popular because of their ease in handling and simplicity, rather than for their uniqueness, construction, and range of nib sizes and inks. This, unfortunately, does not encourage the development of drawing techniques specifically for markers. If this pattern persists, markers may always hold a second-fiddle position to pen and pencil, which have an ancient and respectable heritage.

This book emphasizes the unusual versatility of this remarkable drawing instrument and demonstrates its unique ability to combine its own quality harmoniously with many other media such as water-color. pen, pencil, and ink. It is my intent to encourage the use and increase the awareness of the marker as a superior sketching tool with unique qualities that can only be expressed thoroughly through the art of sketching.
