A Kitchen Counter Recipe (Plus New Tombow Irojiten)

1/4/19 Tombow Irojiten pencils in Stillman & Birn Epsilon sketchbook

This is what I call a kitchen counter recipe for a still life: Walk into the kitchen on a cold, rainy morning and grab all the produce available without opening the refrigerator.

I made the sketch with a newly released set of Tombow Irojiten colored pencils, which I just reviewed over at the Well-Appointed Desk. Although I’ve had the original set for quite a while, it wasn’t until last year when I developed a greater appreciation for harder cores that I gave Irojiten pencils more serious consideration (before that, I was perfectly happy to use the beautiful boxes as home décor). That’s when I finally wrote a full review of Tombow’s premium colored pencils. I have come to really enjoy using the harder cores, and the Irojiten palette includes some unique colors I don’t find elsewhere.

Go over to the Desk to read my new review, and in the meantime, have some eye candy.


  1. Your drawing has such a nice range of colors with these pencils. Nicely done!

    1. Thanks! I hope you helped yourself to some eye candy, too. ;-)
