The wide range of 72 colors is available in tubes and pans. There is also a wide selection of sets that are handy to take with you. Always ready for use! 

Co-Captain Tip:
Watercolor tubes are very concentrated. So Don’t put too much watercolor on the brush.

Laurel Creative Clips

The LaurelClip, made in Germany, is the world’s first ever asymmetric paper clip. Thanks to its shape, it can hold two sheets of paper together just as effectively as 25 sheets. Clip legs of different lengths make this possible. The long leg is optimal for a thick stack of paper, the short leg for a thin stack.

Hi there! I’m Marine, aka Fox-M.B Illustration. I’m a freelance illustrator from France, and I work principaly with traditionnal tools.

 About me .. I’ve always loved to draw! Even when I was a little one, I drew late up night on my tiny desk and created stories and drawings. There are a few people in my family who paint and draw, or who are just interested by art. I was probably influenced by this way. At the beginning, I drew only for myself. I used to draw in order to express my emotions, my feelings, and it’s still the case today. It takes me lots of courage to show my work on social network, because it is so personnal stuff, and I’m a very private person. And then, I became a freelance illustrator 6 months ago ! That was really really big for me. Now, it’s very challenging! I give all I can to create illustrations and to improve my skills. Moreover, I’m trying to anwser to the most famous question for artists all over the world: How find my own style. At first, I used to be inspired by Mangas. It helped me a lot to capture body’s proportions, facial expressions, movement, and other kind of stuff. Since, I try to get away from that style and to improve a more personnal style. I am also inspired by many many things, many artists. For example, sometimes I just take a moment to watch outdoor and nature views, and think about illustrations ideas or just observe. I try to stay open-minded.Your Content Goes Here
