Canadian Artists' Representation
CARFAC (Canadian Artists' Representation / le Front des Artistes Canadiens) was founded in 1968 and is a national, non-profit organization of professional visual artists whose objectives are to help visual artists in the practice of their profession, to improve the status of visual artists and to promote the visual arts. CARFAC has achieved endorsement of the principle of fair compensation through payment of fees to artist when their works are shown in public galleries. CARFAC works on artists' behalf on areas under federal jurisdiction taxation (income tax and GST), international relations and trade (export of art works), customs regulations and health and safety for artists.
I've been using Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph Technical Pens since 1969. My aunt bought me my first set when I was 12 and I have used them daily ever since. I love the fact that I can mix my ink colors to match my watercolor or my wardrobe and use "Pelikan Drawing Ink A" almost exclusively. Though the inks made by Koh-I-Noor and Winsor Newton are satisfactory.
If you are a beginner, I would NOT recommend purchasing anything smaller than an 0 (0.35 mm). Even as a professional I find cleaning a 4x0 to be a challenge. I work most often with a 2x0, and find them to produce the smoothest flow, if kept clean.
MisterArt.com has the absolute lowest price on the 20x26 size! I use them to protect my sample artwork on gallery wrapped canvas (18x24) and these help in transport to protect from scratching/marring. Plus, when it impresses the client when they see the canvas arrives protected in one of these. I'm waiting for them to get back in stock to order more. They are VERY popular for the reason I stated.
