Tangent #10: Icon Grids (+ Tangent)

Last weekend’s trip to the real art supply store also yielded a new trio of pens: Sakura Gelly Roll, Glaze, and Souffle, all in white.  I really like working in white on a dark background, and had recommendations for all. The latest post in Daisy Yellow’s Tactics and Tangents series gave me the perfect framework — and as usual, I took yet another tangent off of that.  DY Icon Grid + Tangent

On the left, the “pure” interpretation, albeit at a slightly larger-than-suggested grid size– just under a half inch — using mostly typographic characters as the icons. And on the right, my tangent-off-the-tangent, each grid filled with a unique pattern.

The final verdict on the white pens:  Gelly Roll is easy to use, goes on stark white and is in first place as go-to white pen; Souffle starts out transparent/barely visible, finishes with less distinct almost chalk-like appearance, suggesting subtle possibilities; Glaze starts out nearly invisible, finishes white but transparent, not sure when I will use but pretty certain I will.
