Favourite Art Supplies

I have been asked how I do my illustrations and thought I'd post my favourite art supplies.
I prefer to draw with pen and ink. I really like using my very cheap calligraphy pen with a C-4 nib. Love the thick and thin lines, the little splatters and the happy accidents. Almost all of my work is done with this pen on rough 90Ib watercolour paper, using cheap india ink (as the final work will be scanned and manipulated in Photoshop).
When doing an illustration that I may want to frame/keep/giveaway I will use a better grade of paper (Arches).

I use Winsor Newton Series 7 paintbrushes when I paint in watercolours. They're the Cadillac of brushes, hand-made in England of Kolinsky Sable, expensive as heck and sheer joy to use.

When drawing in my Moleskine journal I like to use a Pelikan M200 fountain pen, or a Pilot V-pen.  The Pelikan M200 requires a good ink to ensure it doesn't clog so I invest in Carbon Ink. The V-pen is a great (cheap) alternative to an expensive fountain pen.

I scan my drawings using an Epson scanner. My computer is a Macbook Pro. When not using pen and ink I draw directly on the computer with a Cintiq. I use Photoshop for all my illustrations.
